A St. Lawrence University graduate is in contention to represent the U.S. in the Olympics next year, but he may wind up representing his country in a different way, in a different place.

Travis L. (Lawton) Redman '98, of Florence, Vermont, is a biathlete who is expected to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team for the games in Salt Lake City. However, Redman is also a member of a Vermont National Guard unit that specializes in mountain warfare, and those skills may be needed, should the U.S. become engaged in military activity in Afghanistan.

An environmental studies and biology major at St. Lawrence, Redman participated in track, cross country and skiing while a student. The sports network ESPN recently did a story on him; to read it, visit their Web site.
