Eagles Fishing Team Ranks 27th Out of 393 in Nation

In less than two years since its formation, the Texas A&M University-Texarkana Fishing Club has emerged as one of the top 100 college and university fishing teams in the nation.

During its inaugural season in 2015, the Eagles fished in four tournaments, finishing in 7th, 16th, 21st and14th places. Team members Josh Cole, Logan Byrd, Mike Moore and Jared Hunter qualified for the Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) Southern Regional Conference championship.

So far in 2016, the team is ranked 27th out of 393 schools from throughout the United States.

The Eagles team, which is recognized as a club sport at A&M-Texarkana, has competed in three tournaments this year, placing 14th, 71st and 77th and qualifying for the 2017 FLW College Fishing National Championship. Team members Josh Cole and Justin Snow participated in the FLW College Fishing Southern Conference event on Fort Gibson Lake in Oklahoma.

Many of the tournaments were filmed and will be airing on television this summer, said Justin Snow, president of the club. Members of the team include Justin Snow, President; Josh Cole, Vice President, Matt Fomby, Son Lam, Micheal Moore, Anthony Sciara and Zach Marsh.

Advisors are Dr. Tom Jordan and Robert Hernandez.

“Matt Fomby and Anthony Sciara are new members of the team,” said Snow. “I hope that they can keep the team alive and strong and potentially capture new and upcoming students into the sport of competitive fishing,”

The next event for Southern Conference anglers is a tournament scheduled for Oct. 8 on the Ouachita River in Monroe, Louisiana.
