Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - High School Bass Fishing Teams are being started all across the United States advancing the sport of bass fishing all the way to a high school national championship. The teams compete for their share of available scholarship money made available by the FLW Student Bass Angler Federation, which sanctions the high school teams.  

In our area, there are several high schools that already have teams. These include Soddy Daisy, Rhea County, Grundy County, and Silverdale Baptist Academy (SBA), and East Hamilton.

Silverdale Baptist Academy, coached by veteran pro angler Brent Brady, has posted a 17 member team for the 2014- 2015  season. Brent says, "it is our goal to give these kids a chance to get and on the lake and to develop enthusiasm for the outdoors while teaching kids the skills of bass fishing on a competitive level and re-enforcing the ethics of  sportsmanship.
