The Cedar Ridge baseball team had a memorable senior night on Friday. The Red Wolves rolled past Northwood 6-1 to complete a season sweep of the Chargers in Hillsborough. Senior Cather Tucker Cothran went 2-for-3, ending a week where he hit .428 over two games. Cothran had base hits in the first and third innings. In each frame, the Red Wolves scored three runs. First baseman Aidan McAllister, a junior, has been among the most consistent hitters for the Red Wolves this season. Against Orange, McAllister hit two home runs in as many innings. The win over Northwood was the first time ever that the Red Wolves swept the season series from the Chargers since they’ve been rivals in the Big 8 Conference. Though this year’s unusual format will keep the Red Wolves from making the state playoffs, Cothran and the rest of the Cedar Ridge seniors are set to make it a memorable finish to the season. Cedar Ridge will travel to Chapel Hill on Tuesday, then host Orange next Friday in a benefit for vs. Cancer. There will be lots of great baseball memorabilia that be raffled off, as well as great items from restaurants and shops from throughout Hillsborough.
