Josh Koontz and Jake Henderson won the Komen striper tournament with these two fish, which weighed 16.7 pounds.
Josh Koontz and Jake Henderson of Lexington bested a field of 23 teams— composed of 41 adults, three youngsters, and one Labrador retriever — to win the Susan G. Komen Fishing for a Cure benefit striper tournament Dec. 15 on High Rock Lake.

Koontz and Henderson weighed in two stripers for a total of 16.7 pounds to take the first-place prize of $605.

Aaron Miller of Thomasville and Jim Merritt of Asheboro were a close second with 16.2 pounds, winning $338. Mark Morris of Lexington and Lane Bivens of Denton were third with 15.13, banking $233.

The tournament, sponsored by D&E Marine and presented by the Old North State Line Siders Striper Club, raised more than $1,300 for the Komen NC Triad Affiliate, which covers 11 counties in support of breast cancer research and treatment.

Butch Holder won the big-fish prize of $420 with a striper weighing 11.7 pounds. He received a bonus of $100 for releasing the fish alive thanks to the use of a striper tube.
