Competing at Nelson Mandela University, the titleholders withstood a strong challenge from the local team to defeat them 4-2 in the tournament decider.
UJ coach Mike Bester said the final had been close, but the strength of their women’s team made the difference in the end.
“We lost a very close match at No 3 in the men’s line-up and also at No 1, but won the No 2 encounter to take the win,” he said. “Our ladies won all their matches.
“Our strength is the depth that we have in our squad, and I said before the tournament this was going to be a collective effort. And that’s the way it turned out.”
Bester said the team remained motivated to do well despite their long run of success.
“They were ecstatic after the final and are always focused on trying to maintain the record and to set themselves further goals.”
He added that the key element in their success was the consistency and dedication they showed in training.
At the conclusion of the week, UJ No 1 Alexa Pienaar, who retained her individual title, was named in the USSA team to compete in the World University Championships in Birmingham in September.
UJ No 2 Kacey-Leigh Dodd will play Hayley Ward, of Madibaz, to decide the second place in the USSA women’s team.
