Ostrander was 12 seconds faster than the previous record, held by seven-time NCAA champion Abbey D’Agostino of Dartmouth (2013). The BSU women took sixth in the 36-team field with 275 points, while the men were 11th with 387 points. Michael Vennard led the men in 23:51.8 for 17th place in the 8k. New Mexico (32) won the women’s race, and Syracuse (101) won the men’s title. COMING SUNDAY IN THE STATESMAN: A PROFILE ON OSTRANDER
