There's a freshman at Boise State University that's making some big waves in track-and-field.  She just got back from Eugene, Oregon with a fat trophy in hand.

 

Allie Ostrander was behind on the last last of the 3,000 meter steeplechase but found a way to dig deep and win.  Ostrander says the whole race she was trying to set herself up to where she could have a fast lap when it came down to the stretch.  Her strategy paid off as she pulled past Colorado's Madison Boreman to clock in a time of 9:41:31 which is the fastest time in college this year and more than 5 seconds faster than the rest of the pack.

 

This is only the 4th time Ostrander has ever even run this event.  She joins 9 others in BSU history to have claimed the 3,000 meter steeplechase national championship.
