The Lenoir City High School Bass Club kicked off the 2019-20 fishing season with a bang Saturday when three duos finished in the top 20 in the Tennessee Bass Nation Southeast Region tournament on Watts Bar Lake.

“It went pretty well,” Allen Woods, Bass Club coach, said. “Fishing was tough. It only took 12 pounds to win, but I think it’s cool to see … this is what I preach to my kids, but you can have one team win everything from your school’s team, but to show you are a team as far as everybody involved, if you’ve got three teams in the top 20, that’s what I like to see rather than one team finishing in the top 10 and everybody finishing in the bottom. I’m well pleased with the way we finished Saturday.”
