So the Downstate Morton team of Justin Schick and Jordan Jensen won with a five-bass limit, weighing 13 pounds, 4 ounces, caught on Friday.

Senior Chris Bulaw and freshman Lintaro Kajiwara put Wheaton-Warrenville South second with 11-10. That's the highest finish by a Chicago-area school since Zion-Benton finished second in the inaugural championship in 2009.

Notre Dame was third with 10-4 behind senior David Dickson and junior Tom Sora, who fished watermelon or green Senkos in a short bank at Allen Branch.

York sophomore Domenico Vigilante's largemouth weighing 4-9), caught in the final 45 minutes Friday on a square bill crankbait off the riprap by Dam West Marine was big bass for the tournament.
