The Catawba Valley Community College bass fishing team has released its 2020 schedule and roster.
This spring's bass fishing team consists of eight members — seven of whom return to the squad from this past fall's first-ever team, including Lane Bailey, Spencer Black, Jeremy Dellinger, Nathan Dellinger, Caleb Lonca, Adam Seagle and Nathan Smith.
The lone new edition to the Red Hawks is freshman angler Megan O'Neill — a Monroe, N.C. native and Central Academy of Technology and Arts alumnus.
These Red Hawk anglers open the season on Friday, Feb. 7 in an FLW tournament on Lake Seminole on the Georgia/Florida border.
"We are all excited about this schedule," said CVCC bass fishing head coach Angela Mayo. "The team will have the opportunity to travel to a lot of diverse fisheries, including Lake Guntersville, which is one of those 'bucket list' lakes. I'm really looking forward to seeing the team in action."
CVCC will participate in three FLW tournaments, three B.A.S.S. tournaments and one BoatUS Championship event during the year.
The one-day FLW tournaments take place on Lake Seminole (Feb. 7), on Lake Guntersville in Alabama (April 24) and on Lake Hartwell on the South Carolina/Georgia border (Oct. 16).
The Red Hawks' B.A.S.S. tournament schedule includes a trio of three-day events on Smith Lake in Cullman, Ala. (Feb. 27-29), on Lake Hartwell (March 26-28) and on Cumberland Lake in Kentucky (May 6-8).
The lone BoatUS Championship tournament that the Red Hawks will participate in takes place May 21-23 on Pickwick Lake in Tennessee.
Along with these tournaments, the Red Hawks will also participate in several intrasquad tournaments, which will determine seeding for the larger tournaments.
