A triple bond has a hybridization of sp because the central atom (which will have one triple bond and one other area of electron density) creates two areas of electron density, which has the hybridization of sp.
When you're finding the hybridization, the focus should be on the number of regions of electron density not the bond order. With that said, a triple bond generally indicates sp hybridization because a triple bond generally means there are two regions of electron density for a completed octet.
