Georgetown College made official what has already been in the works for years. Shawn Combs, a Cynthiana, Ky. native, came to the nearby prestigious institute four years ago as an untraditional student and joined the bass fishing club team. He quickly became a well-known face on campus and one of the team's top fishers.
Upon graduation, he was not ready to leave behind what he had molded through recruiting and building for four seasons. Recently, Combs and GC director of athletics Brian Evans discussed the situation and came to a decision that Combs would take over the fishing program as its first official head coach.
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.
By virtue of its fifth-place finish in the Central Conference competition this past weekend, the Georgetown College team has taken over the No. 1 spot in the School of the Year Program of the Boat U.S. Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Series.
Georgetown College stands atop more than 160 bass fishing teams representing colleges and universities across the country. The rest of the current Top 10 is headed by No. 2 Indiana University, followed by Winona State (MN), Murray State (KY), Oklahoma State University, Auburn University, University of Alabama, Arkansas University, Virginia Tech and Henderson State (AR).
The Georgetown College team of cousins Nick Huff and Mike Huff came in fifth overall with a three day total weight of 32 pounds, 13 ounces (15 bass) in the 2012 National Guard FLW College Fishing Central Conference Championship held this past weekend (Sept. 6-8) at Carlyle Lake, Carlyle, Illinois.
Officials say to make a good team in fishing usually it helps to understand how the other guy thinks and fishes. For the two Huff cousins this comes very naturally. They each are 22-years-old, are seniors in communication and grew up less than 100 yards from each other.Georgetown was the only team that made the cut which was focused on an entirely different pattern. While most schools followed the fish into the flooded grass and wood, Nick and Mike focused on rock banks.
