Marble Falls LBJ Tournament Results for MFHS Fishing Team – Sept. 10th

What a fabulous event!  We had 19 student anglers compete on 9 boats captained by Gary Simmank, Dusty Harkins, Bryan Ellis, Bill Flanary, Terry White, Collin Edwards, Dale Schmidt, Robert Nelson and a great surprise when Angler of the Year last season, Logan Clark, drove in from Angelo State to help us out!

Hunter McNeese and Austin Ellis both weighed in 7 lbs 5 oz but Hunter was awarded 1st place since he also had BIG BASS at 4 lbs 12 oz. Timothy Tucker came in 3rd with 3lbs 1oz. Other students weighing in fish were:

Collin  Edwards     2 lbs 15 oz

Shilo Nelson         2 lbs  9 oz

Trace Farley         2 lbs  3.5 oz

Sam Kohutek        1 lb 7 oz

Chris Hooten         1 lb 3 oz

A HUGE thank you goes out to LeeAnne Harkins and Tina Simmank for providing a BBQ lunch for all the anglers, captains and families. Once again, we can’t do any of this without the support of our Sponsors and Boat Captains who give generously of their time and resources to get these students out on the water!  We are hoping that our current sponsors will renew their support for the upcoming year so that we can continue to send our team to tournaments in our custom fishing jerseys and hats and provide the ability to travel outside of the Highland Lakes to compete at the state and national levels.  Our current sponsors are:

Bellwether Company (Darin Gray)

River City Grille/Spicewood General Store (Paul Brady)

Edwards Risk Mgmt (Rick Edwards)

Northwinds Construction (Wayne Robinson)

Galloway Insurance (Kyle Stripling) – renewed

Hill Country Recycling

Culprit Baits

Strike King Lures (new)
