Bear Creek senior Olivia Markezich won the 800 run at the 1A state track and field championships, which were held May 24-25 at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.
Her top time was 2:16.53.
She also took second in the 1600 in 5:04.18 and her twin sister, Andrea, placed fourth in 5:07.51.
In the 32oo, Andrea placed second in 11:05.97 and Olivia took third in 11:08.79.
Olivia, who will attend Notre Dame, noted: “I loved trying racing a new event and really worked on my speed this year, which helped me in the 800. I also love Andrea as a training partner. We know each other so well and how to get the best out of each of us.”
Andrea, who will attend the University of Washington, added: “I will miss traveling to Cheney for state each year and all of the friendships I have made with my competitors. Olivia and I are sisters, best friends and competitors that push each other to be our best. I will miss having that next year in college.”
