DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The University of Dubuque fishing club earned a top-10 finish at this year's Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship.

Austin Brimeyer and Anthony Riesberg competed, finishing in 7th place overall, missing the top five by less than two-and-a-half pounds.  It was the club's first appearance at the national championship.

In a release sent out by the college today, Reisberg said, “Competing in the National Championship with the top ten percent of college anglers in the country was an unbelievable experience.  I think we really proved ourselves and showed that our club has the ability to compete with the best of the best in college fishing.  Lake DuBay was a tough fishery and tested us in many ways, but ultimately we kept our focus, and a seventh place finish is something to be extremely proud of!”
