It was Temple's 18th consecutive regional championship--an unparalleled national achievement. The members of the championship teams are Marian Braccia (3L) and Justin Oshana (3L); and Tiffany Gainer (2L) and Brad Terebelo (2L). In gaining its 11th regional sweep, Temple teams defeated teams from Dickinson, Duquesne, Penn., Pitt., Rutgers-Newark, Villanova, Widener-Delaware, and Widener-Harrisburg.
