Great catch for McIntosh grad

McIntosh graduate Dawson Lenz is continuing to excel in bass fishing in college. He and teammate Ethan Horne did well enough in the Basmaster College Series Southern Regional to qualify for the national championship tournament this summer. Their haul was 23 pounds and 10 ounces over the two day tournament and their one day haul of 13 pounds and two ounces was enough to beat the University of Florida’s team in a tiebreaker.
