Cedar Ridge would rather be playing for a volleyball state championship this weekend. Alas, it won’t.
The Asheboro Blue Comets defeated the Red Wolves 3-1 on Tuesday night. It was Cedar Ridge’s first home loss of the year. It turned out to be a good night for underdogs in the 3-A regional finals.
In the 3-A Western Regional Final, 4th seeded South Iredell surprised 2nd-seeded West Henderson in four sets. The Blue Comets will meet the Vikings on Saturday at noon for the state championship in the Raleigh Convention Center.
After capturing the Big 8 Conference, district and sectional championship, the Red Wolves end the season with a mark of 24-4. They had won 17 straight before Tuesday’s loss, but they accomplished more than any other Cedar Ridge team since moving up to 3-A.
Senior Courtney Eckmann discussed the loss to the Blue Comets and what she will remember from her senior year.
