The scholarship recipients were Nathan Priechenfried from Hubert, Dayan Trejo-Martinez from Newport, Jackson Sproul from Morehead City, Walton C Guthrie from Beaufort, Wyatt S Nowacek from Beaufort and Alisha D Tosto from Beaufort.
We would also like to express our gratitude to all participants who took part in the event. Your enthusiasm and sportsmanship made the tournament a huge success, and we appreciate your contribution to our vibrant fishing community.
A special thank you goes out to our generous sponsors for providing the scholarship funds. Your support and commitment to our youth are invaluable, and we are grateful for the opportunities you have created.
