Boise State Bronco Women Finish 11th, Men 16th at NCAA Cross Country National Championships

It was a big day for Boise State at the NCAA Cross Country Championships.

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky--Freshmen Allie Ostrander and Brenna Peloquin guided Boise State to an 11th place finish at the NCAA National Cross Country Championships today.  Ostrander finished second individually while Peloquin was ninth.  The Bronco men, also making their second appearance in the 31-team field at Nationals, finished 16th.  For both, it was the best finish in school history, with the women tying the mark set last year.  

Ostrander's finish made it three years in a row that a Boise State woman has finished in the national top three.  Emma Bates finished second in 2013 and third in 2014.

Ostrander was near the front for most of the race, joining Notre Dame's Molly Seidel and Dominique Scott of Arkansas in a group of three leaders who separated themselves from the field.  Ostrander nearly ran down Seidel at the end, but finished five seconds behind.  

Ostrander finished first or second in every meet her freshman season, and her time of 19:33.6 is 19.5 seconds faster than anyone who will return next season.  Ostrander and Peloquin both earned All-America honors, the first time in school history that two Broncos were named All-America in cross country in the same year.

Freshman Elijah Armstrong finished 70th individually to lead the Bronco men.

New Mexico won the women's team title with 49 points while Syracuse upset Colorado to win the men's naional championship.
