2016 Ohio BASS Nation High School Championship
Urbana Ohio - The top two finishing High School teams from the Ohio BASS Nation High School Championship, and the top team from the Ohio BASS Nation Youth State Championship will be heading to the Costa Bassmaster High School / Junior National Championship on August 1-6 at Kentucky Lake and Carroll County Lake in Kentucky.
The state championship was held May 14th and 15th at Indian Lake, Lakeview, Ohio. It drew 21 teams of high school and junior anglers.
"We basically run two tournaments at that event with the high school anglers and the junior anglers," said Al Evans, Ohio B.A.S.S. Nation Youth Director.
Buckeye State Student Anglers, Garrett Prenger (a student at Jackson Center High School), and Zach Henry (a student at Mechanicsburg High School), won the High School competition. Prenger and Henry caught 10 bass weighing 17.30 pounds. Fred Rostorfer coached their winning team.
Second-place finishers, Colton Didion and John Hutson, members of the Hartley Hawgs, were coached Brian Vogelsang. Didion and Hutson caught 10 bass totaling 17.14 pounds.
"The fishing was awesome," Evans said, "I have helped run junior tournaments since 2010 and we have never had a State Championship where so many kids caught their limits."
In the Junior Competition, S.S.Minnows, Jake Rossi and Charles Jones won the event with eight fish weighing 11.06 pounds. Rossi and Jones coached by Mel DeJarnette qualified for the Junior Bassmaster Championship on Carroll County Lake in Kentucky.
Evans concluded, “With help from Cabelas, Field and Stream, my wife, Joann, and members of the Columbus Bassmasters, we were able to present a first rate event. Good luck to the teams moving on to Costa Bassmasters High School Championship and the Junior Bassmaster Championship.”
