Lumberjack Falls Short of Final

Forestry student Logan Scarborough dominated the lumberjack competition at the Southeastern Conclave, missing an invitation to the championship by two points.

Scarborough, the favorite, finished first in three of four events: underhand chop, standing block chop and single buck. But he misjudged a cut in the fourth event, stock saw, earning no points. He was among seven competitors disqualified in that event.

ESPNU plans to air the competition in July as part of the Stihl TimberSports Collegiate Challenge. Winner Brad Sears of the University of Arkansas-Monticello will compete in June in Columbus, Ga.
