A strong performance, for sure, but in doing so, the freshman duo became the first all-female team to ever qualify for the YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship. (The 2018 event’s date and location have not been announced.) Now, this is 2017, and it’s pretty clear that anyone should be able to compete wherever and whenever they choose. But, numerically speaking, fishing remains a male-dominated sport. So yeah, this is a big deal. And so is the backstory.
