Chase Hux and Matt Nicholas representing New Braunfels Christian Academy seized a repeat victory with back to back championship wins at 2016 FAN HS Championship. They brought in a 5 bass limit weighing 17.36lbs, including the Kistler big bass of the event at 7.04 pounds earning the first place $3000.00 Scholarship award. Captain Buck also won the Academy Captain Incentive award of a $100 Academy Gift Card.
After a week of heavy rains Lake Travis would exceed its full pool status for the first time in five years creating some last minute changes to the launch and weigh in logistics for FAN Staff; however, the 64 student anglers and their captains were released to a beautiful cool spring morning with anticipation and excitement for a chance to be the 2016 FAN HS Champions. This year FAN held a year end banquet directly after the weigh in, the teams would weigh their catch and results would be kept secret until the banquet. Anglers, captains and their family were treated to a Fajita meal catered by Shore Club at Volente Beach, and we were blessed with the talented performance of Abbi Gass from Lake Travis HS Bass Team. There were plenty of door prizes, a raffle and a silent auction offering prizes from local businesses.
