HIGH SCHOOL FISHING: Wilkins added as boat captain

The Bowie High School Bass Club had a meeting on July 21 at Edwards Collision Center.

The gathering served as a review of the 2015-16 season, and preparations for the next year are underway.

James Wilkins has been added as a new boat captain, replacing Trent Gillaspia since his son, Kollin, has graduated. Wilkins will pilot the two-person team of Jeremy Stone and Kyler Ratliff.

Scott Wolsey will remain as boat captain with Lane Hopson and Hadley Morgan, a pair who has been given a heap of accolades. Rusty Edwards will serve as boat captain for Jared Stone, and a possible new member.

Toni Stone, team organizer, said the group also discussed a new design for jerseys for the 2016-17 season. Gillaspia also was present to hand out awards to boys from last season.

Stone reported the group also will have a new Facebook page.

The first meet of the season is set for Hidden Cove Park at Lake Lewisville on Sept. 24.
