The MCHS Bass Fishing team competed in the first tournament of the 2024-2025 season on Saturday, June 8th.  The tournament, which launched at Perry Marine near Cannelton, IN, was on the typically tough Ohio River.  A total of 122 anglers (61 boats) were signed up and ready to compete in the high school and junior divisions.  The Madison anglers had 9 teams on the water, and several did well. In the Junior Division Madison had 2 teams competing and were led by a 2nd place finish from Floyd Davis Jr and Gavin Brittain.  Floyd/Gavin had two fish, led by Brittain’s 3.92-pound bass, for 4.80 pounds.  Randy Spry Jr was the boat captain for the team.  Finishing in a 4-way tie for 7th place were Kohen Smith and Brantly Connover. The junior winner was a perennial powerhouse- John Brown and Julianne Sorg, who brought 4 fish to the scale for 7.88 pounds.
In the High School division, the Fishin’ Cubs had 7 teams competing against a total of 48 teams.  The Cubs were paced by a 4th place finish from the brother duo of Carson Cammack and Mitchell Cammack.  Mitchell Cammack was making his tournament debut and impressed the field and organizers with a monster 5.23lb largemouth bass.  The Big Bass for the tournament was worth an extra 5 points to their score and finds the duo in overall first place in the point standings after one tournament.  The brothers had a 2 fish total of 6.52 pounds.  The team was captained by dad Chris Cammack.
The next highest finishing team was Brayden Perry and Clayton Ross in 16th place with 3.61 pounds from 2 fish making their high school debut after competing in the junior division last year.  Their boat was captained by Randy Spry.
Grant Comer and Wyatt Overpeck weighed in 2.69 pounds as Overpeck was able to boat a nice fish in his tourney debut for 23rd. Their boat was captained by Brad Comer.

Cooper Chandler and Owain Kelsey also had one fish for 1.46 pounds (Chandler’s debut tournament) and finished 34th.  Their boat was captained by Tim Chandler.

Madison’s final three teams didn’t weigh a fish and finished in a 13-way tie for 36th.  Those teams included Ayden Liter/Braxton Bray (Josh Liter captain), Kaden Ehlers (Robert Cooper captain), and Jackson Dean/Gabe Wall-Polly (Larry Hostetler captain).
The high school division was won by Henry Fleetwood/Carson Volz of Indian Creek with 5 fish and 10.81 pounds, second place by Wes Warnock/Noah Woodring with 5 fish and 8.74 pounds, and third place went to Jayden Reardon/Cason Owens of Scottsburg with 3 fish and 6.61 pounds.
After one event, the team of Carson Cammack/Mitchell Cammack led the overall point standings with 102 points, followed by Fleetwood/Volz (100), Warnock/Van Ness (99), and Reardon/Owens (98).
