LAST TIME OUT: Allie Ostrander and Yusuke Uchikoshi both captured 3,000m steeplechase titles in historic fashion at the Stanford Invitational, leading the way in what was a highly successful weekend for the women's and men's track and field teams in the Bay Area. Ostrander ran a 9:38.57, giving the redshirt sophomore the fastest 3,000m steeplechase time in the world so far this season, the Stanford Invitational meet record, the 14th-fastest time in NCAA history and the third-fastest time in Mountain West history. Uchikoshi ran an 8:38.32 for the victory, good for the school record and the fifth-fastest time in Mountain West history.

Alexis Fuller also made some noise in Bronco history, as her 4:17.80 in the 1,500m was the second-fastest time in school history, giving her the win in the section two race. The 5,000m was almost just as successful of a race for Boise State as Clare O'Brien (15:58.74) and Emily Venters (15:49.12) took fourth and fifth in the invitational 5k at Stanford, respectively, making them the third and fourth fastest in school history in the event. Miler Haller was outstanding in the 10,000m, running the second-fastest time in school history thanks to a 29:08.90.

Between the Stanford Invitational and the San Francisco State Distance Carnival, other Broncos to capture event victories included: Anna McDonald (3,000m steeplechase), Gracie Tostenson (5,000m), Drew Lindlsley (discus), Justin Stattner (pole vault) and Emily Stiles (javelin).

MW ATHLETES OF THE WEEK: Allie Ostrander and Yusuke Uchikoshi were named the Mountain West Outdoor Women’s and Men’s Track Athlete of the Week, respectively, the conference announced, Tuesday. Ostrander and Uchikoshi earning the honors marks the first time since May 5, 2015 that a male and female MW student-athlete from the same school won track athlete of the week honors the same week. The last duo to do it were Bronco alums Emma Bates and Jordin Andrade.

WOMEN’S STEEPLECHASE SQUAD: Ostrander leads a group of Bronco steeplers that currently rank No. 1 in NCAA Division I in the event. According to the USTFCCCA’s formula of taking the best four athletes in each event from each team, and then taking the average time or mark of the four, Boise State sits in first with an average time of 10:12.73.

The other three top steeplechase counting towards that average for Boise State so far this outdoor season include Minttu Hukka (10:13.63), Anna McDonald (10:27.88) and Kyra Lopez (10:30.85).
