2012 Southeast Conference Canoes (19)

The Southeast Conference was hosted by Florida A&M/Florida State (Great job guys!).  The "Gators" from the University of Florida won the concrete canoe competition in a field of nineteen entries.  Team UAH (Alabama-Huntsville) placed second followed by Florida A&M/Florida State (the competition host) in third.

The University of Florida will field "Vindigator."

The Gators will be making their eighth national appearance (statistics).

Team UAH went into Tallahassee with a slight advantage by winning the design report category but Florida evened the score early on by winning the product category.  The Gators earned critical delta points on Friday by winning the presentation category and cased their win on Saturday by sweeping the races.  UAH and Florida Tech gave Florida a run for their money on the pond... giving Tech the points that they needed to finish fourth overall. Florida A&M/Florida State also posed a challenge to the Gators by placing second in the women's endurance race (Way to go ladies!).

On another note... The crowd of nearly 1000 students and supporters went wild as the University of Puerto Rico claimed their first overall Southeast conference title by earning the most points in multiple events.   Puerto Rico finished an impressive fifth in the concrete canoe competition (see below).

Until the nationals are over in June, I think that I speak for all of the concrete canoe contestants in the Southeast... "I wish I was a Florida Gator!  Good luck in scoring a top five finish in Reno.  We'll see you next year in Miami." ... jag
