(Jun 15, 2016 - Flippin, AR) Colby Harville and John Maner, collegiate anglers from the University of North Alabama, qualified for the 2016 Ranger Cup University Team of the Year Challenge with a fourth-place finish in the recent BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Cabela's at Lake Pickwick.
 
With their performance at Pickwick, the highest place of finish by a Ranger Cup-qualified team, Harville and Maner also added $1,000 in contingency money from Ranger Cup University.

The University of North Alabama teammates will be matched against anglers from South Carolina University, which had the highest place of finish for a Ranger Cup University-qualified team in March's FLW College Fishing National Championship. Anglers from the two schools will square off in a made-for-TV competition that will be televised nationally on "Americana Outdoors." The fish-off will be contested later this year. Both teams will receive a grand-prize package that includes travel, lodging and meals, as well as the opportunity to compete for cash and prizes from fully rigged Ranger boats.
