Monagle, a graduated senior from Jacksonville University, fired his second straight round of four-under 66 to emerge from the group and win the tournament by four shots.
Kwon shot 70 in Sunday's final round and settled for a runner-up finish, while Brown struggled to a 75 and fell back into a tie for eighth place.
First-round leader Bryce Alley, a junior at the University of Texas-San Antonio, rebounded from a second-found 72 to shoot 69 on Sunday and jump into third place. His 67 led by a stroke after day one of the 54-hole event.
Alley's teammate J.J. Lindsey finished at even-par 210, shooting 70 on day three, and tied for fourth place to round out the top-five with Alabama sophomore Steven Setterstrom.
