Overall on the day, 30 High School teams from around southeast Louisiana competed, and Sacred Heart's all-girls team finished in the Top 10 (1 lb. away from third in our first year). Congrats, anglers !!!

The one-day event, hosted by City Park Conservancy and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), is a family-friendly freshwater fishing competition – the oldest tournament of its kind in the United States.

"It's been a whale of a ride watching everyone catch their first largemouth bass," said fishing Coach Gary. "And right here in City Park. The look on their faces when they realized there are actual fish, and not just any fish, but largemouth bass in City Park. Priceless."
