From Ben Boggs,
GHS Bass Fishing Team Release
Grainger High School Bass Fishing Team will begin its tournament season on Sat 10/22/2016.
Students will be arranged in groups of two (2) and will fish out of boat supplied by volunteer “boat captains” from our community. The boat captains will operate the boat at all times and the students will only be allowed to operate the trolling motor but are not obligated to. The boat captains will act as fishing coaches and also serve as chaperones for their boat to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. The boat captains are donating their time and the use of their boat and without them our students wouldn’t otherwise have these opportunities.
