The Kenai Peninsula running phenom known as Allie-O commanded the attention of the national track scene Friday afternoon with another dazzling performance.
Inside the atmospherically controlled conditions of the Dome in Anchorage, Kenai Central senior Allie Ostrander kicked off her final high school track campaign with a mind-bogglingly fast time of 9 minutes, 59.33 seconds, in the elite coed 3,200-meter race at the Big “C” Relays.
“I’m just so excited and happy,” Ostrander said Friday night from Anchorage. “If I would’ve gotten ten (minutes) flat, I was gonna be so mad.”
