The SWOSU Outdoor Team is preparing for its next fishing tournament that is planned March 22 at the Boat Us Okie Challenge Championships on Lake Eucha in eastern Oklahoma.

A pair of SWOSU anglers—Mitchell Decker of Coweta and Dalton Warrington of Thomas—recently won second place out of 67 teams at the FLW College Southern Division Qualifier on Lake Texhoma. For winning second, the pair won $1,000 and a spot in the FLW Regional Tournament that will be held later this year in October at Grand Lake in northeast Oklahoma. Decker and Warrington will attempt to qualify for the FLW National Championship Tourney at Lake Murray in South Carolina.

Dalton and Mitchell are currently seeded 12th in a field of over 40 qualifying teams.

Other SWOSU team members are: Collin McFeeters of Thomas and Chris Bradley of Osage; and Jeremy Guest of Collinsville and Kenneth Kellems of Weatherford. Rocky Powell is faculty sponsor of the SWOSU Outdoor Team.

Other upcoming events include possible appearances at Kentucky Lake, Lake Chickamauga in Tennessee and at another tournament on Texhoma in April. The SWOSU Outdoor Team does plan to compete against 250 plus universities in the Boat Us National Championship May 20-22 on Lake Pickwick in Alabama.
