Ostrander Wins, Bronco Women Take 2nd, Men 3rd at MW Cross Country Championships

Boise State's Allie Ostrander dominated a field that included six of the nation's Top 15 women's runners to win the Mountain West championship today in Reno.  Ostrander was named Outstanding Female Athlete, Freshman of the Year, and All-Mountain West Conference.

Ostrander led the Broncos to a second-place finish behind New Mexico, the #1 team in the nation.  Brenna Peloquin was 9th and Anna Holdiman finished 11th to both earn second-team All-MW.

Michael Vennard's fifth-place finish helped the Bronco men finish third behind champion Air Force and second-place Colorado State.  Elijah Armstrong, Chandler Austin and Rhys Park all earned second-team All-Mountain West.

Next year, the MW Championships are in Boise, and Bronco fans are already buzzing with excitement to see the Bronco team live.
