Local youth wins bass championship

Local youth angler, Lance Freeman, is at it again. The 16 year old won the 15-18 year old division of the Bass Federation Nation Southern Division Championship today (April 15). The event took place on Barren River Lake and featured both adult and youth anglers from South Africa, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee as well as Kentucky. He was the Kentucky representative for the tournament and weighed in three bass that tipped the scales at over eight pounds. Freeman has been interviewed on WPSD-TV/ Local 6 before and now moves on to face the World's best anglers in Texas later this fall for the National Guard Junior World Championship.
