Collaborating friends earn top-three spots in heavyweight Spaghetti Bridge contest
It came down to a battle between three friends from Lumby at Okanagan College’s 32nd annual Spaghetti Bridge Contest held at the Kelowna campus today.
Grade 7 student Adrian Schartner from Lumby placed first with his bridge weighing 982.6 grams and supporting 275.6 kilograms before spectacularly collapsing in front of cheering friends, peers, teachers and parents. His bridge was the only one to break the 200-kilogram load threshold. Brendan Mattenley placed second with 196.68 kilograms of load, and in third was defending champion James Dessert with 171.83 kilograms.
