Alex Lawliss and Perry Marvin brought in a five bass limit weighing 17.55 pounds to win the TBF/FLW Northern Conference Regional Championship on Lake Champlain in Ticonderoga, N.Y. The pair earned the championship titles, trophies and a slot in the TBF/FLW High School National Championship to be held next Spring.
Lawless and Marvin from Peru High School in New York slipped by Dylan Hartman and Ryan DeGraw from New Jersey who also had limited that weighed 16.30 pounds to claim the runner-up spot. Rounding out the top three was the team of Landon Siggers and Jacob Johnson from Tunstal High School in Virginia. They had a limit of bass weighing 15.85 pounds.
The top 10 percent from each TBF/FLW state championship field and the top three teams from each of the seven TBF/FLW Opens advance to a Conference Championship event. The top 10 percent of each conference championship field will then advance to the High School Fishing National Championship in the spring of 2017. The High School Fishing national champions will each receive a $5,000 scholarship to the school of their choice.
In addition to the state, conference and national championship events all high school anglers nationwide qualify for the world’s largest high school fishing standalone, championship event, the High School Fishing World Finals with over $60,000 in scholarships and prizes up for grabs.
