    EVANSTON, Ill. -- After a two-week hiatus, head coach April Likhite's squad returns to the track this Friday, sending representatives to Notre Dame's Alex Wilson Invitational as well as North Central College's Last Chance Qualifier in Naperville.

    Both meets draw quality competition from around the country as indoor track and field competitors are afforded one final opportunity to post qualifying performances for the NCAA Championships.

    Four Wildcats are headed to South Bend, with three of them -- sophomore Lexie Goldsmith and juniors Ashley Greenwell and Lauren Neuschel -- entered in the 5K event. Junior Janelle Li-A-Ping will be in the field in the 3K, looking to improve on her strong effort of 10:12.06 set in her most recent outing.

    Complete results from the Alex Wilson Invite will be available on UND.com, while outcomes from North Central can be found on NorthCentralCardinals.com.
