University of Nevada, Reno Secures Inaugural Concrete Canoe Victory
With equal parts technical skill, creativity and determination, the University of Nevada, Reno has captured their first ever national Concrete Canoe title at the American Society of Civil Engineers’ 21st Annual National Concrete Canoe Competition in Montréal. Their 19.5-foot-long, 160-pound, white canoe with blue and silver stain defeated entries from top engineering schools from across the country, and the win marks the end of three days of fierce competition and more than a year’s worth of blood, sweat and tears for the team, in their bid to capture the ‘America’s Cup of Civil Engineering’. The team’s closest competitors were the University of California, Berkeley and host school, École de technologie supérieure.
