Boise States 13th National Champion Crowned Back to Back
It's one thing to be the favorite heading into a national championship race but it's yet another to win in back to back years.
Boise State sophomore Allie Ostrander became a part of track and field history Saturday in Eugene winning the women's 3,000 meter Steeplechase for the second straight year earning Boise State's 13th National Title.
Ostrander finished 6 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor with a time of 9:39:28 and became just the second runner in NCAA history to win the women's Steeplechase in back to back years. The previous achievement was by Colorado's Jenny Barringer Simpson in 2008 and again in 2009.
Ostrander led from the start making it clear the path to victory on this day was going to go through the defending champion. Ostrander held off every challenge.
ESPN announcers called her the baby faced assassin because of her youthful looks a moniker Ostrander later said she wasn't happy about.
What did make her happy was the ability to be the favorite, have everyone gunning for you and still sail home to victory. Do we dear start thinking about a three-peat?
Remember, Allie is just a redshirt sophomore!
