For the season, the win moved Gamrs and Rice into 5th place in the season points standings.  The team of Kaden Freeze and Briley Sain are in 13th place in the region and the brother team of Branson and Dawson Wells are in 16th place.  The team of Colby Thurmond and Paul Zuzich are now in 28th place and the team of Adam Petty and Jayden Yates are in 29th place.  In the junior division, the team of Kylan Mantooth and Jonathan Lewis are in 5th place a mere 10 points out of 1st place. 

The Raider anglers will be back in action on Saturday when they travel to Jasper for a region and state trail tournament on Nickajack Lake.  The tournament will get underway at first light on Saturday from the Marion County Park boat ramp.
