Bradley Roy’s 9th Annual High School Open at Lake Cumberland.

The 2021 Bradley Roy High School Open presented by Covercraft was likely one of the most challenging installments of the tournament’s nine-year history. 139 high school teams and 34 junior teams (6-8th grade) competed October 9th on Lake Cumberland, and the Top Five fished the following day on Cedar Creek Lake in Stanford, Kentucky.

Significant general scholarships for all teams were made possible by Covercraft, Farmers National Bank, First Southern National Bank, A Few Good Men Fishing Tournament, LCR Contracting, City of Jamestown, and Angler’s Outpost and Marine.

There is no doubt she will be a valuable member of our team.”
