IHSA completes sectional bass tournaments despite high water, weather delays

After weather delays and venue changes, the Illinois High School Association reports it completed the last of its 22 sectional bass fishing tournaments Friday.

In all, 16 sectionals statewide had to be postponed from April 19 because of bad weather or high water.

Most were rescheduled for last Monday, but six had to be held Friday, some at alternate sites.

For those sectionals that were held on schedule, high school anglers found conditions difficult.

At two sites – Argyle Lake and Lake Shelbyville - no fish were brought to the scales and no teams from those sectionals qualified for the state tournament May 3-4 at Carlyle Lake.

The sectional originally scheduled for Banner Marsh was moved to Evergreen Lake due to high water at Banner. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has closed the site indefinitely due to the nearby Illinois River remaining at near-record levels.

At the Banner/Evergreen sectional today, Glasford Illini Bluffs took first place with the only five-fish limit of the day and a total weight of 6.17 pounds.

Peoria Notre Dame was second and East Peoria was third.

Several Peoria-area schools competed in the Evergreen Lake Sectional, and Morton High School took first place with a five-fish limit weighing 10.95 pounds.

Washington High School was second and Metamora Township High School was third.

Complete results can be found at the IHSA Website: http://center.ihsa.org/reports/bsf.htm.

In other central Illinois sectionals, Athens High School powered through muddy water conditions to take first place at Sangchris Lake Monday.

Even so, teams brought more than 133 pounds of fish to the scales, including two big bass contenders over five pounds each.

Gibson said the maximum number of boats advancing from 22 sectional tournaments would be 66, but two sectionals advanced no boats and a few advanced only one team.

“We know that we won’t reach that number this year,” he said.
