The West/Heritage Bass Fishing Team won State!
On to Nationals!
The West/Heritage co-op Bass Fishing Team competed at State, held June 28th on Lake Minnetonka with a total of 67 teams. Seth Erickson (senior) and his partner took 1st place with a total weight of 14.63 lbs., and Cole Abbott (senior) and his partner took 4th place with a total weight of 14.28 lbs. Both teams will advance to the Bassmaster High School National Championship at Lake Chickamauga in Dayton, TN, later this month where approximately 275 teams are expected to compete for the national title. These teams are the best of 13,000 Bassmaster high school members nationwide.
It is fitting that the team achieved this reward as this fishing team was started by Cole Abbott; both he and Seth graduated this year. Congratulations and thanks to the West coach Jeff Abbott and Mike Liberato, who volunteered his time and resources as the team’s boat captain.
