RUSTON, La. (AP) - Louisiana Tech students will represent the Deep South in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ national concrete canoe competition.

Tech beat teams from other 14 other universities in the regional student conference last week in Memphis, Tenn.

The university says Tech won first place in all three competitions: endurance and sprint races and technical papers.

The team is the sixth from Tech to win the regional competition, in which students build canoes made from concrete.

The University of New Orleans is the only Louisiana school on the list of past national winners. It won in 1994 and was among the top five in 1992, 1993 and 1995.

This year’s national finals are June 19-21 in Johnstown, Pa., at the University of Pittsburgh campus there.
