• • •
Seton Hall is the first women's golf champion in a new era for the Big East.
The Pirates won the Big East Championship by seven strokes at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., Saturday. The team called it an accomplished goal four years in the making, and it came in a year after several teams departed the conference to start play in the American Athletic Conference.
Seton Hall shot a 64-over 928 on the par-72, 6,984-yard course, beating out Georgetown, which finished as runner up at 71-over 935.
St. John's (73 over), Xavier (75 over), Creighton (108 over) and Butler (115 over) rounded out the six-team field.
Seton Hall placed two golfers in the top three, with Erin McClure and Megan Tenhundfeld tying for second place with three other competiors. Each player shot a 13-over 229 for the Pirates, three shots back from the leader.
St. John's senior Harin Lee won the Big East individual title, finishing the tournament at 10-over 226.
