This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is junior third baseman Takia Nichols. In addition, we’re introducing our first retro pick of the season. For the week starting 3/28, the Red Wolf of the Week is shortstop Ava Lowry. Nichols is the all-time home run leader in Cedar Ridge history, softball or baseball, with 18. Last week against Chapel Hill, she added to the total with a lead off homer in a 20-0 Red Wolf win. Nichols leads the team with a .667 average. Despite being walked 13 times, Nichols is still tied for the team lead with 14 hits and 16 RBIs. Lowry also had 14 hits and 16 RBIs. On March 29, she hit two home runs against East Chapel Hill in an 18-5 win. Lowry has already committed to play at North Carolina Wesleyan. Nichols and Lowry play on the same side of the infield and have formed a tight bond. So much so that they wanted to do this interview together because they enjoy each other’s company. Cedar Ridge will return to action tonight at Northern Durham. The Red Wolves will host the Knights on Wednesday night in Hillsborough. Congratulations to two very deserving Cedar Ridge Red Wolves of the Week: Takia Nichols and Ava Lowry.
