Kansas State wins third bass fishing national championship in five years

Kansas State anglers Travis Blenn and Kyle Alsop brought home more than just a new Ranger fishing boat from their final day of fishing Friday at the YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship on Alabama’s Lake Wheeler. They also brought home the third national championship in five years for the young Wildcat program, which was started in January 2004. The team also won Bassmaster national titles last year and in 2012.

Alsop, a member of last year’s Bassmaster College Series National Championship-winning team, and his teammate posted a three-day total of 44 pounds, 12 ounces, including an 11-pound, 11-ounce bag on the final day of competition to retain their first-place spot ahead of defending tournament champions Gettys Brannon and Patrick Walters, of South Carolina, with room the spare.
