Park Falls, WI – While winning college bass tournaments often grabs the headlines, within the sport, Team of the Year is the top award. Taking down the title requires consistency; teams acquire points throughout the year based on performances across all three major college fishing leagues: B.A.S.S., FLW and Bass Pro Shops Collegiate Bass Fishing. In order to win Team of the Year, a school can’t stumble.
The bass fishing team at McKendree University has been as consistent as any – placing in the top-10 in Team of the Year standings each of the last five years – but is still yet to prevail. Currently leading the standings, their chances may be better than ever, thanks to a key coaching principle.
