Last Week's Potomac River FLW Tour didn't affect the top spot in the Rookie Race all that much. BASS rookie Derek Remitz still leads, as he has all season. But because of a change at the 2nd-place position (see below), he extended his lead by another 4 points.
Bryan Thrift fished the Potomac. With a 69th-place finish there, he drops a spot to 3rd and trails Remitz by about 22 points. He's been up-and-down this year on the Tour, with a 2nd and a 10th, along with a 57th and 95th, plus his 69th at the Potomac. He has one event left in which to make up some ground on Remitz, but also note that Remitz or Casey Ashley (now in 2nd), could also fade as the season wears on.
As noted, BASS rookie Ashley benefits from Thrift's Potomac finish and moves up a spot to 2nd.
Bryan Hudgins didn't fish the Potomac and remains in 4th.
FLW rookie Andy Montgomery continues to improve. He followed a 5th at Beaver with a 19th at the Potomac, which moves him up three spots to 5th.
BASS rookies Matt Sphar, Scott Campbell, and Jason Williamson all drop one spot to 6th, 7th, and 8th respectively.
Remaining events that affect the rookie race include the Detroit River FLW Tour, plus Bassmaster Elite Series events at Grand Lake, Lake Champlain, Lake Erie, the Potomac River, and Lake Toho.
