Fishing Team Season Results

The regular season for the Texas High School Bass Association – Northeast Division finished at Lake O’the Pines on Saturday, March 2nd.


Mineola HS Fishing Team has one team that qualified to move on to Regionals to be held on April 13th at Lake Palestine. The Top 40% from that tournament will meet the Top 40% finishers from the other two Regional events at Cedar Creek Lake, Athens, TX on May 10-12.


Seniors River Simonek and Tristan Rychlik finished the five divisional tournaments in second place in the Angler of the Year race. They had three Top 10 finishes, winning scholarships and prizes and weighed in 38.54 pounds over those five tournaments. They were captained by Tim Tyndell and Bobby Waldon.


Seniors Jake Haggerton and Zane Bedford fished all five tournaments and placed in the Top 20 at Lake Fork but could not catch any of the required 14” minimum length bass in the other tournaments. They finished below the Top 50% of the full division field of 122 and did not qualify to go to Regionals. R.L. Lewis was their boat captain.


Senior Caleb Teeters and Sophomore Tanner Block also fished this season, only able to compete in three tournaments and did not fish the final two due to boat mechanical issues. Their captain is Tony Kelsey.


The team would like to thank their sponsors, whose donations make it possible to enter all the tournaments and will cover travel costs and hotel fees for Regionals and State tournments. Special thanks to Whataburger for hosting the first O’Whata Night fundraiser for the team.


Superintendent, Dr. Kim Tunnell is the team sponsor this season.
