Jordan Shearer, great-grandson of Gil and Marita Shearer, of Avoca, won three trophies during a recent Pinewood Derby.

A member of Cub Scout Pack 316, Shearer, took first place and set a new track record at Pack 316, which entitled him to go the Two Mountain Race in Exeter to compete against all other first place winners in his age group.

He took first place, competing against 36 other Wolf Scouts. He received a phone call from the Boy Scout Council on May 3, telling him that, because his car was fastest of the 2,000 Scouts of different ages that raced in Luzerne and Wyoming Counties that day, he would receive a third “Winner Overall” trophy.
