Sophomore Allie Ostrander is the only college runner scheduled to compete in the 5,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Eugene, Ore., next week. The first round is at 5:20 p.m. Thursday, July 7, followed by the finals at 5:28 p.m. Sunday, July 10.

Ostrander finished second at the NCAA women’s cross country meet this fall as a freshman. She qualified for the national indoor track championships in March in the 3,000 and 5,000, but she had to drop out due to an injury and did not compete for the Broncos this spring.

BSU SWIMMER 58TH AT TRIALS: Graduated senior Sam Wicks finished her 100-meter backstroke in 1 minute, 2.78 seconds in the preliminaries Monday at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, finishing 1.46 seconds shy of qualifying for the semifinals.

Two more Boise State swimmers, senior Brittany Aoyama and junior Emma Chard, will compete in the trials Tuesday in the 200 freestyle.
