SENECA, S.C. – The Kingman Academy/Sandra Day O’Connor High School team of Frankie Mueller and Shane Edgar won the FLW High School Fishing National Championship on Lake Keowee on Saturday with a catch of 9 pounds, 13 ounces. The team, which won the Western Conference Championship to qualify for nationals, won $5,000 in tuition prizes.

Rounding out the top five finalists:

Based on the highly successful 2009 launch of FLW College Fishing, which now enjoys participation by more than 600 colleges and universities nationwide, FLW and The Bass Federation (TBF) joined forces in 2011 to launch the first national High School Fishing program. By offering a high school bass fishing state championship in every state in the continental United States plus the province of Ontario, FLW and TBF are recruiting a record number of youth to the sport. Each year FLW and TBF operate more than 50 High School Fishing tournaments under the Student Angler Federation (SAF) umbrella, including opens, conference championships and a national championship that awards a $10,000 scholarship ($5,000 per student) to the winning two-angler team.

High School fishing is open to all students grades nine through 12. Each team of two students and their “coach,” who provides and operates their boat during competition, are invited to compete in a state championship. The top 10 percent of each state championship field then advances to a conference championship, and the top 10 percent of each conference championship field advances to the High School Fishing National Championship. Each member of the winning team at the 2014 High School Fishing National Championship received $5,000 to help cover tuition at the university of their choice.
