We Are The Champions!
NYU-Poly rallies in epic fashion to topple defending champs Sage College
Brooklyn, NY - It was a game that will be talked about for years to come, as NYU-Poly came storming back, down 14-11 deficit in the fifth set tiebreaker, to win 17-15. In doing they captured the school and program's first-ever Skyline Conference Championship. Meredith Shipman (Sugarland, TX / Eklins HS) recorded 25 kills and four of the final five kills, en route to a unanimous Tournament MVP nod.
It looked as though Sage would keep its reign atop the Skyline, as they went up 14-11, but Shipman recorded back to back kills off serve and then Corey Loupee tallied a kill, getting a friendly tip off the net to tie it 14-14. Then down 15-14, the Jays rallied for three straight points to seal the win and send a frenzy of NYU-Poly fans onto the court.
