Written by 

out fishingWestern Carolina University will send two students to the national Bassmaster College Series National Championship following a third place win at a regional bass fishing competition in June. 

Austin Neary and Zachary Hicks, who make up the Bass Cats team, are currently the 14th-ranked collegiate bass fishing team in the country and will compete against other top anglers July 31-Aug. 2 at Lake Chatuge in Georgia. 

“We set goals that may seem farfetched for a first-year program, but we know we can do it with the right attitude,” said Neary, president of WCU’s bass fishing club. “Fishing is all about being positive and having confidence. We have had a string of great finishes this year, and the tournament can’t get here soon enough.”
