Updated: November 18, 2020

Usually, November is around the time that volleyball season ends in North Carolina. But this is 2020, when nothing is normal. Thus, the Cedar Ridge volleyball team started its season on Thursday night in front of a audience comprised solely of junior varsity players, staff and one media member at Red Wolves Gymnasium. The Red Wolves won 3-0 over Northwood. However, sophomore Julie Altieri has been active during the pandemic. She has played beach volleyball with her club team. Altieri started as a freshman in 2019, when the Red Wolves went 18-6 and finished tied for 3rd in the Big 8 Conference with a 10-4 record. Altieri led the Red Wolves in assists on Tuesday night. The third member of her family to play sports at Cedar Ridge, Altieri will look to defeat defending 3A State Champion Chapel Hill on Thursday night at Smith Middle School. Last season, Altieri led the Red Wolves with 80 assists and also registered 178 digs, which was third on the team.
