CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The first annual Forgotten Child Fund High School Crappie Tournament was held on Chickamauga Lake Saturday, March 21, 2015. This event was sponsored by the Chattanooga Crappie Club and hosted by Sale Creek High School to help the Forgotten Child Fund collect toys for families who need a little help providing Christmas to their children.

Thirty teams representing four different area High Schools participated in this year's inaugural event. Participating schools were Soddy Daisy, Sale Creek, Chattanooga Central and Rhea County

The team of Drew Gunter and Chase Watson representing Rhea County took first place in the tournament with a seven fish limit weighing 9 pounds 9 ounces.


Finishing in second place was the Rhea County team of Macky McCrary and Jackson Lytle with seven fish weighing 9 pounds 5 ounces. Macky and Jackson also won Big Fish of the tournament with a giant crappie weighing 1 pound 13 ounces.

Third place went to Kaleb James and Blake Morgan from Sale Creek High School with seven fish weighing 8 pounds 7 ounces.
