CSC looks to enter FLW Collegiate National Fishing Championship

Chadron State College is attempting to put together teams for the FLW College Fishing Tournament for the 2011 Spring season.

“I’m hoping that with enough sponsor support, we can participate in regional tournaments as well to help prepare for the national championship series,” CSC Assistant Professor, Jeff Morgan said.

Morgan is also the faculty sponsor of the Outdoor Club and is a former guide and fly-fishing writer.

The National Guard Collegiate Bass Fishing Championships for the 2011 spring season will have four qualifying tournament series for each region, and the top five teams win prizes for their club and school at every National Guard FLW College Fishing event.

The school can enter one tournament, with a two-person team, and with 40 schools per tournament.

The top five schools in each qualifier go to regionals and receive between $1,500 – $5,000 scholarship, depending on how each team places.

The regional tournament has 20 schools, with the top 5 go to nationals and receive between $5000 – 25,000 scholarship depending on how each team places.

In the National Championship, the top five schools receive between $15,000-$100,000 scholarship depending on how each team places.

“I’m strongly encouraging women to participate in the tournament team. No single team in our region has a female member fishing in regional qualifiers, and there are no gender boundaries that give men an inherent advantage over women,” Morgan said.

Some advantages when fishing in a National Guard FLW College Fishing event is free use of a furnished top-of-the-line bass boat, no fee to register, a travel allowance to cover travel expenses, and receiving fishing tips from professional anglers.

“With the regional and national championships televised nationally, this could be a good opportunity to recruit students from outside our region to Chadron State,” Morgan said.

For more information, there will be a meeting at 3 p.m. today in the Scottsbluff room at the Student Center, or contact Jeff Morgan at jmorgan@csc.edu.
