Led by medalist Ryan McCormick, St. John's won the Big East Championship on Tuesday, the school's 10th league title but its first since 1989.

The Red Storm shot 18-over 882 for three rounds at Callawassie Island in Okatie, S.C., 10 strokes better than Marquette. DePaul placed third at 35 over.

"I am proud of my guys," head coach Frank Darby, in his 20th season at the Queens, N.Y., school, said in a university news release.

McCormick, a senior, won the medal by eight shots. At 5-under 211, he was the only player in the field to finish under par.

“It’s the best feeling I have had as a collegiate golfer,” said McCormick, of Middleton, N.J. “I am so happy for Coach Darby. He deserves a Big East championship by now. For all of the players on his teams that didn’t win a title, this one is for them, too.”
