Believe us when it is said that we love to hear from Teams across the land...WE LOVE IT!!!

From Chico

On MidPac '08:

The 2008 Chico State Steel Bridge Team placed third overall in the Mid-Pac competition. The team began the design of their bridge in the fall semester of 2007 and the construction process started in March. Aaron Malatesta, a senior civil engineering student and the team's captain, had nothing but good things to say about the team's performance, “The collaborative effort of all the individuals who helped make the bridge possible led to an amazing performance in an extremely competitive group.”

Each team's bridge was judged based on their timed construction of the bridge, the strength of the bridge, and it's weight. Of the seven universities competing, Chico finished third in each area. The team has lots of new ideas for next year's bridge and they look forward to the 2009 Mid-Pac competition in Reno.

With a bit more practice and a few fixes, the Wildcats would've done some damage in Gainesville...we need more Steel Bridge Teams to come out!!! Nevada Reno, this means you! We also need another couple of invitees, if Ryerson can't get it done invite the Japanese or the South Korean National Champion...or better yet, let's invite the Germans!!!
