XENIA — It was a soggy afternoon, but 19 drenched kids didn’t seem to notice the rain during a Greene County Fish and Game Association combination Fishing Derby and Casting competition, on a very wet Saturday, May 10 at the club lake.
Many of the kids also tried “dry land” casting. They cast practice plugs at hoola hoops and a large “bull’s eye” target. Points were made to add up to a score for winning trophies or ribbons. All participating youth got trophies and prizes from the two events. After measuring the fish for scoring, all are released back to the lake.
Participants include: Cassie Miller, Lilly Vanover, Kyle Miller, Jaxon Beasley, Raymond Shoemaker, Kaylyn Damron, Treaton Lovely, Caleb Miller, Abigail Damron, Collin Amon, Katelyn Lovely, Caden Shinkle, Adrian Hardin, Dylan Heaton, Lillian Amon, Blake Eneix, Courtney Heaton, Angelica Heggem, and Jesse Lee.
