Woodsmen’s Team finishes in first place at meet

Written by 

The Haywood Community College Woodsmen’s Team finished first in the 2009 John G. Palmer Intercollegiate Woodsmen’s Meet and Forest Festival Day held at the Cradle of Forestry near Brevard on Oct. 3.

The HCC Lumberjacks piled on victory after victory to win by a 73-point margin against Montgomery Community College, North Carolina State University, and Penn State Mont Alto.

Haywood got off to an early victory in Quiz Bowl as sophomores Bill Sweeney, Dawn Salley, Derek Morgan, and Cory Walsh beat N.C. State in the first round and Montgomery Community College in the finals.

Haywood’s archers kept up the tempo with a first and second place finish, and HCC’s defending log roll team of Frank Potts, Jeremy Graves, Dawn Salley, and Rance Rogers made their under-a-minute win look easy. The lumberjacks placed in almost every event, but secured the blowout with several first-place finishes.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
