Nice catch

The Kaufman fishing team posted a second place overall in the team division at Lake Fork on Nov. 10, missing first place by mere ounces to Royce City.

 “We really needed this finish with half of the teams placing in the top 30 in a field of 200 in the Central Division of the Texas High School Bass Association,” said Coach Steve Holland. “This year had been tough everywhere we have fished with poor bass catches due to heavy rains in November.”

The Kaufman team needed these angler points badly with their sights set on the regional championship later this spring at Lake Ray Hubbard.

Tied for 4th was the team of Ethan Thurston and Cooper Garrison, 9th place went to Brianna Glasgow and Michelle Kistler, and 18th place went to current Anglers of the Year Gavin Thompson and Michael Andrus. The senior team of Cody Jones and Jake Throneberry placed 23rd. Jep Shelton and Cody Moore finished 27th.

The Kaufman Fishing Team will have a Panda Express fundraiser on Dec. 22. Be sure to mention the Kaufman team when ordering.
