    2013 Cross Country Schedule

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- With the start of its 2013 season delayed one week by a canceled meet, Northwestern is ready to officially kick off the campaign at Friday's Badger Season-Opener meet hosted by Wisconsin.

    Staged at UW's Thomas Zimmerman Cross Country Course, the meet begins with the women's 4K event at 5 p.m. CT. Northwestern is joined in the field by DePaul, Marquette, Loyola (Chicago), UW-Green Bay, Edgewood and the host Badgers.

    Led by the return of senior Michelle Moriset, April Likhite's Wildcats garnered a No. 5 ranking in the USTFCCCA Midwest Region to open the year, behind only Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Tulsa. Northwestern placed fourth in its region at the NCAA Regional Championships a year ago.

    Of the field competing Friday afternoon, Loyola (Chicago) is behind Northwestern at No. 11 in the Midwest Region, while Wisconsin checks in at No. 6 in the Great Lakes Region.

    Team and individual results from Madison will be available on NUsports.com following the meet.
