Four former teammates at Apex High School who maintained a winning reputation with the Cougars have moved on to the college level with aspirations of establishing winning traditions at the collegiate level.

So too has Panther Creek’s Claire Wach (2012 graduate) who had 13 goals and four assists in 13 games with Lenoir-Rhyne.

Cawley Bromley: Bromley, a 2011 Apex graduate now at Virginia Tech, finished up her sophomore season.

Bromley saw action in 10 games this season with the Hokies, one being in the first week against No.7-ranked Duke. She finished the season with two goals and four assists.

In two seasons, Bromley has three goals against ACC Triangle teams – two against Duke and one against UNC-Chapel Hill.

Katie Burnet: Burnet (2012), who was an All-American and All-Conference selection at Apex, thrived in her first season with Meredith College.

She played in 15 games last season with the Avenging Angels, scoring 55 goals and 17 assists total.

Asia Moore: Goalie Asia Moore (2011) is at Jacksonville University.

Courtney and Katie McLaughlin: Two sisters who both contributed to Apex state title teams, Katie and Courtney McLaughlin have thrived while playing for the High Point Panthers, who made the NCAA postseason this year.

The eldest, Courtney, was named a Mills Scholar-Athlete this past season – her senior year.

In her junior season, she started all 19 games for the Panthers, tallied 30 ground balls and caused 17 turnovers. She was also named second-team all-conference on defense in her first season with High Point, after transferring from UNC-Chapel Hill following her freshman season.
