Championship Summary
Slammers defeated AE Phi Champs 15-12, 7-15, 20-15

Pitted in this years final were Slammers and AE Phi Champs. Slammers advanced to the final with a win-by-forfeit over Homewreckers, while AE Phi defeated Sigma Kappa 15-3, 15-6 in a semifinal. Down a player in game one of the final, AE Phi found themselves quickly behind 11-1 as Slammers’ Luci Alliance-Valcimond pounded one unstoppable serve after another. AE Phi battled back with two runs of five straight points behind strong play from Kaitlin Campbell and Gillian Helfman to make the score 12-12. Slammers capitalized on the 6-5 player advantage with three straight points to take the first game 15-12.

The second game was a different story. Still down a player, AE Phi rolled to an 8-4 lead behind the play from Courtney Craft, Annemarie Wacha & Christina Sangluolo. AE Phi rolled to a 15-7 victory. At the 3rd game, AE Phi was at full strength. The rally scoring of the rubber game favored Slammers as Alliance-Valcimond dominated with her serve. In no time, Slammers held the 16-5 lead. Once again, though, AE Phi did not quit and battled back to 16-14. Then, with Slammers at match point, Jen Hillman, the AE Phi player who “arrived from the cold,” faulted on her serve to give Slammers the 20-15 championship win.
