We managed to raise over $4,000 and donated 10% to the American Cancer Society,” said Tyler Tran, Vice President of LU ASCE. “We would not have been able to achieve the success we did without the help of faculty and staff in the College of Engineering. We hope the board members of the 2023-2024 ASCE can have an even more successful event than we had!”

The tournament consisted of 27 teams, in total, with entry fee of $250 per teams of two which included tickets for the Captain’s Dinner at Sweet Basil. The event began at 6:30am and lasted until weigh-in at 2pm. The competition had challengers competing for up to $2,000 cash prizes.

"Being a part of LU ASCE for the past 3 years has truly changed me and has been one of the best parts of my journey with LU,” said President of ASCE, Frisda Rosenbaum. “I joined LU ASCE in pursuit of an internship. Not only did I succeed in obtaining an internship, but I also met some incredible people along the way. LU ASCE has prepared me to be the best civil engineer I can be."

The tournament was a success, ending with siox winners in total. LU COE and LU ASCE is excited for the future of the Redfish Classic Fishing Tournament and hope to catch more participants next year.
