Loudon High bass team growing

LHS Bass Club starting to have success

After being in existence for nearly three years, the Loudon High School Bass Fishing Club has gradually grown and is expected to make some noise this season.

The club started in October 2017 and featured one duo of Alex Hawkins and Austyn Myers. For the 2020-21 season, the club boasts 16 members and eight boat captains.

Charlie Brown, LHS advanced manufacturing teacher, is head coach.

“We had one team fish our very first tournament, and we went from just having one team in the tournament to now we should be putting in seven or eight, possibly nine boats in them this year,” Brown said. “When I was first handed this, my son loved bass fishing and I had fished in just a handful of bass tournaments in my life. I wasn’t a professional fisherman by no means, but I’ve learned a lot myself since then. Just trying to get these kids out on the river in these tournaments has been a challenge, but it’s come a long way and I’m happy with our progress.”…Full Story
