KINGSVILLE -- During a long-distance casting tournament named for one of the sport’s great ambassadors, a new national record was set here last month.

With a cast of 863.5 feet, Will Nash of San Antonio set a new national record during the Shore Fishing and Casting Club International Jerry Valentine Classic Tournament held March 15-16. For those having trouble wrapping their minds around that distance, understand that it is just shy of 288 yards -- which is just short of three football fields laid goal line to goal line.

The intense competition featured some of the best casters from Texas and across the United States. Nash led the way with his record-setting weekend, but others had impressive outings, as well.

Tommy Farmer finished second overall with a monster cast of 842.5 feet. Carlos Ozona threw 765.2 feet to finish third, and Jack Rice was third with a cast of 695.1 feet. Charlie Portaluppi made a cast of 651 feet, Rudy Ramirez threw the weight 629.6 feet, and Rocky Guerra was good for 602.6 feet. David Womack was just under 600 at 588.5 feet.

The next tournament will be held Saturday, June 21, as the casting club hosts its annual Habanero Tournament in Kingsville.
