Is your team involved in any charity work?  If so, tell us a little about it

Yes, we do 2 car washes every season – Breast Cancer Awareness for Advent Health, and Back the Blue carwash for our county’s fallen officers.

Tell us anything else you’d like for us to know about your bass fishing team, or school:

Our anglers run the club.  We have an Angler Executive Board which consists of a President, VP, Secretary and Treasurer.  We also have committees (tournament, fundraising, captain, sponsorship, etc.), and we have an adult board to help guide the angler board in the right direction.  We let them run the meetings, tournaments, events – and discuss any issues that arise and problem-solve.  Our anglers compete for points and at the end of the season our top five teams will receive a scholarship.  Two of our anglers have gone to college on fishing scholarships (this is our main goal) – we have a female angler at SCAD and a male angler at Bethel University, both on the fishing team!
