Sturgill Named to Bassmaster High School All-State Fishing Team

Fifty-three of the most outstanding high school anglers from across the country have been named to the 2022 Bassmaster High School All-State Fishing Team presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors.

The students were selected for the honor based on their success in bass tournament competition, academic achievement and leadership in conservation and community service.

Among those honored is North Lincoln High School senior Drake Sturgill.  

Drake fished five tournaments last year and made top 10 in one, netting him $946 in prize money as a Strike King Co-Angler.

To be considered for the All-State Fishing Team, a student must have been nominated by a parent, coach, teacher or other school official. Students enrolled in grades 10-12 with a current-year grade point average of 2.5 or higher were eligible.

B.A.S.S. received nearly 400 nominations from across the nation. From these, judges selected 53 student anglers from 34 states to make the All-State Fishing Team. In addition, 40 students received Honorable Mentions recognizing them for their tournament success as well as community service and academic achievement.

Glenn Cale, B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament Manager said, “It’s always impressive to see the accolades of each applicant. Every parent and angler should be very proud of joining the team.”

A second panel of judges will review the nominations of the 53 All-State team members and select the 12 members of the 2022 Bassmaster High School All-American Fishing Team presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors. As in All-State judging, criteria include success in high school fishing tournaments, involvement in conservation efforts and other community service activities.

The 12 finalists will compete in a one-day Bassmaster High School All-American Bass Tournament presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors, which will be held during the 2022 Simms Bassmaster Elite at Lake Fork, scheduled to take place May 19-22 in Quitman, Texas.

Elite Series anglers will serve as teammates and “coaches” of the student anglers in the tournament. The high school standouts will be honored on the main stage at the weigh-in.

What sports are important to you?  We try hard to keep up with high school sports and to recognize the student athletes from local schools. We don't attempt to provide info on professional sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, etc.) or college sports.  We don't report regularly on NASCAR. Most of that info is readily available from other sources.  If there's something you'd like to see us cover (or cover better) let us know.  We depend on coaches, players, parents and other fans to keep us informed about their teams.  We want to report on sports that interest our readers.  

The Lincoln Herald has been providing local news, information about community events, sports scores, the obituaries, and more--for FREE--since 2012.
