Bass fishing team hopes to cast off

Marion County High School may see a new sport in the near future.
Brett Underwood, a social studies teacher at Marion County High School, is proposing a bass fishing team. The team would be able to compete with other schools in Kentucky that already have bass fishing teams.
In fact, bass fishing is already recognized as a sport activity by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA).
The idea was proposed at a site-based decision making council meeting where Underwood thought it was well received.
Despite this however, the team has not been given a “go” just yet.
There are many logistics that need to be ironed out first. This includes how the program will be paid for, insurance, and finding people willing to donate their time and boats.
A boat captain must also be found and given the proper background checks as well.
