2012 Elite Series Green Bay Challenge Lake Michigan - Green Bay, WI, Jun 28 - Jul 1, 2012

Niggemeyer on the rise

10:38 am CDT, Jul 1, 2012 | By Steve Wright

James Niggemeyer of Van, Texas, is a good example of the day-to-day volatility in the standings at the Green Bay Challenge.

 

Some precipitous drops have been noted, like Todd Faircloth's fall from third to 36th on Day Two, and Yusuke Miyasaki's plunge from ninth to 40th on Day Three.

 

But for every fall there must be a rise in this zero-sum game.

 

Niggemeyer jumped from 19th into ninth place Saturday. And Niggemeyer's rise may not be over. BASSTrakk currently shows him with a 15-pound limit that has him in third place today.

 

A finish in the Top 6 would be his best on the Elite Series, where he's made Sunday's Top 12 five times previously and finished as high as seventh twice.
