George, a junior business management major from San Angelo, and Seale, a senior accounting student from Breckenridge, caught 14 bass during the three-day tournament with a total weight of 32 pounds, 9 ounces. Their fifth-place purse of $3,000 will be split between the Bass Anglers club and the ASU general scholarship fund.
The ASU duo was within 7 ounces of the second-day leaders after landing 10 bass weighing a cumulative total of 28 pounds, 1 ounce during the first two days of the tournament. Twenty-five collegiate teams competed at the national tournament after qualifying through regional tournaments.
