    EVANSTON, Ill. -- As its competitive spring track schedule rolls on, Northwestern will be running on two fronts this weekend beginning at the prestigious Drake Relays Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa. NU's Sophie Ewald and Audrey Huth are in the 5K field while Ashley Greenwell will be running the 10K at the Drake Relays, which this week is hosting more than 7,200 track and field athletes from around the world.

    Both the 5K and 10K events will take place on Thursday. Complete results of the races will be made available on the official Web site of the 2010 Drake Relays.

    Huth and Ewald are coming off strong 5K performances at the Chicagoland Championships where they posted times of 16:52 and 17:01, respectively, both of which bettered the previous track record at the University of Chicago.

    Greenwell completed the 10K in 38:12.51 at the same meet in her debut at the distance.

    Following its showing at the Drake Relays, Northwestern will be sending the remainder of its squad to compete at the Marquette Twilight Invitational Saturday in Milwaukee. Complete results can be found on NUsports.com following the event.
