COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The RUSH under-19 division has risen 18 spots to No. 13 in the latest USA Field Hockey national club rankings. With 270 points, RUSH is the highest ranking club not just in California, but west of the Mississippi.
Rankings are based on performances from 2013 to present at four different USA Field Hockey sanctioned events. Those events, which vary in the number of points possible, include: Festival (100), Disney Showcase (120), Regional Club Championships (45), and the National Club Championships (200).
RUSH earned their ranking without ever competing in the regional and national club championships, but will participate starting this year. The 2015 under-19 Region 11 Club Championship will take place May 3-4, at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
RUSH under-16 division is also on the rise in the national rankings. RUSH under-16 ranks No. 89 after competing in their first ever point supported event at the 2015 Disney Showcase. Having been un-ranked before the showcase, their new national standing is considered a 35 spot jump, according to USA Field Hockey. The change is also seen as one of the biggest moves up the national rankings among all under-16 clubs this year.
