Bass Fishing Fairs Well at Nationals

The PSC Bass Fishing team ended up with a 77th place finish out of 180 boats at the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Nationals in Florence, Alabama. Taylor West and Jon Hermann performed at a high level at Pickwick Lake, which is one of the best bass Fisheries in the country. With hot and humid weather, the Senior and Junior competed against NCAA Division I schools and was able to finish well above the middle.

"The travel was far, the sleep was minimal, the weather was borderline unbearable, and they both (West and Hermann) took the challenge head on. 3 days of hot and humid practices on unfamiliar waters was a challenge for sure, but they came off the water each day with a smile," said Coach Nick Papa.
