This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is senior Olivia Aitkin. Olivia won this award in her sophomore year for swimming when she qualified for the 3A Mideast Regionals. This time, she earns it for golf. Aitkin qualified for the 3A Central Regional Golf Championship after the conclusion of the regular season at Mill Creek Golf Club in Mebane. But Aitkin’s best sport is softball, where she is the starting centerfielder for the Red Wolves. Recently, Aitkin announced her commitment to play at Amherst College in Massachusetts. Last season, Aiken was the starting centerfielder for the Red Wolves. She hit .404 with 19 hits. She was third on the team with 20 RBIs as the Red Wolves finished 9-5 in a tough Big 8 Conference. At Amherst, Olivia will study Law Jurisprudence and Social Thought. But first, she will complete her final season of softball at Cedar Ridge alongside fellow seniors Takia Nichols, Ava Lowry and Lexi Bonin. The CCC will have new powerhouse teams Eastern Alamance and Western Alamance, which will make the competition as deep as any league in the state.
