This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is senior wrestler James Rosati-Brown. This season, Rosati-Brown is 10-0. Last week, he went 4-0. That included a pinfall of East Chapel Hill’s William Weis in just 20 seconds. He also pinned Khamani Dixon of Northern Durham as the Red Wolves won all four of its dual matches against East Chapel Hill, Eastern Alamance, Northern Durham and Vance County. Two weeks ago, Rosati-Brown edged Orange’s Matthew Smith-Breeden 4-3 at Orange High. Earlier that night, Rosati-Brown pinned Southeast Guilford’s Ryan Murphy in 2:35. He opened the year by pinning Northwood’s Nate Davis in 1:57. The pandemic has robbed Rosati-Brown of something he loves, which is wrestling in individual tournaments like the Jim King/Orange Invitational at Orange High, the Buccaneer Invitational at Bartlett-Yancey, the Red Wolf Invitational at Cedar Ridge and the Tiger Holiday Classic at Chapel Hill. With the 3A Mideast Regionals set for next month, Rosati-Brown hopes to end his career in the state tournament. He is the winningest active wrestler at Cedar Ridge with 65 victories. On Tuesday, Cedar Ridge will host a tri-meet with Chapel Hill and Southern Alamance as Rosati-Brown looks to remain undefeated for 2021.
