In Our Opinion: Cheers

We thank Dilello for all he has done, and we congratulate him on his award.

  

To the State University College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill Woodsmen Team.

Linda Serdy, one of the team’s advisers, said the close-knit Woodsmen Team reminds her of the kids from the ‘90s film “The Sandlot.” The 12 women and 16 men that make up the team come from an array of backgrounds and majors and get together five to six times a week to practice for competitions. The school’s Woman’s 1 team won first place at a competition at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. 

Unlike other athletic teams, the Woodsmen Team is a club and raises the majority of its own money for equipment and travel expenses. The club members are dedicated, yet still maintain strong grade-point averages, Serdy said. 

The team members show incredible dedication to something many traditional sports fan may scoff at. We applaud the members for their hard work, dedication and skill.
