Lakeside fishing team having good year

Lakeside fishing team making a splash

It may not get the attention that other teams get at Lakeside, but the school’s bass fishing team is making waves across the country.

The team had a strong year last season, winning six of the 11 tournaments it entered with 21 pairings that finished in the top five.

Goss and Martin have been fishing with the team for the past four years, but it was Martin who helped get the team started.

“Cole had mentioned to me that we needed a fishing team,” said Britani Martin, Cole’s mother. “He’s always loved to fish. He’s fished with his dad, but mainly with his pop (Randy Teale) since he was probably 3. After over and over him nagging me about schools having fishing teams and Lakeside needed one — at the time, Lakeside had a trap shooting team, and it was more like a club separate — so when I looked into it, they said, basically, to have a team that’s sanctioned with the organizations, you just basically needed four kids.”…Full Story and Photos
