MileSplit got the juice coast to coast this past weekend, which included some stellar performances as some of the nation's best went head to head.
One of the greatest stars ever in Alaska high school cross country is running now in Allie Ostrander. Well the next future star of the Alaska can quickly be found in two-time Alaska 1A-3A state champion Briahna Gerlach of Glenallen High School. After running a sub 11 3200 and 5:06 1600 last spring, the sophomore Gerlach won her second straight state title last weekend.

In her final Alaska state cross country championships, Allie Ostrander of Kenai Central made sure that her name would be etched in the record books as the all-time great for her state and for a long while in that by breaking the 31 year old state meet record by 44 seconds in her 17:06 win at the Bartlett High School 5K course. Now the question begins if Ostrander, one of the top runners in the country, will attempt to train and extend her season over two months in the approaching Alaska winter to compete for a national title at Foot Locker Nationals or Nike Cross Nationals.
