Red Bank High School track coaches Hugh Enicks and Donell Dunning were the overall masters winners as well as their age-group winners in one event each Saturday at the Masters Southeastern Track and Field Championships at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C. Enicks, the Lions' head coach who is in the men's 50-54 age group, won the 3000-meter steeplechase in 12 minutes, 20 seconds. Dunning was the 35-39 and overall winner in 11.16 in the 100-meter dash. "It was 95 degrees on the track and we're both a little out of shape, but we got it done," Enicks said by telephone. They will compete in six weeks in the national competition in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Fishing

• The big time of fishing will hit Lake Chickamauga this week with B.A.S.S. running the sixth of its nine 2014 Bassmasters Elite Series professional tournaments out of the Dayton Boat Dock starting Wednesday. The final 12 will wrap up the event for the world's largest angling organization next Sunday. The Elite Series pros will be joined by 33 top-ranked anglers from the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens presented by All State, and a separate college regional tournament will be held Thursday and Friday on nearby Watts Bar Lake. It has Carhartt as the title sponsor and will include entries from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, among others.
