Congratulations are in order as three Alaska Rush teams - 00G Nike, 99G Nike, 97G Nike - captured the hardware at the 2012 Far North Invitational Tournament. The annual midsummer classic, this year held between July 12-15 at Kincaid Park in Anchorage, Alaska, is the last major in-state tournament heading into State Cup, held during the first week of August.
'The Far North Tournament is a good warm-up for our teams going into State Cup,' said Alaska Rush Technical Director Jason Leonardis. 'It's a really good opportunity for the team's coaches to see the where their teams are in terms of their overall yearly plan and make minor tweaks here and there going into State next month.'
'I'm really proud of our girls for playing they way they have. They've worked hard all year and it's nice to be rewarded for the time and energy spent playing soccer.'
