While her sport of choice may be deemed somewhat unconventional (at least to those outside the campus community), Korah Witherell’s perspective — as a member of SUNY Cobleskill’s Woodsmen’s Team — is hardly one of a kind. The second-year team member was profiled recently in her hometown “Olean Times Herald” where, among other subjects, Witherell discussed her role as a member of one of the College’s best-known teams.
From the article: “I tell people I chop wood competitively,” Witherell said. “It’s so much fun. I’ve always been an athlete, playing soccer, softball and track, but I like the uniqueness of this sport. I joined it in the spring of my freshman year, so I’m still learning.”
