McGee Creek Bass Tournament
On Saturday, July 14, members of the Pushmataha County Sportsman Club held a bass tournament on McGee Creek Lake. Twenty-four members competed in the tournament. The weather for the tournament was hot and humid with clear to partly cloudy skies. Twenty members were able to catch at least one keeper with ten members bringing in a six fish limit.
The Pushmataha County Junior Bassmasters competed in their second qualifying bass tournament of the 2012 season on Saturday, June 30th, at Pine Creek Lake.
One other bass club also fished a tournament on the same day out of the same ramp. So with several boats on the lake for the day, fishing proved to be very difficult for all that fished.
Winning first place in the 11-14 age group was Jake Nabors with one bass that weighed 2.08 lbs. Second place went to Dyllyn Marlow with one bass weighing 1.88 lbs.
The Red River Jr. Golf held it's Championship Tournament on Monday, July 9th at the Paris Country Club. There were 57 young golfers at this event. Some of the player had not qualified for the Championship trophies but received medals if they placed.
The Red River Jr. Golf had 2 Players to receive Scholarships. N'Kele Brown of Valliant, Oklahoma and Zach McEwin of Paris, Texas. These young men have showed good sportsmanship and have been as asset to the program. We wish them all the best.
Here are the results from the tournament:
