On August 9th the IBN held the second tournament of the High School Series for 2014–2015 season. The word on the water was that the river was not giving up any big bags. In fact most of the recent tournaments were won with only a couple of fish. The high school teams had their work cut out for them.
Competing in the event were teams from Minooka, Lincoln Way, Naperville, 2 teams from Sandwich, Joliet Central, Saint Laurence and the returning IBN State Championship team from Benton.
The Benton High School team of Dailus Richardson and Trevor McKinney just competed in the Bassmaster High School Championship where they took 2nd place, only missing the top honors by 7 oz. It would be fair to say they are on a roll.
1st Place went to Benton High School, 2nd to Anthony Fazio and Grant Olson from Minooka High School and 3rd was taken by the Sandwich High School team of Logan Beatty and Michael Dobbs.
The next IBN High School tournament will be held on September 7th at Lake Shabbona. For more information about the IBN High School Series visit www.illinoisbassnation.com.
