Apex accolades for the 2019 season.
2019 was an outstanding season for the Apex Cougars. The guys finished at 16-4 narrowly losing to Cardinal Gibbons in overtime in the State Quarterfinals. The 2019 team was strong in goal, deep at midfield and defense, and featured balanced scoring with three attackmen all scoring 40 goals or more. 2020 looks like another good season as we return a lot of talent to the field including getting help from our JV team which has gone undefeated the past two seasons in a row.
