PARIS, TN (September 16, 2022) – The Association of Collegiate Anglers is set to kick off a new season at Kentucky Lake for the Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley.  As the first ACA double points event of the 2022-23 season in the race for Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia, this weekend’s event will play a key role in shaking up the standings and defining a clearer picture of the teams in contention to finish the season ranked number one.  Adrian College enters this weekend in first place, trailed by the University of Montevallo in second and McKendree University in third.

Number one ranked Adrian College has had a very successful month of September as they’ve already earned over 5,700 points.  Two Adrian College teams finished in the Top 40 at the Bassmaster College Series National Championship to earn over 3,100 points.  Three weeks later at the MLF Northern Regional on Lake Erie, Adrian College notched two Top 5 finishes for and additional 2,470 points.  Matthew Davis and Sam Shoemaker finished in first place, and Cole Carr and Paxton Giem placed fourth.  A strong showing at the Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley this weekend could cap a historic month of September for Adrian College.
