WWC Timbersports team in action

Our timbersports team, coached by Forestry Crew supervisor Shawn Swartz, competed at the 15th Annual John G. Palmer Intercollegiate Woodsmen’s Meet at the Cradle of Forestry  on Forest Festival Day, October 2.

The newly formed intramural timbersports team achieved first place in women’s and men’s stocksaws; third in pulp toss, pole fell, ax throw and bolt split; and fourth place in Jack and Jill crosscut.

Participating colleges included Penn State Mont Alto, Virginia Tech, NC State, Haywood Community College, Montgomery Community College and Warren Wilson. The team was extremely appreciative of all of the support they received from other competitors.

Here’s a video of the Jack and Jill crosscut event.
