EWU Heading to Bassmaster College National Championship

Updated:

The Eastern Washington University Sportsman's Club is sending a team of two anglers to the B.A.S.S. Collegiate National Championship coming up August 1st-3rd on Lake Chatuge, GA. The team of Nick Barr of Lacey, WA & Jarred Walker of Moses Lake, WA  are the first team from EWU & the State of Washington to qualify for the most prized national championship in all of college fishing.

Nick & Jarred qualified for this tournament via a top 10 finish at the B.A.S.S. College Western Regional Championship at Clear Lake, CA on April 6th-7th. 68 collegiate teams at the 2013 National Championship will be fishing for thousands of dollars in scholarship money, bragging rights, and a potential berth into the professional national championship; the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, where the top prizes exceeds $500,000. 

Barr founded the EWU Sportsman's Club in 2010 and it is now one of the largest, most decorated clubs at Eastern. With over 60 members, the club participates with multiple teams on both the FLW & B.A.S.S. College fishing circuits, provides hunting & fishing trips, hunter's safety classes and is committed to habitat enhancement and community service. The overall mission of the club is to get college students involved in the outdoors. Nick & Jarred will be traveling over 5,000 miles round-trip towing Barr's boat to compete in the national championship. An expensive and grueling trip, but well worth it to represent the state of Washington and compete for the national title.

The EWU Sportsman's Club is looking for help in any shape or form to help their team be able to compete at the National Championship and fund its growing operations for the next year. The school's Club Sports Federation has set up a tax-deductible online donation program. When donating, make sure to earmark it for "Sportsman's Club".
