    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern senior Michelle Moriset (Troy, Mich./Troy) has been named the Big Ten Runner of the Week on the heels of her first-place finish at the Badger Season-Opener meet Friday evening.

    In an event that featured DePaul, Loyola (Chicago), Marquette as well as the host Badgers, Moriset handled the 4K course in a time of 14:14. Moriset's efforts helped Northwestern claim first in the team standings in the Wildcats' first outing of the year.

    Northwestern's last Big Ten Runner of the Week before Moriset was Audrey Huth on Sept. 18 of last year.

    Moriset and the Wildcats return to action this Saturday, splitting the squad to run in 5K events at both the Dartmouth Invitational and the UW-Parkside Midwest Opener. Both meets are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. CT.
