At the NCAA Championships in March, he earned the second and third All-America finishes of his career, leading the Seawolves to eighth place in the final team standings.
The men’s ‘at-large’ category encompasses student-athletes in 12 sports – fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, riflery, skiing, swimming, tennis, wrestling, volleyball, water polo.
Along with his success on the trails, Ebner posted a 3.76 overall grade-point average as a double-major in marketing and finance. He graduated earlier this month with cum laude honors.
