Nationally-Regarded Bass Fishing Featured in "Woods-N-Water News"

IMLAY City, Mich.--The top-ranked Adrian College bass fishing team is featured in the August 2019 issue of Woods-N-Water News. Freelance writer Bob Vogel wrote about the Bulldogs in a two-page centerspread feature story titled "A National Bass Fishing Powerhouse."

Last week, Adrian made the No. 1 ranking in the Bass Pro Shops School of the Year (SOY) standings, presented by Abu Garcia, for the seventh time in program history--on a record pace with 3,670 points, no less.

"The crazy thing is, this has been the trend for the last three or four years. It's great to be in this position as it's definitely an indication we have made the most of our opportunities thus far," noted Seth Borton, who is the only head coach the Adrian Bulldogs have known since the fishing program was founded for the 2014-15 school year.

The key to Adrian's success has been remaining consistent throughout the summer. Of the 12 qualifying events up to this point in the season, they have earned points at a total of 10. This most recent update contains results from eight new events to count towards a team's total. Adrian won two of those events and had top 10 finishes in numerous others, with rising juniors Zachary Manneback and Gunner Wilson leading the way at the Michigan College Bass Circuit event held on Higgins Lake (Roscommon Mich.) on June 23.

"We have had some incredible stretches starting in late spring through the summer where we have won or finished in the top five in every event we have fished," added Borton.
