Wednesday May 23rd, the Manteno Bass Fishing Team held their 5th Year End Awards Banquet.  Midtown provided us their back Atrium room, and Silvanos Pizza served us our meal.  We are very thankful for all the support from our Sponsors, Guest Seminar Speakers, Family, Friends, Volunteer Coaching Staff, and School Administration. The Manteno High School Bass Fishing Team would not function without the Awesome support. 

We had another very good season. We fished 9 tournaments. 8 top 10 finishes, four of which were top 5,  and one First Place finish out of a 68 boat field at the Illini High School Bass Fishing Tournament on Clinton Lake. Alot to be prod of, and to build on moving forward.

At the Banquet, each student received their Varsity Certificates, Numbers, Letters, and Pins. They also received a Custom Blade Jig "The Hater" made by Rick McCarty. 7' Fibreglass Crankin Rod from Chuck DiVito at Fox River Rods. Trigger Happy Comfort Grips Purple Rod Socks and a Team Draw String back pack.
