ASCE Regional Conference Results!!!!

An announcement from Dr Hall.
ASCE Regional Conference Results!!!!
TO ALL: 
A hearty CONGRATULATIONS! to the ASCE team(s) competing in the Regional Conference this weekend in Kansas.  The UA brought home some hardware: 
  • The SPIRIT AWARD!!
  • 1st in Technical Paper – well, done Ben Whatley!!!
  • 1st in GeoWall
  • 3rd in Concrete Bowling Ball
  • 8th overall in Concrete Canoe
o   5th in presentation
o   6th in final product
  • A complete and well-constructed steel bridge; just a bit too much deflection upon loading, unfortunately (only 3 of the teams at the conference – out of 14 – successfully loaded bridges to completion)
 
Overall, a very, very successful Conference! 
So many folks to thank – too many to name individually – but I will highlight Dr. Coffman for traveling to the conference as the faculty sponsor. 
This is a good legacy on which to build for next year!  Go Hogs!
