The Patriot Bass Fishing Team earned a third place national ranking on Monday according to the latest Association of Collegiate Anglers School of the Year rankings.  After a solid performance at the Cabela’s Big Bass Bash on Table Rock Lake last weekend, the Patriots jumped from the seventh place position, all the way the third – just 56 points of the first place team, Louisiana Monroe University.

“Very proud of our guys, they have worked very hard and have earned these points,” shared Coach Scott Darragh.  “We look forward to a couple of our big tournaments coming up in April and May,” added Darragh.  The Patriot Bass Team has recorded three top-10 finishes in their last three tournaments this spring including the ATU College Fishing Invitational, the B.A.S.S. Central Regional, and most recently, the Boat US ACA Cabela’s Big Bass Bash.

The Patriots will be back in action in late April as they travel to Paris, Tennessee, to compete in the Pepsi Bass Fishing Open on Kentucky Lake.
