State Bound

Corbin, North and South Laurel turn in impressive efforts at Region 3 tourney

CORBIN —  

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

LAKE CUMBERLAND — Tri-County high school teams fared well at this past weekend’s Region 3 Bass Fishing Tournament.

The Corbin High School Bass Fishing program will be sending three teams to the KHSAA State Bash Fishing Tournament, which will be held on April 26-27 at Kentucky Lake, while South Laurel will be sending two teams and North Laurel will be sending one.

Corbin had a successful day at the lake, as the teams of Morgan Boggs and Tanner Jordan along with Matt Brown and Dylan Adams and Marcus Davis and Pierce Bishop will be advancing to the state.

South Laurel’s Wesley Baker and Wes Ball will be making the trip to the state tournament along with Austin Turner and Lucas Powell. North Laurel will be sending one team to the state tournament with Connor McKinney and Dustin Chesnut clinching a spot.

“The weather could not have been better with light winds and warm temperatures,” Corbin coach Michael Ball said. “Despite the pleasant weather, the student anglers were faced with several tough conditions.

“First the lake level was on the rise, thus keeping water temperature low and causing the Bass to scatter out,” he added. “Also the tournament was held the day after the BFL (Bass Fishing League) Mountain Division Tournament was held. So the kids have to fish behind 400 of the best bass fishermen in the country. Despite these hardships, the kids had a good showing.”

Corbin’s Boggs and Turned placed second overall with a bass that weighed 5lb and 14oz. The duo also won the Big Fish Trophy by catching a 4lb largemouth bass.

Brown and Adams turned in a fifth place effort with two bass that combined to weigh 4lbs and 11oz.

Davis and Bishop finished 14th and captured a bass that weighed 4lbs and 11oz.

Seth Botner and Zach Tye finished 15th place with a bass that weighed 1lb and 13oz.

North Laurel’s McKinney and Chesnut placed seventh with a bass weighing 3lbs and 11oz while South Laurel’s Baker and Ball turned in a ninth place effort (caught two bass that combined to weigh 3lbs and 5oz) while teammates Turner and Powell finished 11th with a bass weighing in at 2lbs and 14 oz.
