EUFAULA – To become the best, Cullman's bass fishing program, led by coach Kyle Morris, defeated the best in the Alabama B.A.S.S. Nation High School Championship Saturday at Lake Eufaula.

Led by Lawson Graves and Cameron Glasscock, the Bearcats got the job done, defeating Auburn by three quarters of a pound.

Coach Kyle Morris' squad brought in 56.56 pounds to Auburn's 55.64 pounds.

Graves and Glasscock, who have been together for three years, were fourth overall from individual boats. The duo recorded 29.45 pounds. They had help from the other two boats, consisting of Keaton Kinney and David Dueland (9.31 pounds), plus Cy Lambert and Houston Smith (17.77 pounds) putting the entire team on top when the weigh-ins were completed.

Kinney is a sophomore, while his teammate Dueland is a junior. Lambert and Smith are the youngsters, both in their freshman season.

Thirty-one clubs competed in the two-day state event.

Graves and Glasscock punched their ticket to the nationals at Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tennessee June 22-24. They join Justin Lowery and James Cobbs who qualified from an event earlier in the season.

Glasscock's effort earned him a $10,000 scholarship to the University of Montevallo. Hanging in the balance will be $50,000 in scholarships in the nationals, along with national television exposure from ESPN.
