Rush Girls U14 Nike team wins Washington State Champions


May 21, 2013

The weekend of May 4 the Washington Rush Girls U14 Nike team won the Virginia Mason US Youth Soccer Washington State Championship.

This amazing group of 16 young women, which consists of several team members from Lake Stevens and Granite Falls, not only won Washington Rush’s first state championship, but did it by not conceding a goal in all six state cup games—three preliminary games, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the championship game all the way up and through overtime in the final.

After an intense round of penalties that lasted six rounds, they eventually defeated Eastside FC and claimed the state title.

Along with the honor of winning the state title comes the privilege and responsibility for this group of young athletes to represent Rush and the state of Washington at the Far West Regional Championship held in Honolulu, Hawaii June 17-23.
