WRMJ Audio: Aledo & Westmer Were There At Beginning; Mercer County High School Continues IHSA Bass Fishing Tradition

The IHSA state tournament series in bass fishing began in 2009 and Aledo and Westmer were among the 199 initial schools to field teams. The consolidated Mercer County High School picked up the program the following year and has participated in the IHSA state series every year. The 2022 IHSA bass fishing sectional is next Thursday, May 5, at Lake McMaster. Fishing for Mercer County will be Isaak Bigham, Chase Olson, Zach Chapman, and Ben Bishop. WRMJ spoke with bass fishing coach Aaron Heartt on Wednesday.
