The Kaufman fishing team took on cold temperatures in the Texas High School Bass Association event at lake Tawakoni last month. Of the 272 teams that competed, 220 returned with no fish.
However, the team of Ethan Thurston and Cooper Garrison weight in two fish for 7.22 pounds which was good for a 13th place finish giving them enough points to make it to regionals. The team of Brianna Glasgow and Mishell Kistler placed in the top 25 to assure themselves the Angler of the Year title for the Kaufman Fishing Team. Their single five-pound bass pushed them ahead of Michael Andrus and Gavin Thompson who placed second in the AOY race. The teams of Cody Jones and Jake Throneberry, Jaxen Perrin and Jerod Hudson and Clayton Tackel and Jacob Covey will also represent Kaufman at the regional competition at Lake Ray Hubbard this month.
