Congratulations to our Steel Bridge Team for having the stiffest bridge in the nation! The team tied for first in the Stiffness category with the University of Central Florida and topped the other 43 teams competing at the national competition held May 22-23 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since the tie-breaker used the Display category score, the team brought home the second place plaque. Regardless, we can say with certainty that no other bridge in the country was stiffer! This marks the second year in a row that Seattle University has been a leader in the Stiffness category. Last year, the team tied for second in Stiffness, and was bumped to third based on the Display tie-breaker. Watch "The Build" here.
To qualify for the national competition, the SU team placed first in Stiffness and Efficiency at the regional competition in Helena, Montana. Their second place overall finish out of 14 teams qualified them for the national competition.
The 2008-2009 team members were: Alan Chun, Jennifer Davis, Kavik Frol, Vanessa Mitchell, Royce Miyahara, Brian Olmsted, David Palmiter, Michael Shattuck, Jeri Shimazu, Glenn Strid and Kasi Wells. Alumnus Ryan Daudistel (BSCE '08) who was one of the founders of the Steel Bridge Team at SU was the technical advisor.
