DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Megan Corbett (Danbury, Conn./Danbury) finished 18th to lead the Mount St. Mary's women's golf team to an eighth-place finish at the Northeast Conference (NEC) Women's Golf Championships on Saturday.

Corbett, who is the only player in program history to notch a Top-10 finish at the championships, posted an 87 in the first round, a 78 in the second round and an 86 in the final round to card a three-round score of 251 and finish in 18th place, 26 strokes behind the medalist. It marks the seventh time in program history a player has finished in the Top-18 in the tournament to earn a flag. Corbett joins Shannon Prettyman as the only two players to notch two Top-18 standings and Corbett also owns the top finish in program history after finishing eighth in 2009. The senior now owns the two-best marks in program history with her 78 in the second round on Friday and a 71 in the second round at the 2009 championships while her 165 two-round total is the third-best mark and her third-round score is good for fourth-best in program history at the NEC Championships.
