Tesseract Running Club’s Kristen Garcia placed fifth at the NXN Northwest Regional Cross Country Championships on Saturday, Nov. 14, at Boise, Idaho.
She turned in a time of 17 minutes, 58 seconds — the top time by a Washington finisher in the race by 41 seconds. Garcia was in the top group throughout, running a 5:28 first mile and covered two miles in 11:18.
The time qualified her for the NXN National Championship, but she will forgo that event to race in the Footlocker West Regional Championship on Dec. 5 in Walnut, Calif., where she will attempt to qualify for that national championship.
