Reading your logs shows: You are connecting to a server named FUTCHERIMAGER to get your Internet which seems to have some problems with your connection.

I had the same problem where my fan was running on high virtually the entire time I was using my Macbook Pro (mid-2014), and found this site.

Fan function is regulated by temperature sensors. As long the temperature is to high the fan keeps working regardless if you are in sleep mode or not. Since you turned off the heat source that action is usually very short. Somewhat like you car fan, that continues to spin even if you turn off the engine if the temperature is to high.
