West Rutland’s Jacob Patch and Proctor’s Hunter Skaza teamed up to claim top honors at the Vermont high school bass fishing state championships on Sunday.

Competing as members of the Quarry Valley Unified Union School District, Patch and Skaza’s bag of 21.75 pounds was enough to seize the team title. The competition, the first year as a VPA varsity sport, was held on Lake Champlain in South Hero.

Burr and Burton’s Michael Alfano and Liam Walsh took second (20.57 pounds) and Randolph’s Brendan Vinton and Chase Martin took home third place (19.30 pounds).

In the individual categories, Hartford’s Thomas Gross won the Small Mouth Lunker division, reeling in a 3.95 pound bass. In the Large Mouth Lunker division, Andrew Goodrich of Essex hauled in the largest catch, a 4.37 pound bass.
