Soil judging team wins regionals

Bloomsburg University’s EGGS soil judging team recently competed and won the regional competition hosted by Penn State. Advised by EGGs faculty member Matthew Ricker, the team secured a spot in the national contest coming this spring. In their second year of competition, the team beat eight other teams, including the previous champions from the University of Maryland.

The team had four individual students place in the top 10 and the A-team placed fifth in group judging. Top students included Eric Franz, second place overall, Josh Prezkop, seventh place overall, Dan Steinhauser, eighth place overall and Ryan Sullivan, tenth place overall.

Bloomsburg, along with the University of Maryland, University of Rhode Island and Delaware Valley College, will represent the Northeast region at the national contest in the spring. The competition, including 23 teams from across the country, will be April 23 to the 28 at Northern Illinois University in DeKlab, Ill.
