Abbey Harris and Karlee Prevett, two best friends and 8th graders from Maynard High School competed in the Student Angler Federation Bass State Tournament on Lake Darndanelle this weekend and won 2nd place in the Jr High Division!

They held the lead all the way up until the last team weighed in.

This is their first year of competing with this bass trail.

Out of the Jr High and High School teams that competed they were the only 2 female teams!

Karlee has been competitively fishing for 3 years now and this makes Abbey’s 2nd year.

Maynard Jr High Bass Team had 2 teams come into the top 3 spots at this State Tournament, Drew Damon and Casey Lewis followed behind Abbey and Karlee and took 3rd place!

Both girls are proud to represent female bass anglers and want to encourage other girls to get out there and try their hand at bass fishing!
