For the past few years we have been bettering our team with new mix designs, canoe practice, and innovating new methods for casting the canoe mold! Last year the team took second place in regionals and was entered into the wildcard drawing for nationals in Florida. Sadly we did not make it, but this year we are still shooting for the top!
