The host team went on to win the whole tournament, defeating Manhatten in five games, 3-2 in the championship match. Harvard has never won the title before.
Dartmouth fell to Brown, 1-3, in the Big Green's final match, determining third place. McKinley led the team in kills and digs, tallying 13 and 30, respectively. Outside hitter co-Captain Carmen Schmitt '97 helped out her team with three service aces and middle blocker Danra Kazenski '99 and outside hitter Erin Clarke '99 gave the team five and four blocks.
