BOISE, Idaho – Boise State track and field redshirt sophomore Allie Ostrander was named to the 2017-18 Google Cloud Academic All-District 7 Track & Field/Cross Country Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the organization announced Tuesday.

To be eligible for selection to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, nominees must own a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.30, have completed at least one year at their current institution, and be a starter or significant contributor who has competed in at least half of their team's competitions.

The states in District 7 include Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

The CoSIDA all-district honor is the first of Ostrander’s career and marks the second-straight year that a Bronco earned the distinction, as Brenna Peloquin picked up the honor in 2017.

The native of Kenai, Alaska, has already put together an extensive list of 2017-18 achievements from the cross country and indoor track and field seasons with the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships (June 6-9) still on the horizon next week in Eugene, Ore.

Cross country saw her win the NCAA Elite 90 Award as the best scholar-athlete at an NCAA Championships while also earning All-America honors thanks to a fourth-place finish at nationals.

The indoor season brought in two more All-America honors for Ostrander as she was a member of the distance medley relay team that took fifth at nationals in a school record time of 10:58.93. She also took second in the 3,000m thanks to an 8:54.35, good for the highest Bronco individual finish at the indoor national championship since Eleni Kafourou won the 2009 national title in the triple jump.

The redshirt sophomore has already claimed the 5,000m Mountain West outdoor title and is set to compete in the 3,000m steeplechase and 5,000m at the outdoor national championship after qualifying in both events at the NCAA West Preliminary Championships last week in Sacramento, Calif.

The defending national champion in the steeplechase, Ostrander also has a perfect 4.00 cumulative GPA in the classroom and is currently majoring in kinesiology.

More information on nationals will be released later this week.
