We have a winner in the National Concrete Canoe competition.

The News on 6 told you last week about the contest in Stillwater.

The team from the University of Wisconsin-Madison walked away with the school's fourth straight title. Teams put their boats through aesthetic, presentation and swamping tests on Thursday.

There were technical presentations Friday, and a series of races on Boomer Lake Saturday.

Wisconsin's canoe beat 22 other entries from engineering schools in the US and Canada.

OSU finished 11th and OU came in at 16.
