May Named SEC Field Athlete of the Week

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Following a top performance at the 2014 Drake Relays this past weekend, Anthony May was named Southeastern Conference Male Field Athlete of the Week, as announced on Tuesday. It is the first SEC Athlete of the Week honor for the Razorbacks so far this outdoor season. May’s strong showing at the Drake Relays started off with a win in the high jump competition at a mark of 7-3.75, the second-best performance of his outdoor career. The victory height moves May into second place in the Southeastern Conference and ties for No. 3 in the nation. After winning the team’s first event title of the meet, May moved over to the triple jump where he leaped to a nation-leading mark of 53-0.75 on this second attempt. The personal-best jump was good for a second-place finish and takes down his previous personal-best jump of 51-2 set at the Arkansas-Oregon Dual last year.
