2011 Warren Area High School graduate Kurt Sherrard is a sophomore second-year member of the Penn State Woodsmen Team at Penn State Mont Alto. Sherrard, and teammate Nathan Uhrich, competed in the Cradle of Forestry competition at the Forest Festival in Asheville, N.C., on Saturday, Oct. 6.
The pair won the first round of competition for the fastest time in building a fire from wood with three matches, and bringing a soup can filled with water to boil.
Sherrard was also a participant in the pole fell competition, in which students chop a tree with an axe to race for the fastest time. He and his team placed fourth in the event.
Pole toss was Sherrard's third event which involves tossing a log between two stakes. His team placed third in pole toss, and Penn State Mont Alto placed second as a team out of five colleges competing.
Eisenhower High School graduate and Gannon redshirt freshman Cody Crosby punted once for 31 yards in Saturday's 38-29 loss to Mercyhurst University.
