TBF along with FLW held the High School Southern Conference Championship on Saturday in conjunction with the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference Championship. Teams from across the region were competing and Matt Neiburg and Zach Madsen, both of Blaire, Neb., representing Blair High School, won the tournament, which was also held on Lake Dardanelle, with a five-bass limit weighing 15-0.

The team beat their closest competitor, Little Axe High School/Depew High School, by 2 pounds.

Blair High School“We caught them on Senkos, and it was tough,” said Madsen, a senior at Blair. “We caught two right away and then we caught two more.”

“We went to a spot and I threw a Senko and had a good one on, and we just kept on throwing that Senko,” said Neiburg, a senior at Blair. We were told to keep throwing it and it might only be a fish an hour, but it might also get it done.”

Final High School results:

1st: Blair High School – Matt Neiburg and Zach Madsen, both of Blair, Neb., five bass, 15-0

2nd: Little Axe High School/Depew High School – Trevor Yates, Norman, Okla., and Wyatt Smith, Depew, Okla., five bass, 13-0

3rd: Greenbrier High School – Devin Baxley, North Little Rock, Ark., and T.J. Miller, Greenbrier, Ark., four bass, 9-2

4th: Corrigan-Camden High School – Clay Nash and Wyatt Frankens, both of Corrigan, Texas, two bass, 4-10

5th: Louisiana SAF – Hunter Venable and Jude Boudreaux, both of Houma, La., two bass, 4-9

High School Fishing Tournaments are open to all ninth, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students, including home schooled students that are members of the Student Angler Federation. The winning team from each state championship advances to a High School Fishing Conference Championship. Boats are provided upon request at all Conference Championships. The winning team from each Conference Championship will receive trophies and commemorative jerseys, and advance to the 2013 High School Fishing National Championship, held in conjunction with the National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship in the spring.

Each member of the winning National High School Fishing Championship team will receive a $5,000 scholarship to use at the University of their choice. Teams participating in the conference championships and National Championship will also receive a travel allowance to help offset their expenses.
