Chester Bass Club fishes first tourney

The Chester fishing team fished their first tournament on Sunday, June 22. The tournament was held on Sam Rayburn Lake. Keaton Whitworth and Cody Riley were able to prefish on Saturday to get a feel of the lake. The fishing was tough for all the anglers. The team was able to catch a few fish, but, unfortunately they were not able to place in the tournament. The next tournament will take place in Arkansas in July.

The Chester Athletic Booster Club hosted a fish fry this past Sunday. They were able to raise approximately $1600. The booster club has done an exceptional job supporting the Chester Athletic program. They have been able to purchase many of the athletic needs. Their current goal is to purchase new football uniforms. Thanks to everyone who supported this current fundraiser.
