(Oct 10, 2017 - San Antonio, TX) Adrian College has overtaken Bethel University for the lead in the Cabela's School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia race after earning back to back victories at FLW Northern events on Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake. The Adrian College team has been well represented this season and is poised to make a run at this year's title.   
 
"We have had a phenomenal summer and we are in a great spot heading into our off season. With the high level of competition that we will face as we head south for the remainder of the season, we know we have very little room for error. Taking care of business in the FLW Northern conference (finishing 3rd, 1st, & 1st) is a huge confidence booster for our team. Being 1st in the SOY standings right now simply means we have made the most of the opportunities we have had thus far," said Adrian College Coach Seth Borton.
 
Chase Serafin and Cody Batterson are the two most recent team members to earn Cabela's School of the Year points at the FLW Northern event on Lake Erie for Adrian College. These two were able to catch a limit of 17-2 pounds. This was an all-around tough event for all the teams with heavy winds causing anglers to have to make adjustments in order to be able to catch keepers during the event.
