You need to use the correct type for what you hold in the List. The List does not hold type APCTerritory

try this:

                  territoryArray  = (APCTerritory []) territoryList.toArray(new APCTerritory[0]);

though I suspect you have a different type of object strored in your list

Yes, so you'd need something like
String[] territories = (String[])territoryList.toArray(new String[territoryList.size()]);
