The win also earned them an automatic spot into the Bassmaster High School National Championship later this year

“We found the winning area in practice the day before the tournament and felt like it held some quality fish. It still was a grind for us all day with most of our fish coming late in the day on rattle baits and jerkbaits”, said Ingleburger

Finishing in second place was the team of Eli Mitchell and Tyler Lusk from Soddy Daisy High School with a five bass limit weighing 25.56 pounds.

Roane County High School's Holly White won the Big Fish award with a giant 9.03 pound Chickamauga bass. Holly claimed a new Lowrance Gen 3 HDS7 Touch Chartplotter for her efforts valued at $1,400.
