May 21st and 22nd marked the weekend that Apex battled to win the Pop-N-Flo National Duals!

Apex Wrestling School Team I went 5-0 over the weekend and defeated IronHorse (NJ) 28-25 in the finals!

Match 1: Apex defeated Cedar Cliff, PA 69-6

Match 2: Apex defeated VHW 48-6. 

 VHW is 3X World Champion Vougar Arajau’s team from Long Island.  This was an intense match as wrestlers from both teams have trained together many times before.  Many of the matches were close going into the 3rd where the superior conditioning of the Apex wrestlers proved to be the difference in the match.  The featured bout was 194 where NJ State Champion James Fox had a much anticipated rematch with NY State Champion Joe Kavanaugh.  The two have met before at Senior Nationals where James won via DQ after two flagarant elbows to the face while leading 6-0.  This time James was able to open up more on his feet and was able to earn the pin while up 8 points.

Match 3: Quarterfinals Apex defeated Turks Head, PA 38-19

Turks Head was coming off a dominate 67-6 win over Silverback WC.  Apex was able to sepereate themselves behind pins by Anthony Ashnault, James Fox and Joe Cummings.

Match 4: Semi-finals Apex defeated Shore Thing 34-21.

Match 5: Finals Apex defeated Iron Horse 28-25
