Primary School Student Wrangles in the Big One


This past weekend, Holy Cross was well represented at City Park’s Annual Bass Rodeo. Primary student Garrison Schilling (son of faculty member Dr. Katherine Schilling) won the Paul Kalman Award, which is named for the rodeo’s founder and is given to the angler 12 years old or younger who catches the heaviest bass. The 6-year-old hooked a bass that weighed 1.90 pounds, and he caught the fish on a lizard while fishing in the Scout Island area with his dad, Kevin. The elder Schilling also has a history in the Big Bass Rodeo. His 9-pounder broke the park’s 45-year-old bass record on Mardi Gras in 2012, only to have Zissis come along in August 2012 to edge the mark. Mike edged that standard higher six weeks ago with his 9.1-pound catch near Scout Island.

Congratulations Garrison!
