RHS bass fishing qualifies for state
Sports Editor

For the fourth time in the past 10 years, Robinson High School has qualified a team for the state bass fishing finals.

Robinson's bass fishing team of Kade Lassen and Jason Meeks - with Thomas Brown as the alternate - qualified for the state tournament by finishing third at the IHSA Sectional held at Forbes State Park Lake in Kinmundy Friday (May 4).

The pair of RHS anglers caught four fish during the Sectional meet, which was the most of any team entered. The total weight of their four fish was 6.75 pounds, which placed them behind only Teutopolis (14.8 pounds) and Centralia (8.25 pounds) out of the 18 teams that caught fish.

Since they started participating, Robinson has had a decent amount of success in bass fishing, as this marks the fourth time in 10 years that Robinson - who is coached by Tim Nolen and Mike Buchanan - has had a team qualify for state.

Included in that success is a record for biggest bass caught, which is held by Connor Grffin, who reeled in the 7.4-pound bass during the 2014 tournament. That catch is also the largest largemouth bass ever caught on Carlyle Lake.

Lassen and Meeks will compete at this year's state meet on Carlyle Lake May 18-19.
