To say the Auburn University Bass Fishing Team had a big weekend at nationals would be an understatement.

Just days after the talented tandem of Logan Parks and Tucker Smith won the title of Carhartt Bassmaster College Series 2021 Team of the Year, four other Auburn anglers made a big splash at the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship presented by Bass Pro Shops. The teams of Conner Crosby/James Cobbs and Sam Hanggi/Sam Hoesley not only advanced to Championship Saturday at the St. Lawrence River in Waddington, New York, but finished among the top six in a battle with more than 120 college teams from across the country.

Crosby and Cobbs reeled in a third-place finish with a total haul of 59 pounds, 8 ounces, with Hanggi and Hoesley netting sixth place at 57 pounds, 11 ounces. With the top-three finish, Crosby and Cobbs also qualified for the College Classic Bracket — a limited-field event scheduled for later this year that will send one angler to the 2022 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk — where they will join Parks and Smith, who qualified via their Team of the Year victory.
