This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is outside hitter Cameron Lanier. It’s the second consecutive year that Lanier has been honored. The Cedar Ridge volleyball team is off to its best start in school history after wins over Western Alamance and Williams last week. Lanier is second on the team with 66 kills. She has had double-digit kills in four of Cedar Ridge’s first eight games. She had a career-high 18 kills in a victory over defending 3A State Champion D.H. Conley on August 20. Against Northwood on September 2, she had ten kills, while she registered eleven kills in a victory at Eastern Alamance on September 9. Last season, Lanier was second on the team in kills with 68 as Cedar Ridge captured the Big 8 Conference championship. Lanier and the rest of the Red Wolves have a busy week ahead with a rematch against D.H. Conley on Monday night in Hillsborough. Then East Chapel Hill will return to Hillsborough for a nonconference game on Tuesday. On Thursday, Cedar Ridge travels to Person to start the second half of the Central Carolina Conference season. Cedar Ridge leads the CCC with a 6-0 record, one game ahead of Northwood for first place. (Quick note: this award commemorates the week starting September 5. It’s not being posted until now because we got behind. We’ll have another Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week to announce on Wednesday.)
