LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - A total of 15 children participated on Friday, June 28 in the fourth annual Sheriff James R. Metts Fishing Tournament for children ages 6 to 17 at Catfish Haven, 1950 Craigsen Lane, West Columbia. The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department conducted the tournament in partnership with the House of Praise and Catfish Haven.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said children who provided at least 10 hours of community service this year were selected to participate free of charge in the fishing tournament. The sheriff provided a free lunch to children who participated in the tournament.

Metts presented trophies to three children. Nevaeh Barnhardt, 9, won first place by catching the largest fish, a palm-size brim. Kennez Barnhardt, 8, who is Nevaeh Barnhardt’s brother, won second place by catching the most fish, 12 brim. Jonathon Hodges, 8, won third place by catching the second largest number of fish, seven brim.

Sgt. David Nieves and Three Fountains Resident Deputy Stacey Gadson coordinated the fishing tournament, Metts said. The fishing tournament reflects the Sheriff’s Department mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County.
