(U18 Nike Boys Celebrate their 5th State Cup Championship)
The U18 Nike Boys from Tennessee Rush have had great success in State Cup over the course of their youth careers. A 2-1 victory over the weekend was enough to give the boys their 5th State Cup title and puts an exclimation point on the boys senior year in the club. “This was unbelievable,” said goalkeeper Ethan Healy. “We wanted to end our senior year as champions, and we’ll always remember our friends and what we accomplished.” The State Cup win ensures the 18's a trip to the US Youth Soccer Southern Regionals that will be held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee June 16-22.
The 18's will be joined at Regionals by the U15 Nike boys. The 15's lost a tough 1-0 decision in the State Cup final but will advance to Regionals based on their efforts in the Region III Premier League. The 15's success in the Premier League will also allow them to play in the National League next season
