“The first day didn’t quite go as planned, and it had the team feeling pretty down about our results. After a motivational speech and some group singing, the Sylvans woke up on day two determined to bring the trophy back home. We placed in the top three in every event on day two, and I couldn’t be prouder of how the team performed,” Jacob Sanders, Sylvans president and forestry major, said.

“I couldn’t even begin to describe how nervous I and the rest of the team were during the awards ceremony, but it didn’t compare to the excitement that we all felt when the SFA Sylvans were called for first place overall,” Sanders said.
