CC senior receives USA Cycling scholarship
Colorado College senior Kay Sherwood has been awarded a Stenner Scholarship from USA Cycling. Sherwood, an senior environmental policy major, received the scholarship for her academic achievements, athletic accomplishments, and service to the community with an emphasis on collegiate team involvement and leadership.
Sherwood maintains a 3.4 grade point average while competing both on the road and in mountain biking for the CC’s cycling team. After being introduced to cycling as a first-year student, Sherwood was quick to enter her first bike race and went on to qualify for road nationals that year. The Tiger squad then introduced her to mountain biking where she went on to take the Division II short track national title as a sophomore. The Ipswich, Mass. native has since collected four USA Cycling Collegiate National Championship medals on both the road and the mountain bike while working tirelessly to introduce more women to the sport and her Tiger team.
