UE Concrete Canoe Team places 10th at Nationals

Posted: Updated:

The University of Evansville Concrete Canoe Team got 10th in the National Concrete Canoe competition this weekend. 

The finish is only the second time in team history the team has cracked the top 10 at nationals.

The team advisor shares with 14 News that he's really impressed.

"It's a greatly satisfying kind of feeling. I'm really proud of them. That was a great reward for all of the hard work they put into this because they don't actually do this for class credit. They do this after they do all of their projects, exams and homework. They spend a lot of late night hours on this," team advisor Mark Valenzuela says.

UE was the smallest school competing and the only private university in the U.S. to finish in the top 10.
