    Alex Wilson Invite -- Event Info

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern is set for its final weekend of indoor track competition before a one-month hiatus prior to the start of the competitive outdoor season. The Wildcats are sending a host of entrants to the nationally competitive Alex Wilson Invitational hosted by Notre Dame as well as a Last Chance Qualifier event hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

    On Friday, head coach April Likhite will watch as three NU runners compete in a field of 25 in the 5K event in South Bend -- rising seniors Julia Buford and Michelle Moriset as well as first-year Elena Barham. Moriset and Barham each will be competing at Notre Dame for the second time this spring having posted strong times of 17:16 and 17:45, respectively, in the Meyo Invitational on Feb. 2. Start time for the 5K race is set for 6 p.m. CT.

     

     

    On Saturday, senior Audrey Huth and freshman Jessie Baloga each will compete in the 3,000-meter event beginning at 10:30 a.m. CT. Huth will be looking to match her effort of 9:34, also recorded at Notre Dame one month ago.

    The UW-Stevens Point "Pointer Qualifier" is set for Saturday, March 2. Visit the track and field page at athletics.uwsp.edu for more information.
