Tennessee power Bartlett High School is 285 miles from Great Southern Bank Arena, a relatively short trek compared to many of the talent-loaded teams that have been in the Bass Pro Shops Tournament Champions field.The Memphis-area program has been cognizant of the 38th annual event's national prestige, but hadn't thrown its hat into the ring until this year.Bartlett, a public school that reached the Volunteer State's 4A state semifinals last year, wanted to test its mettle against nationally-ranked rosters dripping with future Power 5 college talent.
