State track meet preparations underway

Posted: Updated:
LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- Volunteers in La Crosse are hard at work to get things ready for the state track and field meet.

Tuesday, they set up mats and moved bleachers at UW-La Crosse's Veterans Memorial Sports Complex.

It takes about 700 to 800 volunteers to get it all set up by Thursday, when it needs to be meet-ready.

"State meet kind of takes over our whole week but we like it. It's probably our favorite time of the year when we're not competing,"  says UW-L track athlete Cy Badersscher.

3,000 athletes and 19,000 fans are expected to attend the meet, which begins Friday.
