Former NIAC Athlete Competes On NBC Show “Strong”

Jill May, former athlete at Oak Hills Christian College, has reached the final three of the NBC show “Strong”. May, a member of the 1999-2000 MCCAA (now known as the MCAC) Women’s BB Championship team at Oak Hills Christian College, has used the tenacity she exhibited on the court to flourish in this grueling competition.  Paired with her tenacious personal trainer (Bennie Wylie), Team Blue has survived several weeks of heart stopping fitness challenges as the field has been trimmed from ten to three. “Strong” airs Thursday nights on NBC at 7:00 pm (Central).  On behalf of the NIAC Conference, we wish Jill May the very best and proudly proclaim, “Go Team Blue”!!!  (Visit http://www.nbc.com/strong for more information on the show “Strong”.)
