UW-L's May carries on family tradition

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

It will be a busy weekend for the UW-La Crosse women's track team.
They will send nine athletes to the NCAA Div. III Nationals to compete in six events.
Among them is Elizabeth May, who will run in the 4 by 100 relay, just like her older sisters Ashton and Maggie did for UW-L.
Keeping the family tradition going was one of Elizabeth's goals heading into her senior season.

"I came in my freshmen year as a 400 runner and slowly transitioned and increased my speed a little more.  That was my goal all season was to make the 4 by 100 since my two older sisters were on it.  Since I was a 6th grader, I've been watching my sisters compete.  All I've ever wanted was to follow in their footsteps.  I think it's a good way to end my career too is be on that relay at nationals like they were,"  May said.

Also competing for UW-L this weekend is Logan graduate Tore Washa (4 by 100 relay) and Cashton's Betsy Schreier in th triple jump.
