North Augusta Fishing Team to host tournament

The North Augusta Fishing Team, comprised of students from local middle and high schools, will be the host of a tournament set for March 2 at Wildwood Park in Appling, Ga.

Participation is free and open only to teams that are members of The Bass Federation. Anglers representing a variety of colleges and universities have been invited. Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the first- and second-place finishers in both divisions (middle and high school) and to the winners in the "big fish" category. A $500 scholarship is to go to the top high-school winner.

The registration deadline is Feb. 15. For more information, email Rosie DeAnnunits at or call 624-0463. The team's booster club also can be reached at 341 St. Julian Place, North Augusta, S.C. 29860.
