COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 12, 2015) – The Galia Academy team of twin brothers Kyle and Caleb Greenlee brought five bass to the scale Saturday weighing 11 pounds, 14 ounces, to win the 2015 Ohio State High School Fishing Championship presented by Cabela’s on Alum Creek Reservoir. The win earned the team the title of state champions and qualified the team to compete in the High School Fishing Central Conference championship on Lake Carlyle in September.
“We stayed pretty close to the launch ramp area most of the day,” said Kyle. “We caught most of our fish in the morning on watermelon-colored Zingers and Poppers.”
“We really want to thank our coach Todd May for helping us today,” added Caleb. “He kept us focused and I think that was our key to winning.”
The top four teams on Alum Creek that advanced to the Central Conference Championship were:
  1st:        Galia Academy – Kyle Greenlee and Caleb Greenlee, five bass, 11-14
  2nd:       Coshocton High School – Ethan Woodie and Zach Michael, five bass, 11-13
  3rd:        Colerain High School – Cole Wessner and Dan Hechler, five bass, 10-14
