Allie Ostrander is a rare distance gem found on the remote Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. A 3-time state cross country champion and 10:03 two-miler on the track, the small-framed Ostrander’s mountainous rise has mystified and intrigued a nation. She has quickly ascended in the past 6 months to be considered one of the country’s best high school runners and has earned a US #1 ranking this fall.
Anne Marie Dunlap collapses near the finish and Baylor teammate Madison Zimmerman and Minnesota’s Kate Bucknam help her to the finish line at the NCAA Cross Country Championships. None of the athletes were disqualified as Anne Marie, Kate, and Madison finished 239th, 240th, and 241st, respectively.
We’re here at the Blue Carpet event before the McFarland USA showing and we asked the athletes which actor would play them and their coach in a cross country movie.
The current Colorado Buffaloes team has been labeled as the best in school history. Fresh off last year’s NCAA title, the 2014 team has history in front of them if they can go back-to-back this Saturday in Terre Haute. Doing so would make them the first Colorado team to win consecutive national titles. When we followed this team at the beginning of the season, they weren’t buying into the whole “best team ever” talk, or allowing their focus to shift beyond the day’s work. After all, it’s harder to defend a title than it is to win one. While the Buffaloes will be heavily favored in Terre Haute, don’t expect them to rest on their laurels. For someone like Jake Hurysz, who missed last season with injury, all the matters is this year, his last shot to be a part of a national championship.

Dedication. Mark Wetmore gives that much to his athletes, and he expects it in return. Being a part of the storied Colorado program takes a special type of runner who is willing to give up anything that does not foster success. For the Wetmore Factor to be effective, the pupils have to trust that their leader has them ready to win a national championship, and vice versa. The 2004 and 2006 Colorado teams won NCAA titles because their coach instilled in them the confidence that they could win. Facing the powerful Wisconsin Badgers both years, the Buffaloes executed their patient race strategy to perfection, beating the higher ranked Badgers by running the smarter race. The Wetmore Factor once again made the difference. In Episode 2 of THE PROGRAM, we talk with the athletes that were a part of those championship teams.

When Mark Wetmore arrived at the University of Colorado as a volunteer assistant in 1992, the Buffaloes had never won a national title. Since taking over the program in 1995, Wetmore has been a part of six NCAA Championships and has established himself as one of the best coaches in the world. What transformed the Buffaloes into a dynasty? It was Wetmore’s unrelenting work ethic, and his attention to detail, a trait that many have labeled as “The Wetmore Factor.” In truth, there is no one special workout or type of training that fosters Colorado’s success, but instead it is Wetmore’s refusal to be satisfied with the past, and his ability to adapt with each new crop of athletes. In Episode 1, we go back to Wetmore’s start in Boulder, and begin to see how the foundation was laid to build a championship level program.
