    Alex Wilson Invite Results | NCC Last Chance Results

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern split its squad this weekend to enter in a pair of NCAA Last Chance meets, running against tough competition from the Midwest and across the country at Notre Dame's Alex Wilson Invitational and North Central College's Last Chance Qualifier.

    Four Wildcats traveled to South Bend for the Alex Wilson, where sophomore Lexie Goldsmith led NU finishers in the 5K event with her time of 17:09.07, good for 16th in the field. Juniors Ashley Greenwell and Lauren Neuschel were the next set of Northwestern finishers, crossing in 17:42.28 and 17:49.40, respectively.

    Junior Janelle Li-A-Ping also competed at Notre Dame, placing ninth in the 3K in 10:10.16.

    At North Central, Northwestern featured two runners in the 800-meter event with sophomore Libby Kocha earning a 10th-place finish in 2:21.39 -- six seconds ahead of her seed time. Kocha also impressed in the one-mile run, placing fourth with a time of 5:06.34.

    The Wildcat contingent dominated the field in the 3,000-meters, with Nicole Oliver (10:12.73), Julia Buford (10:18.05), Moira Ryan (10:26.16) and Allegra Mayer (10:42.23) claiming the first four places, respectively.

    Northwestern will resume its spring track schedule following spring break with Purdue's Mike Poehlein Invite on Saturday, March 31.
