Carson-Newman University’s Eagle Anglers captured a second-place finish at the Strike King Bassmaster College Classic presented by Bass Pro Shops. The event was held on Watts Bar Reservoir.

Carson-Newman’s Hayden Gaddis and Ben Cully secured the finish behind Auburn University, this year’s tourney winner. Gaddis and Cully are no strangers to being top performers at the tournament, as they walked away as the event’s champions last year.

The field consisted of 12 teams that finished either first or second in the five regular season events, the “2022 Team of the Year,” and defending champions.

“I’m proud of our guys for bringing 13 pounds and 4 ounces of bass back to Thompson Boling Arena to finish in second place in the star-studded field,” said Hunter Sales, C-N’s coach. “It’s a testament to Hayden’s and Ben’s consistent focus this season.”
