Several Johnson County high school anglers are set to compete in Saturday’s Texas High School Bass Association regional tournament at Lake Ray Roberts.
Teams from Cleburne, Grandview, Godley, Joshua and Burleson qualified for the West Division regional tournament. To qualify for regionals, a team or solo angler has to be ranked in the top 50% of their respective division after five regular-season tournaments.
