Highby Outdoors is sponsoring two young native Nebraska bass fishermen in the 2019 Junior World Bass Championship in North Little Rock, Ark., on August 8-10.

Justin McEvoy and Brennan Teters, both 15 and both from Wahoo, Neb., will represent Nebraska in the tournament, which consists of two-person teams made up of anglers age 15 and under. To qualify for the Junior World Bass Championship, an event organized by The Bass Federation, the two-person team must have first won the championship of the state they are representing.

"We are so excited to represent Nebraska in this tournament," McEvoy said. "I have been fishing my entire life but competing for the title of Junior World Bass Champion has always been a dream of mine".

"All of us here at Highby Outdoors are super excited to sponsor Justin and Brennan as they pursue their dream of winning the Junior World Bass Championship," said Highby Outdoors owner Matt Highby. "This is what Highby Outdoors is all about, helping others pursue their outdoor passion. We are a team made up of folks that live and breathe the outdoors and we love every chance we get to help others pursue that passion, especially when it involves the youth."

McEvoy and Teters will be competing against other two-person teams from approximately 40 other states during the three-day competition. They will be competing for $2,500 each in scholarships. This Junior World Bass Fishing Championship is famous for developing some of the best anglers to hit the water. Many of today's top professional anglers, including Jacob Wheeler, Shane Lehew and Justin Atkins, took part in this same event when they were starting out.

"All of us at Highby Outdoors would like to wish these young Nebraska anglers the best of luck, not only at this tournament, but also the tournaments that are sure to come in their near future," Highby said.

Highby Outdoors, an online retailer of outdoor gear based in Sidney, Neb., is made up of a family of dedicated employees, all of whom formerly worked at Cabela's Inc. "Check us out for all your outdoor needs," Highby said. "We are constantly adding to our product selection, so if you don't see what you are looking for, give us a call. Our passion is helping you with anything you need to make your experience in the outdoors great."
