Saturday the BC Fishing team attended their first tournament of the 2015-2016 SETX high school fishing season. The tournament was held on beautiful lake Sam Rayburn. BC Fishing had an exceptional day on the water. The team competed against 490 other high school teams from all over the state. This was largest high school fishing tournament ever held as the SETX Highschool Fishing Association again shattered it’s own record.
Bridge City brought 28 teams to the lake and had six teams finish in the top 50, while all but three teams weighed in fish. Definitely something to be proud of.
BC’s top finishers were newcomers Ky Terrell and Riley Pipps with an impressive 12th place. They brought to the scales a five fish limit weighing 14.83 pounds. It was a great showing on their first tournament with BC Fishing. BC was also able to expand to include eighth graders this year with the help of Mrs. Lydia Gonzales, Principal, and her team at BCMS. BC Fishing are now 60 members strong and able to give the students of Bridge City ISD one more way to be a part of something great.
