2017 Championship Recap with Tusculum College
Tusculum College is a small Division II school that proved any school can be competitive at the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship. With 191 boats from some of biggest schools in the nation competing this year Tusculum was certainly one of the smallest schools in the field thus they had a lot to prove. The team of Nick Hatfield and Corey Neece were the leaders after day one landing an impressive five fish limit of Pickwick bass weighing in at 23.92 pounds. They followed that up with another impressive limit on day two, 16.15 pounds, and settled into 3rd place overall for the event with 40.07 pounds.
Nick Hatfield & Corey Neece spoke to us after the event about how their day 2 on-the-water-went and their thoughts on their third place finish after leading day 1.
