Local Students are Fishing for the National Title!
When you think high school sports you probably think baseball, basketball or soccer. Most people don't realize there are fishing programs in our local high schools!
Meet Jordan Gregory, a Junior from Richland High and Blake Williams a Sophmore from Connell, they recently won the high school state championship for TBF (The Bass Federation) and took second place in the B.A.S.S Federation State Championship!
Next up, NATIONALS!! They are now qualified to fish in the National Tournaments for both events, one is in Alabama in June and the other will be held in Tennessee in August.
However getting to the National competitions isn't free, so they are doing some fundraising and could use your help! They are selling raffle tickets for a chance to win fishing gear prizes (a $300 value, courtesy of Three Rivers Tackle). Tickets are just $5 each or five for $20, if you are interested in supporting these boys and helping them get to Nationals you can contact Jordan Gregory on his Facebook messenger by clicking HERE or calling Jordan at 509-947-6533! Good luck boys! KORD is rooting for your fishing success!
