Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said the coach will get a $1,500 stipend and added that the board will immediately post the new coach’s position, and that the stipend may be split if there ends up being more than one person with coaching duties.
Trigg County Athletic Director Marty Jaggers said he sees the club as a good introduction to the sport, one he believes to be a natural fit for the county, and that there is already a lot of interest in the team.
“When you tell people you’re from Trigg County … the first thing they talk about is fishing and hunting,” Jaggers said. “We’ve got some very famous fishermen and hunters in this area … We’ve got some people here who make their living doing that.”
Jaggers said 27 students have already shown an interest in joining the team, and added that the first high school state bass fishing tournament will be held in the Land Between the Lakes area in April 25 – 28.
