Lane Bailey and Justin Eggers of Catawba Valley Community College placed 13th out of nearly 200 college teams at the 2022 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing championship in Florence, Alabama, last week. The two-day tournament, which took place on both Pickwick and Wilson lakes, is the longest consecutive running collegiate national championship tournament for bass fishing.

Ten members of the Red Hawk bass fishing team participated in the tournament, including Bailey and Eggers, as well as Hunter Keller, Carson Eckard, Spencer Black, Caleb Lonca, Wes Smith, Grant Harris, Nathan Smith and Caleb Mackey.

“We were excited to have five Red Hawk teams qualify for the ACA National Championship,” said Catawba Valley head bass fishing coach Angela Mayo. “The entire team has worked hard all year to be ranked where we are and earn those berths to the championship.”

The Red Hawks entered the tournament as the 17th ranked bass fishing program in the country in the latest Bass Pro Shops School of the Year standings.

Bryar Chambers and Clent Blackwood from Wallace State took top honors with 46.91 pounds. Bailey and Eggers two-day total was 32.43 pounds. Chambers and Blackwood may have had an advantage of knowing the lakes on the Tennessee River where the tournament was held. Wallace State Community College is located in Hanceville, Alabama, about 50 miles southeast of Florence.

Hunter Keller and Carson Eckard of CVCC placed 54th with a two-day catch of 20.13 pounds. Wes Smith and Grant Harris were 90th with 13.40.
