Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week: Kady Watkins

Updated: February 15, 2020

This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is junior wrestler Kady Watkins. Last week, Watkins became the first female wrestler in Hillsborough history to reach the semifinals of a state championship. Watkins defeated Swansboro’s Madeline Copley 9-6 in the 120B-pound division. Watkins earned ten victories this season for Cedar Ridge. She got involved in wrestling when she realized that cheerleading wasn’t her taste. Even though she’s competed in track & field, wrestling is her top sport. In fact, her younger sister Emma is also a wrestler at Cedar Ridge and the Red Wolves wrestling team had four female grapplers on the squad this year. Now that Kady’s wrestling season has ended, she will focus on track & field this spring. Then it will be back to training for the start of wrestling season next fall, where Watkins aims to place in next February’s women’s state championships.
