Recap 2017-18

The Dalhousie Woodsmen had yet another strong season, but maybe not by their standards.

The team, used to winning Canadian Intercollegiate Lumberjacking Association titles, saw its men’s team finish second in the season points standings while the women’s side was third.

Both the men’s and women’s A teams finished the season on a high note, claiming victory in their home event, the 33rd Annual Rick Russell Woodsmen Competition, in February.

The men also claimed a runner-up finish at a competition at Sir Sanford Fleming College while the women were third at the same event and the next meeting at McGill University’s Macdonald Campus.
