Mont Alto Woodsmen receive $1,000 prize from Stihl

10/5/2010 —

Last Spring, Mont Alto Woodsmen Team member Tim Benedict qualified for the 2010 Stihl Timbersports Series Championship held in Oregon this summer. He had won a regional event that placed him in the top six logging sports athletes in the nation. According to a Stihl press release, Benedict "did very well against a very strong field and was an excellent representative" of Penn State Mont Alto.

Benedict has moved on to Univerity Park to finish his degree in forest science but when given the opportunity to designate a $1,000 prize to the department or program of his choice, he chose the Woodsmen Team.
