El Dorado Hills has its first-ever Little League Intermediate State Champs.

After winning the CA Div 2 50/70 Little League Championship in Chowchilla, the District 54 team of 13- to 14-year-olds, all from El Dorado Hills, travelled to Nogales, Ariz., to defeat the SoCal Intermediate Little League team and be named the California State Champions while competing in Arizona for a coveted spot in the Intermediate Little League World Series. Falling just short in the final championship game in front of more than 3,000 local fans, Rush missed its goal of representing the West in the Intermediate 50/70 Little League World Series in Livermore.

The El Dorado Hills team Rush, managed by Ken Smith, has achieved more success in its division this season than any other Little League team from their community or district since the addition of the Intermediate 50/70 Division of Little League.

Players are Jackson Slaughter, Sammy Parham, Hayden Nabers, Brayden Tester, Trent Smith, Joel Yang, Jordan Mayeda, Nate Hansen, Zach Reyes, Sam Copely and Matt Grimmenstein. The team is coached by Chris Hansen and Mark Parham. Team manager is Ken Smith.
