Two Phila-area clubs — WC Eagles FHC and Mystx FHC — ranked in the Top-10 of the nation’s clubs in the U16 and U19 divisions as released by USA Field Hockey last week. WC Eagles maintained its #1 ranking in the U16 division and finished #2 in the U19 division while Mystx FHC ranked #9 in the U16 division and #10 in the U19 division. X-Calibur FHC fell just below the Top-10, claiming the #11 ranking in U16 and #13 in U19.
In addition, three other area clubs ranked in the Top 25% of clubs nationwide including: #17 Viper FHC and #34 Horizon FHC in U16 division (among 125 clubs), and #29 Horizon FHC and #31 True North Hockey Academy in the U19 division (among 150 clubs nationwide.)
According to a USA Field Hockey posting, the objective of the club ranking is to: develop annual rankings by club and age group; help clubs grow by providing a competitive platform; and help USA Field Hockey events and sanctioned events grow.
