Champions crowned at Virginia Rush Ralph Downey Memorial Day Classic

The 2015 Virginia Rush Ralph Downey Memorial Day Classic celebrated its largest edition to date with over 190 squads over the weekend, with 190 teams from seven U.S. States and Canada competing at three complexes in Virginia Beach.

Eighteen clubs from four states – Virginia, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania – were represented among the tournament’s 38 division champions. Thirteen Beach FC (VA) teams claimed division titles, eight more than any other club. Host club Virginia Rush also fared well winning five divisions, while Herndon Youth Soccer (VA), FC Milan (VA)  and Old Dominion FC (VA) each captured two.

FC Casa (MD), Western Branch SC (VA), FCV Ashburn (VA), FC Virginia, Dillsburg Area SC (PA), Eleftheria Pancyprian Youth Soccer (NY), Richmond Strikers (VA), Calverton SC (MD), Central Virginia United, Burke Athletic Club (VA), Academy Futbol FC (VA) St. Mary’s Soccer (MD) and Lee Mt. Vernon SC (VA) each had a team win a division as well.

Virginia Rush Tournament Director Stephen Holmes said he hopes to continue growing the event in coming years, after expanding from one to three field complexes in 2015. Along with the Hampton Roads Soccer Complex, the tournament utilized two other nearby venues in Princess Anne Athletic Complex and Virginia Beach SportsPlex.

“We definitely want to continue to expand, our fields are very close so it’s appealing for coaches that have multiple teams,” Holmes said. “With all of our fields about a mile apart, coaches have flexibility to be at all the different games.”
