    Notes: Medalist Todd Vernon (Notre Dame) broke the 18-year BIG EAST Championship record for low 36-holes.. Vernon's three-under 141 (70-71) is one shot better than the previous record of 142, carded by Providence's Matt Zito at the 1979 BIG EAST Championship, held at Willimantic (Conn.) Country Club ... Notre Dame captured its third straight BIG EAST title while Vernon is the fifth Notre Dame golfer to capture medalist honors at a conference championship in the last eight years.
