SPark Field Hockey's U16 girls field hockey team has earned a qualifying spot for the 2013 National Club Championship (NCC)—where the top 16 club teams in the country will be vying for the championship title.
Club teams from all over the country have competed in Regional Championships in order to qualify and move on towards the premier National Championship event.
This year, the area's Regional Club Championship was held at Garrison Forest School in Owings Mills on May 11 and 12. Eight of the region's best clubs duked it out for a first or second place finish in order to automatically advance to the National Club Championship.
Clubs H20 and SPark will move on after placing first and second place.
Coaches Tom Jester and Moira Leavitt lead the roster of 17 field players and two goal keepers into the championship on Mother's Day.
"The accomplishment this weekend was impressive, we set out to qualify as our goal and we did it," said Coach Jester
