Middlebury College students are into a different kind of competitive sport these days: logrolling, says the Addison Independent. Similarities, like technique and “equipment” are comparable between them and the lumberjacks who perfected the sport, but there are also visible differences: bathing suits replace plaid wool shirts and boots, and the competition is held in a pool. The three Hoeschler sisters all have taught logrolling at Middlebury college and all have won top national spots in logrolling championships.”Logrolling, as a sport, is a lot like learning to play an instrument, in that the learning curve is very steep,” said the sisters’ mother, Judy. All agree that it is a safe sport, as the logroller is pushed away from the log when falling off, thereby avoiding head injuries. It’s catching the interest of spectators and competitors. Summer Olympics anyone?
