We would like to congratulate all the Iowa Rush teams and players that participated in the Kohl’s Cup the weekend of June 8-9th. Below are some highlights and pictures of teams that participated from Iowa Rush. Congratulations again and GO RUSH!
U10 Girls Roadrunners, Coach Alex Langstraat - The u10 Iowa Rush Roadrunners won their bracket at the 2013 fall Kohls Cup. They all stepped up and played their hearts out against some excellent competition. Nobody gave up, and they left everything on the field. It was fun to watch!

U11 Girls Ankeny United, Coach Richard Harris and Steve Hoogensen - The Ankeny United (Girls U11) team went 2-1 in pool play for the Kohls Cup U11-U12 girls division. Saturday we went 2-0, the families had a fun picnic between the games and the girls had a hoot. Sunday we played a stout U12 team from Mahaska County for the right to advance out of the pool play to the championship game and lost that game.
U12 Boys Ankeny Eagles A12C, Coach Mike Patkin - Finished 2nd in the tournament. They were 2 - 1 in pool play. They won their semi-final in a sudden death shootout. Game ended 1-1, after 1st round of shoot out it was still tied. Mahaska missed their first shot and we made ours in the sudden death.
The Eagles lost in the finals to Pleasant Hill, 2 - 1. It was a very exciting finish, with a couple of missed opportunities to tie it up.

U14 Girls Ankeny Thunder A14U, Coach Mike Patkin – Placed in 2nd place in Kohl's cup. They finished pool play 3 - 0 and lost in the finals 3-1 to Pella. Luckily the weather was cloudy and cool, because they played all 4 games with only 12 players.
