While the hopes of the Pack’s basketball season virtually unravels into a state that is all too familiar for most Wolfpack fans, we can take plenty of consolation in noting that Will White and Chris Wood have won the Under Armour College Bass National Championship!
The crazy thing is, both White and Wood admit they don’t have much experience in river fishing:
Both from North Carolina, neither Wood nor White had much experience with river fishing coming into the championship, and this was only Wood’s second tournament with College Bass, but they did rise to the top-two from a club that has more than 40 members to represent North Carolina State.
Plenty of research, sticking to the basics and committing themselves to a spot that has proven it can win tournaments made them national champions.
“I don’t think this is going to set in for another week or two,” Wood said, “maybe once my phone stops ringing.”
In October 2007, Chad Craven and Alex Freeman won the BoatU.S. National Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship. It looks like NC State may hold the keys to success in what it takes to win a Bass Fishing National Championship.
