Soil Vols Qualify for Nationals!



The University of Tennessee Soil Vols have again qualified for the National Collegiate Soil Judging Competition based on their outstanding performance in the Southeast Regional Soils Competition this fall hosted by the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY. Our soil judging team (Tim Grant, Jonathan Allen, Thomas Wasson, Holly Ford, Jennifer Wheeler and Halley Coleman) coached by Andrew Sherfy and Mark Radosevich finished 4th overall, however the competition was exceptionally close with only 13 points (out of over 2100 available) separating the top four teams. Additionally, Jonathan Allen finished second overall in the individual competition and Tim Grant finished tenth both earning awards. The soil judging team eagerly awaits the 2013 national competition which will be hosted by The University of Wisconsin - Platteville next spring, the week of April 21st.

If interested in the soil judging team please contact Andrew Sherfy, asherfy@utk.edu.
