MUSCLE SHOALS, AL –- Freshman Pablo Gerboles-Parrilla is tied for second place, just two strokes behind the first-round leader, after day one of the 2012 Sun Belt Conference Championships.

North Texas also shares the lead atop the team standings, with Middle Tennessee State, at 10-over-par 298. Only 11 strokes separate third place (South Alabama, 306) and eighth (Troy, 317), with the Owls checking in at seventh, at a team total of 316.
Fellow freshman Bradford Kidd has the next lowest score for FAU, carding 15 pars in his round of 77. He is tied for 16th place, just two strokes out of the top 10.
