Former Pioneer Jennings Rex played for UNC-Charlotte on Sunday in the NCAA Men's Division I National Championship game against the University of North Carolina at

Regions Parks in Hoover, Ala.
The Tar Heels captured their second national championship (the first one came in 2001) by blanking the 49ers 1-0 in the finals. Rex, a junior, played in 19 games this season and started eight times for the 49ers. He scored five goals, including two game winners, this season for 11 points.
Rex, a four-year varsity player at Watauga High, scored a school-record 40 goals his senior year in 2008, snapping the old mark of 39 goals originally set by Patrick Murphy in 1999.
Rex graduated from WHS in the spring of 2009; his father Art Rex was an assistant coach and then the head coach at Appalachian State University. His father coached at ASU from 1981-97, and his dad was inducted into the ASU Hall of Fame on September 8, 2007.
