This summer's David F. Day Memorial Scholarship Fishing Tournament helped provide scholarships to two Morris-area youth, Kelsey Greenwaldt and Missy Ascheman, and a third scholarship to another student pursuing a degree in criminal justice.

National Guardsmen also took time away from training at Camp Ripley (bottom photo) to deliver a check for the scholarship fund. The money was raised by soldiers who organized a raffle while serving in Kuwait.

The tournament also paid out more than $1,500 in prizes for place winners in three fish categories. The fish class winners were:Panfish--Deb Grewe - $300; Micah Meyers - $100; Mike Nagel - $100. Northern -- Tyler Reiner - $300; Dee Daly - $100; Mike Nagel - $100. Walleye -- Henry Canfield - $300; Karon Mason - $100; Dee Daly - $100.
