Fishing - Thu, Apr. 18, 2013
Georgetown College's fishing team has reeled in another big weekend, snagging the top spot in the rankings once again.
The Tigers' top 5 finish in the College B.A.S.S. Eastern Regional shot them back into the No. 1 ranking with a tournament this weekend that could help solidify that spot before other regional tournaments take place.
Nick and Mike Huff are heading to the FLW National Championships, while Clay Elliot, Shawn Combs, John Hunter and Vincent Timperio will be competing in the ACA Collegiate Bass Fishing Open.
Georgetown's club team took the top spot back in the fall and have stayed in the hunt all season with strong finishes in the FLW College Fishing, Bluegrass Battle and Collegiate Big Bass Bash.
The top 5 teams in the rankings are separated by only 80 points, but GC is the only one of those schools fishing in two events this weekend. It's an aggressive move which may pay off with the Orange & Black staying on top.
