JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Three Campbell County High School Fishing teams have qualified for the Bassmaster High School National Championship which will be held at Lake Hartwell in South Carolina July 27-29. Lake Hartwell sits on the South Carolina-Georgia border about an hour southwest of Greenville, South Carolina.
Teams heading to the national competition are Mac Fritts/Reid Chapman; Gabe St John/Mason Dople and Bryson Dotson/Holden Pistello.
The students qualified for the Bassmaster High School National Championship through the Bass Pro Shops High School series.
CCHS Fishing Teams will compete against other high school anglers from across the country.
CCHS Fishing coach Gabe Keen said it had taken a lot of hard work for these three teams to advance to the national level, and that they would “represent” their county and school well.
“All of these kids have worked hard all year and dedicated many hours on and off the water to put themselves in a position to qualify for the National Championship. I am very proud of them, and it is an honor to have them representing our team and our school at the National level,” Keen said.
