“My 100th win felt like any other win really,” Barnts said, “I was just glad to get it out of the way. I felt a lot of support from the team, friends, and family when I got it.”

Barnts placed second overall in the tounrament and the score of his match was a 4-2 defeat.

Zach Reikofski ’18 is close to his 100th win and will most likely be the next to achieve this memorable accomplishment.
