Previous story:Danny Swallow ‘24 will compete in The Bass Federation (TBF) District 7 National Semi-Finals for Missouri and Kansas from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1 at Wilson Lake in Russell, Kansas.

“I’m super excited,” Swallow said. “I gotta definitely do a lot of research and find out some interesting spots that I can maybe hit.”

Swallow will be fishing as a co-angler on a boat with a professional.

“I’m excited to be on a professional boat for the weekend and learn some tips and tricks from him,” Swallow said. “And I’m just excited overall.”

Swallow qualified to fish in the tournament when he and Mitch Geiser ‘23 won the TBF Student Angler Federation State championship last April.

If Danny wins he will advance to the TBF Federation National Championship in the spring.

“I never thought [fishing] would go anything higher than just like a hobby, but it quickly turned into something that I’m doing every weekend,” Swallow said. “A lot of kids want to get involved and I’m excited to help lead them.”
