National Champion Logger Sports Team to Showcase Talents in Columbia Falls

By Beacon Staff

What does it take to be the best logger sports team in the nation?

The Flathead Valley Community College Logger Sports Team, which finished the season undefeated and won its second consecutive national championship, will showcase this year’s talent at a demonstration on Saturday.

The team will conclude its season May 12 by performing free demonstrations for the community at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the Family Forestry Expo in Columbia Falls.

This group has developed a tradition of excellence and a reputation of integrity. The team won the Top Sportsmanship Award at the national competition.

We should be proud to call them our own.

FVCC has another group competing this week as well. A team of FVCC students will play against a team of FVCC employees in the first Annual Softball Smash. The event is Thursday, May 10, at 4 p.m. at Conrad Complex, field five, in Kalispell. The game will raise funds for the college’s Emergency Giving Fund, which was established in 1995 to help students stay in school by assisting them through a temporary situation that makes it difficult for them to concentrate on college. The fund provides students with grants of up to $200.
