The duo of Grant Pavelka and Tyler Rowland brought a 5 bass limit of fish to the Lewis and Clark Lake weigh-in site on Saturday that weighed in at 9.86 lbs. to capture the Nebraska SAF High School State Championship. They edged out Reese Cudaback and Eli Legget from Millard North High School who had three fish that weighed in at 5.84 lbs. to claim the runner-up spot. Rounding out the top three was the duo of Zane Leibhert and Brent Bergman from Lincoln County who also had three fish that weighed in at 4.86lbs.
Pavelka and Rowland will represent the state of Nebraska at the Southern Conference Regional event in Pine Bluff Arkansas in October. There they will attempt to qualify for the TBF/FLW High School National Championship next spring and a $10,000 college scholarship to the school of their choice.
Special thanks goes out to Larry Pape and the Nebraska Game and Parks staff and volunteers for hosting the event once again this year.
