Oregon high school teams battled it out on Tenmile Lake, Saturday, May 14th. The teams faced low hanging rain clouds and wind, with temperatures in the low 50’s for a good portion of the day. So rain gear and warm clothes were a must! All the teams put in a maximum effort right up to the 3:00pm weigh in time. When all the bags had been weighed, the team of Shane Long and Sawyer Strong with five fish weighing 19-38 and big bass of 5-68 took the win and title of 2022 Oregon State Champions.
