SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 20, 2021) – University of North Alabama angler Kyle Zainitzer is the winner of the Garmin Tournament Rewards contingency at the 2021 AFTCO Collegiate Bass Open at Lake Dardanelle. Zainitzer, along with help of teammate Walker Sahagun, finished the event in 4th place out of an elite 216 boat field. As the highest placing Garmin user competing in the first Association of Collegiate Anglers event of the 2021-22 season, Zainitzer receives a check for $500.
“Being able to earn money from contingencies is an awesome opportunity for collegiate anglers. It’s an easy way to earn some extra cash, and just shows you that it pays to run the companies that invest in the collegiate level of the sport,” added Zainitzer. “Garmin runs a great contingency for college, by awarding $500 to the highest finishing angler that runs a Garmin. All these companies supply us with great products, so it truly is worth it to run them.”
