In his first season with the program, Corrigan helped W&L achieve a 15-5 overall record while claiming the ODAC regular season title with a perfect 9-0 league mark. The 2018 season featured a high-scoring offense that averaged 13.95 goals per game and set a then school record for goals scored in a season (279).
