NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University Campus Recreation Department will host the fifth annual Worsham Bass Tournament on Saturday, June 24, at Jackson Hill Park and Marina on Lake Sam Rayburn in Broaddus.

All proceeds go to the Dr. Raymond Lee Worsham Scholarship, which provides financial assistance to student employees of SFA's Campus Recreation Department.

Dr. Raymond "Ray" Worsham was SFA intramural department director for 43 years. The scholarship was established through the Alumni Association to honor Worsham's dedication and lasting impact at the university.

Participants can register for the tournament online at www.sfaalumni.com/event/Bass2017, mail a registration form to the SFA Alumni Association or register at the Jackson Hill Marina boat ramp before the tournament starts.

There will be a 60 percent payout for first, second and third places, as well as a prize package for "Big Bass." The tournament begins with a shotgun start approximately 30 minutes before sunrise. Entry fee is $150 per boat.
