Wilson Sartain is the President of the SHSU BASS Tournament Team. He's a senior this year and will graduate with a degree in Psychology, and hopes to continue his education in the Communication Studies Masters Program at SHSU in the Fall. He grew up fishing the lakes of East Texas and is well versed in Power fishing, but surprisingly, his favorite techniques involve finesse fishing in ultra clear water every chance he can.

Tanner Walker is the current Vice President of the club. He's in his second year of study and also exceeds in his scholastic endeavors. He grew up fishing the lakes and rivers of West Central Texas, and has an extensive salt water fishing background, but don't hold that against him. Since joining the team last year he's taken and adapted to Bass fishing very well and enjoys the power fishing techniques like flipping and pitching, or throwing Carolina rigs.
