PORT ANGELES – The Peninsula College Advanced Manufacturing/Composites program sent three student teams to compete in an international Student Bridge Competition down in Long Beach California Wednesday, and the results are in.

Students compete by building 24-inch long carbon fiber model bridges, which must hold at least 9,000 lbs.

With over 70 teams taking part from the USA, Canada, Mexico, and China, the Pirates, the only two-year school there, took third place.  College Representative Kari Desser says the students had a lot of support from local companies CRTC and ACTI:
