Details ------- In their first year, Olympia Anglers win the Sectional. Josh Boots and Brantson Komnick lead the team to a sectional victory with a weight of 13.68 lbs and the tournament big bass of 6.82 lbs, caught by Josh Boots . Their teammates Aiden Fosdick and Blaine Halley respectfully made the decision to keep Josh and Brantson in the boat all day, knowing that they were doing well and had a chance to take our whole team to state. We are very proud of Aiden and Blaine's decision. Aiden and Blaine will be traveling to state with Josh and Brantson. We are equally as proud of our number 2 boat of Nick Siebert, Jackson Long, Jason Boots and Brandon Wood. They battled the rain also and weighed 4 fish for 4 lbs and never gave up. A Special thanks to Carter Lynch for showing up to support his team. It doesnt matter who caught the fish or who didnt. We are all one big family and we will compete at the state championship at Carlyle lake as one big family. Thanks to all who made this possible. Ken Petersen, Scott Boots, Ryan Komnick, BJ Long, Andrew Green, Bill Hopkins, Brett Goodman, Amy Siebert and Stacey Boots.
