RENO, Nev. (AP) - University of Nevada, Reno engineering students are floating high in a concrete canoe.

UNR’s 39-member team called Alluvium took home top honors last weekend at the Mid-Pacific Regional Conference hosted by the American Society of Civil Engineers and California State University Fresno.

The Nevada team finished first in all four categories including racing, canoe aesthetics, design paper and oral presentation. The team now heads to the national concrete canoe competition to be held at University of Pittsburgh in June.

Engineering competitions also were held in steel bridge, transportation, water research, water treatment and geo-wall construction.

UNR’s water treatment team took second place for both design paper and oral report.
