Austin, Texas (KTUU) Alaska’s Allie Ostrander became the first woman ever to win the 3,000 meter steeplechase national championship three times in a row at the NCAA Div. 1 National Championships in Austin Texas on Saturday.
Originally an alumna from Kenai Central High School, Ostrander finished the event in 9:37.73, and completed her three-peat in dominant fashion.
The red-shirt junior from Boise State impressed on a national stage just a
few days earlier, breaking her own record from 2018 in the semifinals on Thursday.
She still has to run the 5000 meter race later on Saturday.
