Vote for Montevallo Alumni in GSC Virtual Competition

As a celebration of the accomplishments of student-athletes and institutions in the Gulf South Conference, the conference office has put together a bracket featuring 32 of the most impressive, potentially unbreakable records in league history.

Two University of Montevallo alumni are featured in the competition and have been continuously advancing thanks to fan support. Darbi Duke set a record with six stolen bases in a single game in the sport of softball. Jonathan Maloney scored a record 24 game-winning goals in his career in the sport of men’s soccer.

Keep voting for our Falcons on Twitter. Visit the GSC website for additional information.
