Although there is a triple bond present in Benzyne, still the 2 carbon atoms containing the triple bond are sp2 hybridized to maintain the geometry of the ring structure, else the ring would break.
 
Benzyne is formed from benzene via a free radical elimination reaction in which the pi-bond between the two carbon atoms is formed by sp2 hybridized orbitals.
This is the only case in which a pi-bond is formed by hybridized orbitals.
Bro it is a special case and so you should just remember it as an exception and it  will be helpul for you if a a question comes from this part.
