Sophomore Marisol Doglioli finished with a six-under 210 to win the individual title, and led the LIU Brooklyn women's golf team to its third straight Northeast Conference Championships victory in three years.
Competing at the par-72 LPGA International, the Blackbirds, ahead by two strokes after the second round, shot a 296 on day three, their best round of the tournament. They finished 26 strokes ahead of second-place Saint Francis U. with a three-day total of 898. Following the Red Flash was Fairleigh Dickinson, Sacred Heart, Robert Morris, Wager, Central Connecticut, and St. Francis U.
Doglioli only increased her lead in the third round, after coming in with first and second round scores of 71 and 73. She shot a six-under 66 in her final round to win by 13 strokes over RMU's Haley Morell, and was the only player under par for the tournament. Doglioli finished with six birdies, with three straight on holes three through five, and two straight to close out the round.
She was also four under on par-5 scoring, and three under on par-4 for the tournament, while recording 11 total birdies.
Junior Brianna Maynard knocked five strokes off of her second round score to finish with three-over 75 on the afternoon, and a total of 225. She moved up two spots to finish in a tie for third place, and birdied three holes in the final round.
Also finishing in the top-10 were Victoria Fagan and Cristina Felip. Fagan was eighth after carding a 79 in her final round for a three-day total of 232. Felip climbed five spots to ninth place after recording a four-over 76 for the second day in a row and finished with a total of 235. Rounding out the field for the Blackbirds was Alice Boothroyd, who placed 26th with a total of 245, carding an 83 in the third round.
With the championship, the Blackbirds earn the NEC's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, beginning with the regional competition, May 8-10.
