Two teams representing the ASU Bass Anglers Club finished in the top four and claimed prize money at the Yeti FLW College Fishing Southern Conference Tournament at Lake Sam Rayburn just north of Beaumont in February 2017.
ASU team members Will Curlee of Round Rock and Ty Johnson of Bernet, Ill., placed second out of 132 two-person teams from more than 30 other universities and won $1,000. They registered five bass weighing a total of 20 pounds, 10 ounces. Also for ASU, Nathan Ahle of Plano and Nolan Osmanski of San Angelo finished in fourth place and won $500. Their five-bass weight total was 18 pounds, 3 ounces. By finishing in the top 10, both ASU teams qualified for the 2018 FLW College Fishing National Championship Tournament next summer at a date and place to be determined.
