Despite the program's relatively young age, the NIU track & field and cross country has made their mark on the conference and national level.

Since 2004, the Huskies have qualified an individual or relay team to an NCAA regional meet on 19 occasions. In 2012, NIU set a program record with qualifiers in four events, including Janay Mitchell advancing in both the 100 meters and 200 meters. In that same year, Megan Gregory and Chanel Kellyman became the first Huskies to capture an individual conference title by winning the 60 hurdles and 60 meters, respectively.

The year 2007 was also a banner year for the program, as NIU sent their first athlete to the NCAA National Championships. That year, Ashley Morrow advanced to the national meet in the shot put, where she placed 26th.
