Kevin Duggins landed limit and first place at first bass event of year for Marble Falls Club.

From staff reports

The Marble Falls High School Bass Fishing Club will hold its second tournament of the year Oct. 15 on Lake Travis.

The Mustangs team will be looking to defend its title in the Lake Travis Cup this year.

This year’s club has 35 members, including 15 new members. Membership has been expanded to include seventh and eighth graders.

At the team’s first event of the season on Lake Marble Falls, Sept. 17, the club hosted an event with 15 boats and 30 anglers.

Mustang senior Kevin Duggins won the first event with Carson Pratt and Collin Hughes taking second and third, respectively. Duggins also caught the big bass.

“You couldn’t ask for worse conditions – air temperature 95 degrees, no wind, slick calm water,’’ Duggins said. “There was a full moon the night before which means the bass had been feeding all night. Despite the conditions, some anglers still managed to catch some bass.’’

The club is looking for sponsors.

Medina Valley turned the tide in the second quarter with a blocked punt and a key interception to score 21 points in less than four minutes late in the quarter to take command of the District 26-5A football game between the Panthers and the Marble Falls Mustangs Friday in Castroville.


The Panthers (3-2, 1-1) made the plays when they needed them and Marble Falls had no answer after giving up an early 14-0 lead in the game.


Medina Valley went on to win, 35-21.


Marble Falls (2-3, 0-2) trailed by just a touchdown at halftime, but the Mustangs cane out cold. A penalty on the opening kickoff gave Medina Valley excellent field position to start the third quarter.
