The team competed against 13 other schools in Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

"We actually take our canoes and race them. There is various races that we have. There is three races. There is a men's sprint, females sprint. It's a 200 meter course and there is a 600 meter endurance," said Brandon Bartlett, Fairmont State junior.
