HCC student advances to championships

Written by 

Daniel Jones, a forest management and fisheries/wildlife management student at Haywood Community College from Hayesville, took home top honors in the Stihl Timbersports Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Qualifiers.

The event was held April 17 at Penn State Mont Alto.

Chopping and sawing through four professional lumberjack disciplines — the single buck, standing block chop, stock saw and underhand chop — Jones bested six other collegiate lumberjacks to take the Mid-Atlantic title, earning a $1,000 scholarship from Stihl for his school and advancing to the Collegiate Championship at the Oregon State Fair Aug. 26-28.

At the Collegiate Championship, Jones will compete against four regional qualifier champions and one wildcard pick to determine the nation’s top collegiate lumberjack.
