After winning three consecutive collegiate national titles in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, Boise State great Allie Ostrander will forgo her final season of eligibility and turn pro.

Ostrander hired agent Ray Flynn of Flynn Sports on Sunday to represent her, and she is in the process of negotiating a professional contract.

Flynn told the Idaho Statesman Tuesday “Allie wants to prepare for the Olympics and become professional.”

Flynn said Ostrander has not yet decided what event she will pursue at the professional level. Ostrander won her third straight national championship in the steeplechase last month. She also finished the year with a nation-leading time in the 10,000 meters and ranked among the top 20 nationally in the 1,500 and 5,000.

Ostrander graduated from Boise State in May with a degree in exercise science and a 4.0 GPA.
