    ROMEOVILLE, Ill. -- Northwestern returned from a two-week layoff from competition at this weekend's Chicagoland Championships hosted by Lewis University, where the 'Cats entered 14 runners in the 5K race and one in the 10K event. It was the first outdoor track meet of the spring for NU after spending the winter quarter competing indoors.

    Senior Audrey Huth ran away with the 5K title at the event with a time of 16:43.1 while freshman Camille Blackman was NU's second-highest finisher with a time of 17:42, good for fourth overall. Julia Buford was seventh in 17:44.4, while Jessie Baloga also recorded a top-10 finish in 17:51.2.

    In the 10K, junior Nicole Oliver finished fourth out of 12 runners in 38:54.5.
