Bear Creek’s Andrea Markezich continued her successful cross-country journey by reaching the podium with a 20th-place finish at the NXR Northwest Regional Championships on Saturday in Boise, Idaho. Her 5K time of 18 minutes, 25 seconds matches her fourth-place 1A state time.

She finished first at the Twilight Invitational and King’s Invitational this season.

According to Bear Creek coach Carla Darr, NXR was a challenging course with hairpin turns, half a mile of sandy beach and two steep up/down hills. Markezich finished third amongst Washington girls.

Markezich will next compete at Nike BorderClash this weekend in Portland where she was hand-chosen to participate after her performance at state.

Her twin sister, Olivia, made the podium in all of her races this season and finished 38th at NXR in 18:43 as the 11th overall Washington girl. Olivia took sixth at state.
