Eric R. Pilsl ’93 commemorated in article after his sudden death
Eric R. Pilsl ’93 of Wild Rose, Wisconsin, died suddenly Feb. 27, 2021, just hours before his stepson, Ashton Schwartzman, ran a race in the adidas Indoor Nationals in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
A touching article on milesplit.com ran Feb. 28. “A Performance Much Deeper Than A Race On Saturday Night” details Schwartzman’s decision to run and his team’s determination to make sure it was a win.
“I knew the only way to get away from it was running,” Ashton said afterward, adding, “Running is my passion. It’s what I live for. I knew my stepfather would have wanted me to race. He didn’t want me to worry about him. He wanted me to race for him.”
