    Dr. Keeler Invitational -- Day One Results

    NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Northwestern's final outing of the 2014 spring track season took the Wildcats to nearby North Central College in Naperville, where NU joined other area schools at the annual Dr. Keeler Track & Field Meet.

    Northwestern stood tall in the 5K event, where sophomore Elena Barham led the Wildcats and placed second overall with her time of 17:20.6. Freshmen Andrea Ostenso (17:22.4) and Jena Pianin (17:25.8) were close behind Barham to take third and fourth overall and end their spring competition seasons on a high note. For Barham, the time was an improvement of nine seconds over her effort at last month's Chicagoland Championships, while Ostenso cut more than 25 seconds off her time at the same meet.

    Complete results from Northwestern's participation at the 2014 Dr. Keeler Invite are linked at the top of the page.

     

     

    Next fall, the aforementioned trio of Barham, Ostenso and Pianin will look to lead the Wildcats in their effort to continue their climb in the Big Ten and NCAA Midwest Region. Along with a strong corps of returners, head coach April Likhite also will welcome five promising freshmen to the Wildcats roster this September.
