The Syracuse team led by Kelly Sheptock, freshman from Berwick, Pennsylvania and Kevin Mata, senior from Bronx, New York, jumped out to a 15 to 0 lead winning the first three matches, but UConn Senior Darcy Rose, from Chaplin, Connecticut snapped the Syracuse streak securing the first 5 points for her team, “The Connecticut Wrecking Crew” with a victory over Kelly Sheptock. In the subsequent matches the students from UConn: Will Dean, Jaclyn Paride, Darcy Rose and Brandon Cerretani, junior from Howell, New Jersey shut out the students from SU winning all of their remaining matches.
