Top Ranked Montevallo Win the 2022 Barnett Reservoir Rumble

RIDGELAND, MS – Tournament competition has concluded and all the prizes have been awarded to the Top 20 finishers at the 2022 Barnett Reservoir Rumble. Hundreds of the nation’s top collegiate bass fishing anglers competed for two days on a windy Barnett Reservoir in Ridgeland, Mississippi, at this nationally televised event, in an effort to claim their share of more than $20,000 in prizes and contingencies. Day one saw a packed leaderboard with several of the top-ranked schools in the nation in the Top 10 – which ensured a shootout was in store for the final day with cameras rolling to catch the action.

As day two unfolded the wind became a key part of the day, making it hard for teams to run around the famed reservoir in Mississippi. However, the winds didn’t stop the number one ranked University of Montevallo pairing of Merritt Arnold and Chance Schwartz from taking home the win with a two-day total of 30.15 pounds. Coming in 2nd were fellow University of Montevallo teammates Adam Carroll and Trey Dickert, and rounding out the top three was the Adrian College duo of Matthew Davis and Dalton Mollenkopf.
