Two Alexandria College fishing teams had the chance to compete down in Leesburg, Florida, in the Major League Fishing Abu Garcia Harris Chain of Lakes competition, and both saw success.

The team of Jackson Baker (Cokato, MN) and Thomas Parker (Delano, MN) placed in the top 30 percent of teams at the competition, while Logan Huewe (Zimmerman, MN) and Walker Krampitz (Waseca, MN) finished in the top 15 percent.

Huewe and Krampitz finished 38th out of a total of 233 teams from schools all across the country, with a total of five fish that weighed a total of 13 pounds 9 nine ounces.

"Felt good to leave the frozen tundra and head south to Florida. It was an awesome experience representing Alexandria College down south along with fixing the itch for some big green ones," Huewe said in an Instagram post, according to an Alexandria College press release.

Baker and Parker placed 74th overall with five fish that totaled 11 pounds 5 ounces.


Only two colleges from the upper midwest, Alexandria College and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, had a team place in the top 50. Will Hammon and Cabe Mackey of Catawba Valley Community College (Hickory, North Carolina) won the competition with five fish totaling 25 pounds and five ounces.

The Alexandria College competitive fishing team next heads to Missouri for the Abu Garcia College Fishing Lake of the Ozarks competition on March 17, 2023.
