Nov. 15, 2011 – Jody White, a fisheries science major and president of the Virginia Tech Bass Fishing Team, and partner Carson Rejzer, a building construction major, placed 11th at the 2011 FlW College Fishing national Championship held last spring. The students had qualified to compete by placing fourth in the regional championship last fall. White and Rejzer competed in the first two days of the competition, but did not qualify to compete the last day. “It’s great fishing with Carson, because he’s a good angler and I just have confidence that my partner is going to catch fish,” said White.

Rejzer teamed with Wyatt Blevins, a fisheries science major, for the northern Division Regional Championship in September, where they placed third, earning a $5,000 prize and a spot to compete in next spring’s national championship. Fellow Virginia Tech fishermen David Bryant, a natural resources conservation major, and Preston Chrisman, a fisheries science major, finished 17th.
