Although they faced a tough, wet, cold, windy day on the lake, the Redbird anglers fared well at the Mid Illini Bass Fishing Tournament. The varsity team of Kevin Barker and Owen Clelland finished in 2nd place, and Barker had the big fish of the tournament. The big fish tipped the scales at 5 1/2 lbs. Max Alread and Will Garber finished in 5th place with a respectable bag. The JV team of Cooper Mathison, Owen Cabell, Adam Copwer, and Adric Schonert finished 2nd as well. Owen Cabell came through with two nice fish. Overall, the team overcame adversity and represented MTHS well.
