Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Local youth Scotty Hagan and his partner Ross Kearns placed sixth in the 2019 Junior B.A.S.S. National Championship which took place last weekend.
They made the biggest move up the leader board during the two day finals. They went from the 32nd position of day one to sitting in the number one hot seat for a short period on day two. They led the tournament for a short while and landed a 7lb fish on the second day. The team ended the tournament with a combined weight of 16 lbs 12 ounces, putting them in 6th place overall.
"We can not contain the excitement for Scotty and Ross. What a way to end the season, finishing 6th in the country," said Carlet Hagan, Scotty Hagan’s mother. "We want to thank everyone for all the support of the Hagan brothers fishing career, we are all so proud, and hope to one day bring that trophy home."
The tournament was held on Carroll County Thousand Acre Lake in Mackenzie, TN.
