    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Looking to continue its pattern of recent success, head coach April Likhite's Northwestern squad will travel to Milwaukee this Saturday to compete at the 2012 Marquette Invitational.

    Northwestern is one of four area schools slated to compete in this weekend's meet, joining Marquette, UW Milwaukee and local foe Illinois-Chicago. Competition begins Saturday morning with field events, followed by running events. Complete results of Saturday's meet will be available at GoMarquette.com.

    One Wildcat will embark on a solo journey this weekend as junior Moira Ryan travels to compete unattached at the 117th Penn Relays on Thursday. Ryan, one of 22,000 entries in the prestigious three-day meet this year, will run in the Women's Olympic Development 10K race at 9:15 p.m. CT Thursday. Visit ThePennRelays.com for complete coverage of this year's meet.

    Northwestern's steady progress throughout its spring track season has resulted in several NU runners notching nationally competitive times. Specifically, junior Audrey Huth and sophomore Lexie Goldsmith each boast personal bests that rank in the top-100 nationally this spring, with Huth's 5K time of 16:28.83 checking in at 67th in the nation while Goldsmith's time of 35:42.06 in the 10K ranks 95th among all NCAA track runners this spring.
