Updated: November 18, 2020

There was finally a sense of normalcy on Tuesday night in Hillsborough. The Cedar Ridge volleyball team became the first squad to return to action since the pandemic started in March. The Red Wolves started its 14-game regular season with a 3-0 win over Northwood. Senior libero Marlee Rakouskas started under new head coach Fiona Cunningham as the Red Wolves won on scores of 25-22, 25-14, 25-23. Rakouskas was named the player of the match. Despite the pandemic, Rakouskas has remained busy on the volleyball court this summer with her club team. Last season, Cedar Ridge finished 3rd in the Big 8 Conference and was the only team to defeat Chapel Hill, who went on to win the 3A State Championship. On Thursday night, Cedar Ridge will travel to face Chapel Hill. The match will be held at Smith Middle School, but fans won’t be permitted due to COVID-19 restrictions.
