This season, Savannah Christian Prep and three Richmond Hill High School bass fishing teams have hooked Georgia High School Association bass fishing qualifying spots. The Savannah Christian bass fishing team of Mathew Gunn and Luke Gunn pulled in another win, back-to-back qualifiers, at the third GHSA bass fishing qualifier at West Point Lake on March 18, 2023. 


The Raider duo finished first out of 246 boats. This first-place finish makes it back-to-back wins for Matt and Luke this season. Per Matthew on Instagram, "We had a wild weekend and weather, but we stayed focused and got it done!"
