Monifieth's Heather Munro, finished T10 in a field of 84 at the Eagle Invitational college tournament and her performance helped Elon to win the team title by a runaway seventeen strokes.

Munro, a freshman student at Elon University, North Carolina, peaked early in the 54-hole event with a 72 but she had to settle for subsequent rounds of 78 and 80 for a total of 230 over the par-72 course at Stoneybrook Golf Club, Fort Myers in southwest Florida.

Munro struggled in an outward half of six-over 42 with a triple bogey 8 at the second hole and a double bogey 6 at the sixth. But she kept her nerve and battled on, scoring birdies at the 4th, 11th and 12th. Heather came home in 38.

There were three other Brits in the field - Georgia Price of the host university, Florida Gulf Coast, and the Arkansas State University pair of Megan Garland from Goole, Yorkshire and Oxfordshire's Abi Laker.

Georgia, from Bude in England, finished eighth on 228 with scores of 75, 77 and 76.

Megan finished T13 on 231 (80-73-78) while Abi had a tournament she will wish to forget, finishing 73rd on 264 with rounds of 80, 91 and 93. Abi is a much better player than these scores suggests and she will just have to put it down as a bad day at the office - and move on.

The tournament's individual honours were shared on 221 by joint winners Athika Ruenreong (Toledo) (75-72-74) and Tiffany Chan (Daytona State) (74-73-74).

Elon University had four players in the final top 10, which explains why they won the team title by 17 strokes from Toledo and Daytona State who were joint runners-up in a field of 14 teams.
