    UW Concrete Canoe Team competes in regional and national competitions

    UW’s Concrete Canoe Team took home first place when they competed in this year’s ASCE Pacific Northwest Regional Concrete Canoe Competition, held April 12-13. The competition was hosted by Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, WA. 

    Teams were judged in four different categories: design paper, final product, oral presentation, and race points. The UW team was placed first in the design paper and final product categories, and placed third for oral presentation and race points.

    Up against 13 other schools, the UW managed to land on top and earn themselves a spot at ASCE’s National Concrete Canoe Competition, which took place from June 6-8.

    At the national competition, hosted by the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL, the UW team placed 11th overall.

    Congratulations to the team for their achievements and efforts!
