Filed under: Sports |

The Patriot Bass Team reeled in six pounds, 12 ounces to finish in 16th place on Saturday at Toledo Bend Lake to qualify for the 2013 FLW College Fishing Southern Conference Invitational.  The DBU Bass Team of Sophomores Trent Newman and Jacob Sepeda net four fish on Saturday to earn their berth to the Invitational, a school and program milestone.

“It was tough out there, we did all we could to battle the elements,” shared Sepeda.  “We are humbled and excited at the opportunity to fish in the Southern Conference Invitational in October,” added Sepeda.

After qualifying for two national championships in just the first year of the program’s existence last year, the Team will look to add another National Championship berth later this fall (FLW College Circuit).  “I couldn’t be more proud of the guys as they have worked very hard both on and off the water to come this far,” shared Coach Scott Darragh.

The Patriot Bass will be back in action March 8-9, as they compete in the 2013 B.A.S.S. Regional Qualifier on Lake Amistad and will look to qualify for their second consecutive B.A.S.S. National Championship.
