Yardley’s Mac Rushing named to National Junior Ultimate Frisbee Team

by Matt Snider

“When people think of Ultimate, there’s always a lot of predetermined ideas about what it actually is,” says Pennsbury High School senior James Rushing. “They often think it is just a bunch of people sitting in a field somewhere throwing around a Frisbee. It is so much more than that.”

If there is someone to talk about what Ultimate (originally known as Ultimate Frisbee) is, it’s someone who is putting together a resume in the sport like James Rushing. Called “Mac” to those who know him, Rushing is one of only 24 young men recently named to the USA National Junior Ultimate team. The team will compete this summer with 40 other teams from over 20 countries in the World Junior Ultimate Championships in Poland.
