The Apex Men’s Lacrosse team will travel to Charlotte this weekend for the 3rd Annual Champions Challenge benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. Each year StickWithUs invites the Men’s and Women’s State Champions and Runners-up for both public and private schools to participate in this great day of lacrosse.
This year our 2015 4A Champion Cougars are matched up against the 2015 3A Runner-up Marvin Ridge. This match is scheduled for this Saturday, April 2nd at 6PM at Charlotte Catholic HS (rain site is Ardrey Kell HS).
The Apex Men’s Lacrosse team is once again making a contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project with money raised by the players mostly through sponsorship’s earned for competing in the Apex Turkey Trot last November. The team is honored to make a donation of $3,700 this year to the Wounded Warrior Project. As a whole, this event expects to raise over $20,000 for this worthy cause.
As participants in one of the two marquee games Saturday, the Cougars (7-0/5-0) will be wearing custom uniforms in Apex colors and with a US Army theme that includes the players name and numbers. The players will be able to keep their jersey as a memento of the competition.
The team had two practices Wednesday as well as team dinner at Anna’s Pizza. After a morning practice Thursday the team will relax a bit at their annual bowling tournament that afternoon. Final practice and preparations are Friday before heading to Charlotte via charter bus on Saturday. Come on over to Charlotte for a great afternoon of lacrosse or tune into TWC for one of the replays.
Good Luck Cougars!
