Alyse Schroeder, a Penn State junior majoring in science from Hayward, Wis., is the 2009 Stihl Timbersports Series national women's boom running champion. Boom running is a sport in which the competitor must run across a string of logs attached end to end in the water. The object is to run across the log boom, around an obstacle and back faster than your opponents.

Gradulations, Alyse, on your national championship and for being "too country".
