    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern senior Audrey Huth (Shelby, Mich./Utica) received her second career Big Ten Runner of the Week award Tuesday in recognition of her performance at last week's Spartan Invite. Huth placed second in a field of 309 runners, including representatives from Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State.

    Huth, a 2011 All-Big Ten and All-Midwest Region performer, completed her first 6K test of the year in 21:06 in East Lansing, which will serve as host of the 2012 Big Ten Championships later this fall.

    Huth shared the weekly conference honor with Courtney Yaeger of Illinois. Her performance followed her first-place showing at the 5K Huskie Open a week earlier.

    Huth and Northwestern, currently ranked fifth in the USTFCCCA Midwest Region, return to action at the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday, Sept. 28 in South Bend.
