TR Anglers Win State Championship And Advance To June Nationals In Alabama
Congratulations to Hunter Dill and Austin Short on winning the TBF/SAF/MLF State Championship on Lake Hartwell this past Saturday (February 5th).
They weighed in a total of five fish for total of 14 pounds. They Won by 2 1/2 pounds over second place finisher Crescent High School.
Dill and Short are now qualified to fish in the Nationals that will take place this June in Alabama at Lake Pickwick. Congratulations to Hunter Dill and Austin Short.
High School teams from across South Carolina converged on Lake Hartwell to compete for the title of State Champions
for 2022. Registration was held at the Greenville Cabela’s and the anglers were able to stock up on all their favorite bait and tackle before the event began. As Mother Nature usually does, prolonged rain covered the area several days before the event and then the cooler than normal temperatures made it quite brisk for Saturday morning.
But by the end of the day, the temperatures had climbed to the upper forties and the anglers were able to catch several fish during the last few hours of the event. The Travelers Rest team of Hunter Dill and Austin Short brought a total of 14-00 pounds to the scales as the first team to weigh and never looked back.
