Cary, NC - Apex built a big lead early and coasted to a 24-3 victory over Charlotte Myers Park in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association's second annual state women's lacrosse championship Saturday afternoon at the WakeMed Soccer Park.
The Cougars, completing a perfect 20-0 season, sprinted to a 14-3 halftime lead, dominating play, and then shut the Mustangs out in the second half.
Senior Cawley Bromley of Apex was named the championship Most Valuable Player. She scored three goals, running her total to 49 on the season, and handed out seven assists to help lead her team to victory.
It was the second meeting of the season between the two, as Apex had beaten Myers Park 17-9 in a regular-season contest. Myers Park finished the season with a 15-4 record.
The Mustangs coach Sasha Vedock played in high school at Apex and helped her team to the 2007-08 state championships.
Apex won the last three independent state tournaments before the NCHSAA actually sanctioned a lacrosse final for the first time in 2010. In last year's inaugural NCHSAA championship, Charlotte Catholic edged Wilmington Hoggard 12-11 in the women's title game.
The lacrosse state championships are currently conducted as an "open" tournament, with all classifications competing for a single crown.
