Student Monica Pina, Miles Ritch, Nic Anderson, Tiffany Perez, and Daniel Guzman. Forestry, Fire & Rangeland Management

"HSU Collegiate Soil Contest team placed 2nd in group judging (where all were in one pit) and 3rd in team judging (top four contestants overall).
The contest was held near CalPoly San Luis Obispo on Nov. 3. CalPoly SLO will host the national soil collegiate contest in April. HSU's team looks forward to competing in this national competition where 20 plus teams from across the United States will compete. The team improved from its first attempt at soil judging last year where it received two third place awards. Cal Poly leads the pack (and actually has the world's best soil judger on its team), but HSU outperformed Fresno State this year in the group event and was ahead of CSU Chico overall.
