WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Wearing her John Deere "Sweat Green" T-shirt, Erin Canfield looked ready to compete Saturday night in the Don Schwartz Memorial Stock Tractor Pull.
The 17-year-old Sharpsburg girl sat on her John Deere 4230 tractor and waited eagerly for her chance to pull in the 10,000-pound class.
"I'm excited to be part of the competitions," Canfield said.
The tractor pull competitions were part of the many events at this year's Washington County Ag Expo & Fair.
The event, which is presented by the Washington County Farm Bureau and the Washington County Tractor Pullers Association, is separated into eight classes ranging from youth to pro stock. Participants must use their tractors to pull a weight transfer device that gets heavier the farther it is pulled. Cash prizes were awarded to those who placed first through fifth in each class.
Canfield's friends, who sat on a truck bed near the finish line, cheered her on.
