Vertimax Fundraiser Update

The Apex High basketball is a little over halfway toward their goal of raising enough money to purchase the VertiMax system. With off season basketball workouts ramping up, Coach Bristol and Coach Neal would like to purchase the VertiMax system soon so it can help their teams this season.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to your Apex HS Basketball progreams.  Thank you to the Apex families who have already donated to this effort.

You can learn more about the Vertimax and the Apex Basketball fundraising effort here on the Cougar Club web site.

A Dancing King

By Olivia Hair, Apex Cougar Club AOIT Intern                                    August 30th

On the evening of August 28th, 2015 a star was born at the Apex High School Varsity football game vs. Wake Forest.

Luckily, I caught the star pre-fame, and he showed me a few of his tricks. Not only is Chase Graves an exceptional dancer, but he also seemingly defies Newton’s First Law with his football- balancing skills. I was thoroughly impressed.

Chase's Balancing Skills

Halftime rolled around and Chase prepared to conquer the Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek “Envy of the Game” dance-off. Max Laing, a senior at Apex High School, proved a worthy opponent. With DJ Snake’s Get Low blasting, the crowd went wild for Chase’s moves. In a later interview with our winner, Chase credits his success to his mother’s advice to, “..move, and then just start dancing along!”

Thank you Massage Envy!The future star


Our champion received a Massage Envy Apex Beaver Creek Gift Card. The Cougar Club offers a huge thank you to Massage Envy for their support of Apex High School athletics and giving our school the opportunity to be a part of their Envy of the Game dance-off!

In our interview following the big win, Chase mentioned that he is “gonna be a star one day”. There you have it folks; a high-school football game with an appearance by a future dance-star.
