Congratulations to the GeoWall team who placed 1st at the ASCE Geo-Institute 2013 National GeoChallenge down in San Diego this Monday, March 4th!  This has been the second straight year that Cal Poly Pomona’s GeoWall team has taken home the prestigious Atterberg Cup trophy at Nationals, and they hope to keep the tradition alive in upcoming years.  Please come out to root the team on as they compete again at PSWC 2013 at USC, where they hope to hold their top standing.  Way to go GeoWall team!
