KINGSVILLE -- A pair of casting records fell at the Shore Fishing and Casting Club International (SFCCI) Habanero Tournament here June 22. Will Nash of San Antonio owns both new records, and he now holds the record in three of four weight classes.

The Habanero Tournament, so named because of the high temperatures when the long-distance casting event is held each June, drew a good crowd from local membership, and everyone was said to have had a good time.

In the women’s 125-gram division, Lisa Osuna took home top honors with a cast of 401.7 feet -- a new personal best, while Lorna McKay finished second with a toss of 209.7 feet.

In men’s competition, Nash set a new U.S. record in the 100-gram division with a cast of 814.41 feet. Second place went to Cliff McKay with a cast of 335 feet. Nash also set a new U.S. record in the 175-gram division with a cast of 801.63 feet. He was the only competitor in the division, but made the most of it with his record-setting performance.

In the men’s 125-gram division, Carlos Osuna finished first with a cast of 742.2 feet, while Cody Mitchell was second with a toss of 599.1 feet, and Cliff McKay rounded out the top three with a cast of 481.7 feet.

Osuna also took first-place honors in the 150-gram division, casting 718.4 feet. Jack Rice took home silver with his second-place cast of 687.6 feet, and David Womack was third, logging a distance of 635.1 feet. Israel Hernandez and Cody Mitchell rounded out the top five.
