Apex High’s fall sports teams have been very successful this season. The class of 2016 is the biggest to ever pass through this school, and they have lots of athletic talent. The senior class athletes will be greatly missed next year.
The football team, coached by Mr. Robert Graham, an automotive teacher, is 3-4 and on the rise. They stay focused on improving every day and returning to the playoffs this year.
The soccer team, coached by Mr. Kevin Todd, history teacher, is 16-0-1 and ranked number one in the state and country. They recently won the Wake County Cup.
Women’s tennis, coached by Mrs. Lynn Thomas, is 12-4 and tied for second place in the conference due to a postponed game. They are now looking to win and advance in their conference standings.
The volleyball team, coached by Ms. Emily Whitsett, English teacher, is 14-6 and 11-4 in conference play. They look to return to the playoffs again this year.
The Cross Country team, coached by Mr. Mark Trezona, chemistry teacher, Mr. Roy Cooper, history teacher, and Ms. Carly Brown, history and physcology teacher. The team has enjoyed its own success this year in different meets. Senior Ben Savino and senior Derek Duin are the top runners for the guys. Senior Allison Rosen and sophomore Calli Parlier are the top runners for the girls. Ms. Carly Brown says that the most memorable moment was when Ben won at the Friday Night Lights competition. Ben won by a longshot, and the whole team and coaches were inspired and cheering him on. Brown also thinks very highly of the class of 2016, but that does not mean the team cannot be successful next year. The success has come from the individual from hard work and training as in every sport. “We (herself and the class of 2016) all started on this team together, they have been with me all my four years coaching this team and I am really going to miss them next year.” Brown thinks very highly of the whole team, but she has enjoyed making memories and seeing the improvement over these past four years.
