Falcons Finish 11th at Tusculum Invitational

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – The University of Montevallo men’s golf team finished 11th in a field of 20 teams at the Tusculum Invitational. The Falcons were the only Peach Belt Conference team at the event but finished ahead of three Southeast Region teams including King, Brevard and Mars Hill. Tusculum won the event while Lincoln Memorial finished three strokes back in second. UM competed with just four golfers so every score counted throughout the tournament. The Falcons were led by junior Aaron Ebert (Huron, Ohio/St. Mary's Central Catholic) who finished tied for 19th overall with a two-round score of 147 just five over par.

Junior Gonzalo Gambertoglio (Cordoba, Argentina/Instituto General San Martin) was just one stroke back from Ebert with a 148. Gambertoglio finished tied for 24th overall.

The Falcons will return to action March 28-29 at the Lander Bearcat Invitational in Greenwood, South Carolina.
