Final Spots Claimed for 2024 Adult NCC, dcDragons Men & Women Win Mid-Atlantic Adult RCC

RICHMOND, Va. – The Region C Mid-Atlantic Adult Regional Club Championship (RCC) took place this past weekend at University of Richmond’s Crenshaw Field in Richmond, Va. Over the course of what began as a rainy two days but brightened as the weekend went on, six women’s teams and two men’s squads battled to claim the final spots to the 2024 USFHL Adult National Club Championship (NCC).

On the women’s side, the six teams competing were dcDragons, RVA Tidewater FHC, Delaware FHA, Baltimore FHA (BFHA), Washington FHA (WFHA), and VA Beach Rockfish. After a first full day of play amongst the six teams, dcDragons and WFHA progressed into the crossover round after finishing as the leaders of their respective pools. This left the remaining four teams to battle it out to continue fighting for a spot to Nationals. After some intense play, it was BFHA and Delaware who continued to the next round.

DcDragons and WFHA, both from Washington D.C., matched up in the final, with dcDragons ultimately taking the title in a very close match to defeat the reigning 2023 Adult National Champions, WFHA. With Delaware FHA taking third place, they will join dcDragons and WFHA at the Adult NCC this July 19 to 21 at the University of Delaware in Newark, Del.

On the men’s side, WFHA and dcDragons fought for the single bid from the Mid-Atlantic Region to compete at Nationals. It would be dcDragons who claimed the spot, as the team celebrated that they will be sending both their women’s and men’s teams to the Adult NCC in July.

While players came for the hockey and to earn a spot at Nationals, the camaraderie between competing clubs was felt on the field and even more so at the Saturday night social at Harry’s at Hofheimer.

Thank you to the volunteer tournament organizers, umpires, ball runners, fans, and for RVA Tidewater’s contributions as the host city. We also can’t let this opportunity pass without paying tribute to Fanny Crenshaw, for whom Crenshaw Field was named after, for organizing the United States Field Hockey Association in 1922. It was an honor to play on the field dedicated to a person essential to field hockey in the United States.
