MORGANTON, N.C. – The Brevard College men’s golf team sits in ninth place after 36 holes of play at the Donald Ross Intercollegiate, 32 strokes off the pace set by Jacksonville University.
Brevard is one of just two Division II institutions in the 10-team field. The Tornados finished Monday’s two rounds just five strokes behind fellow Division II competitor Saint Leo, which wrapped up play with a 21-over 581. The tournament is hosted by Appalachian State University.
Luis Vega led the Tornados on the day, firing a one-over 71 in the first round before finishing the day at four-over par with a second-round 73. Vega finished the afternoon tied for 21st place. Oskar Lundgren, who currently sits in a tie for 25th place at five-over par, carded the low round of the day for the Tornados as he wrapped up his second round at an even 70. Trym Falch and Sebastian Strehl ended the day in a tie for 47th place at 11 strokes over par, four strokes behind Alejandro Montanes.
Jacksonville leads the tournament on the strength of a career day from Franck Medale, who sits atop the leaderboard at 11 under after firing a first round 63, seven strokes under par. The Dolphins were the only team to finish the day under par, as Division I foes Wofford and Presbyterian are tied for second at eight strokes over.
The Tornados sit nine strokes ahead of Longwood, which plays in the Division I Big South Conference. The Lancers were unable to recover from a first-round 302 and currently sit at 35 strokes over par.
After playing two rounds on Monday, tournament play wraps up with 18 holes on Tuesday.
