18- April 6, 2017 Your HometownNewspaper News Outlook in By Cecil Lawson KyNewsGroup cecil@kynewsgroup.com Bath County High School's Bass Fishing Team has hit the lake running this spring season and has set its sights on bigger fish. Coach Dewayne Car- penter was proud when he took his team to the Boyle County Open on Saturday, March 25, for their first tournament and had three of their boats with fish to weigh in. But he was ecstatic when one of his young angler teams, Bryce Fryman and Griffin Fraley, placed 7th in the Student Angler Federa- tion State Tournament, also held at Lake Cumberland last Saturday. "I expected we were go- ing to go and make a good showing," Carpenter said, "But for a first year team this is really big." Fryman had a 4 lb. bass, and the Fryman-Griffin team had a sack weight of 13.1 pounds for 7th place. They will be moving along with 18 other qualify- hag teams to compete at the National SAF Tournament at Pickwick Lake, Alabama, during the last week of June. "Fo win that would be like winning a Bassmaster Tour- nament," Carpenter said. The high school's bass fishing team is still early into its first season after having been organized last fall.
