|Caleb Hawkins and Coach Shawn Swartz prepare for the Single Buck|
Last Friday Caleb Hawkins and Coach Shawn Swartz traveled to the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA to compete in the Stihl Regional Qualifier.
Caleb put up great times at the event, besting all other competitors by a significant margin. However, although his times put him solidly in first place in every event, he hit his line in the Stock Saw resulting in a disqualification.
This resulted in a second place finish out of thirteen schools, missing an automatic bid to return to the National Championship for the second year in a row. However, he has been told he sits in a very good position to receive a wild card invitation. He intends to continue training until the invitations have been announced.
