Three Livingston Academy Fishing Teams were privileged to fish the High School Worlds Final Championship that was held on Lake Pickwick in Florence, Alabama on June 28 - July 2.  Our teams consisted of members, Austin Garret and Dakota Wilson, Clay Johnson and Ethan Carr, and the team of Bailey Pennycuff and Bailey Tallent.  These three teams represented Livingston Academy extremely well all week.  Competitors for this tourney represented 22 states across the nation.  The team of Bailey Pennycuff and Bailey Tallent were drawn through the "lucky dog drawing" to fish the final day for up to $60,000.00 in combined scholarship monies.  They were able to finish in 20th place on the final day, with nearly three hundred boats qualified for this tournament.  Livingston Academy is so proud of these young anglers and the pride and honor in which they represented our school and county.  Go HOG-EYE!!!
