Applicants for the scholarship must score a 25 or higher on the ACT and rank in the top 25 percent of their graduating class with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

Stielow caught a 4 pound, 3 ounce Northern to win that division, and Rauscher caught a 5 pound, 1 ounce Bullhead, and won the Bullhead cate- gory.
