For the first time since 2007, the Brookdale women's tennis team won the Region XIX team crown.
With an overall score of 12 points, the Jersey Blues edged out a tough Gloucester County Col-lege, which finished in second with 10.
The bout of the weekend came in the number two doubles final, which was the last match.
The match-up came between the Brookdale team of Olga Kanevskaya (Marlboro) and Natalie DeSabato (Allentown) against Gloucester's Katilyn Forte and Kelly Bates, who had won the No. 1 one singles title.
The Jersey Blues would need to win the match to take the title.
A loss would notch them even with Gloucester for the match, along with a share of the crown.
Brookdale found itself behind after losing the first set 7-5 only to battle back and even the match by winning the second set 6-4.
Nothing short of dramatic, the tiebreaker set was a back-and-forth nailbiter, with the Jersey Blues coming out victorious in the end, winning 7-5.
Earlier in the day, the No. 1 doubles team of Heidi Denn (Old Bridge) and Lauren Abate (Sea Girt) won the Region XIX title handily, with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over the Ocean County College team.
Brookdale saw a pair of individual Region champs crowned in number two singles, when DeSabato defeated Ocean's Kaitlyn Scrudato in three sets and Abate dominating over Gloucester's Avery Forte, 7-6, 6-1.
After becoming Region XIX champions, the squad will travel to Tucson, Arizona to compete for the NJCAA Division III championship in May.
