PLYMOUTH, N.C. — Members of the Catawba Valley Community College bass fishing team participated in the North Carolina B.A.S.S. Nation qualifier on the Roanoke River this past weekend.
Every Red Hawk angler brought fish to the scales during the tournament, which was its first of the fall 2021.
Among the Catawba Valley anglers participating in the tournament were Nathan Dellinger, Justin Eggers, Nathan Smith, Lucas Oliver, Caleb Lonca, Hunter Keller, Wes Smith, Daniel Brackett, Brooke Armstrong and Carson Eckard.
Catawba Valley Angler Daniel Brackett was the highest-finishing Red Hawk in fourth place as a co-angler. He can still make the state team if someone who finished in first, second or third place doesn't go to the divisional tournament.
The Red Hawks will be sending two teams to Chickamauga Lake in Tennessee for the Jacob Wheeler Foundation Tournament on Sept. 24-25.
Following that tournament, two Catawba Valley anglers will fish in Lake Dardenelle in Arkansas on Oct. 5-10 before the entire Red Hawk bass fishing team is on the water at Chickamauga Lake on Oct. 22 for a Major League Fishing (MLF) event.
