Am Matthew Hamby wins MBOA 2014 Classic
It has been a remarkable day in the history of the Mr. Bass of Arkansas tournament series. Today, Mr. Matthew Hamby set a new record by becoming the youngest person to win the Classic in the amateur division. Matthew is a 17 year old young man from Little Rock. He has been an amazing competitor throughout the year, consistently placing high at each qualifying event. Today he proved himself worthy of being called a champion when he weighed in 13.70 lbs for the day. This weight, combined with yesterday’s weight of 10.62 lbs, gave him a two day total weight of 24.32 lbs to edge out Chase Peek who had a two day combined weight of 19.58. Randy Verboon, who held the lead going into the second day of competition with 13.55 lbs closed out the afternoon with an additional 3.11 lbs for a total weight of 16.66 lbs, landing him in fourth place.
