TFS student-anglers head to KBF National Championship

The Tallulah Falls School bass fishing team ended a second strong season at the state championship at Lake Eufaula with six student-anglers competing in the event.

Qualifying for state were high school division team members Marshall Harrelson of Clarkesville, Marshall Williams, Caleb Griffis and Caden Griffis of Martin and junior division team members Molly Mitchell and Jacob Mitchell of Cornelia.

Two of the student-anglers, Marshall Harrelson and Marshall Williams will travel to Paris, Tennessee in August to fish in the national championship tournament, according to captain Russell Williams.

The angling pair qualified to compete for the Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster High School Series National Championship three months ago, finishing ninth in a field of 145 teams launching out of South Carolina on Lake Hartwell at a national open event.  

“They now will get to see how their fishing skills and abilities stack up against the country’s best high school anglers at Kentucky Lake,” Williams said. “We are looking forward to the challenge and the privilege to represent TFS while we compete for a national championship.”
