ASU Bass Club Team Third at Amistad Tournament
Two Angelo State University Bass Club members placed third and collected $4,000 Saturday in the National Guard FLW College Fishing Texas Division Tournament on Lake Amistad near Del Rio.
Austin Adcock of Leander and Josh Seale of Breckenridge landed five bass totaling 15 lbs., 12 oz., to win the prize which will be split evenly between the ASU Bass Club and the university.
Adcock and Seale placed fifth in another National Guard-sponsored tournament in March and have qualified for the Texas Regional Championship, Nov. 14-16 at the Grand Ecore Recreation Area in Natchitoches, La. The event will be televised in San Angelo on Versus, SuddenLink channel 47.
Full-time students enrolled in four-year colleges or universities are eligible to participate in the FLW College Fishing series, which is organized into five geographical divisions. Schools can send two-person teams to each of four qualifying events in their division.
The three-day FLW National Guard College Fishing National Championship is held annually in early March with the top five teams in each region competing.
