Emily Riihl of New Richland, is part of Dordt College's concrete canoe team working to create the college's canoe for the third year in a row. Riihl, a junior majoring in engineering, is serving as the captain of the paddling team as well as member of the mix design and administration committees.

The 200-pound canoe will be entered into the annual Concrete Canoe Competition held by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The regional competition is slated for Friday and Saturday, April 19 and 20, at the University of Minnesota-Mankato. Dordt's 2012 Kernel placed third regionally and the 2011 Cannon took fifth.
