Badgers Win Concrete Canoe Competition

Go Badgers! This past weekend, my alma mater won its fifth consecutive title at the National Concrete Canoe Competition in Seattle, Wash. Team members from the University of Wisconsin-Madison paddled their 179-lb. concrete canoe past 17 other competing teams from across the nation to become the 2007 ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition. The Badgers will compete internationally this fall at the Dutch Concrete Canoe Challenge in the Netherlands. The contest is sposored by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
