The Auburn Bass Sports Club was recently honored by Auburn University president Jay Gogue for the club's contributions to the Auburn University Foundation.
Since January 2009, the club has presented $44,500 to Auburn from funds garnered in the National Guard FLW College Fishing series. Teams that finish in the top five of each event are awarded funds which are distributed to the foundation for general scholarships and to the club for expenses.
Gogue hosted club members at his home.
"We are very proud of the club members and their dedication to being student-athletes who represent Auburn so well," said Gogue.
