The 11th Annual Clay Roberts Memorial Inshore Slam Tournament sponsored by American Electrical Contracting and the Key Auto Company Junior Angler Tournament welcomed 93 registered fishermen to Beach Marine June 16.

Forty-five teams, including junior anglers, weighed in fish. Fifteen slams (one flounder, red and trout each) weighed in, with the top prize of $1,500 going to Eddie Cabler and Brian Dutcher, whose catch weighed in at a near-record 15.11 pounds. First place category winners were Leroy Holloway (7.01 lb. red), Larry Finch (5.05 lb. trout) and Ryan Hall (5.35 lb. flounder), who each received $1,000.

The junior angler winner was Elijah Cabler with a red weighing 5.96 pounds.

In River Or Ocean, the foundation started by Gary, Terry and Casey Roberts in 2008 in memory of son and brother, Clay, announced that the 11th Clay Roberts Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Connor Sidman, a graduating senior at Bishop Kenny. Sidman was selected by the Scholarship Committee as the student who best emulated Clay’s spirit and values. Sidman fished in the tournament along with three other past scholarship winners, Hunter Parry, Will Parry and Natalie Hart.
