Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week: Sarah Tucker

Updated: July 11, 2022

This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is track & field runner Sarah Tucker. Last month, Sarah graduated from Cedar Ridge after running track for four years. In 2020, during her sophomore outdoor season, she qualified for the 3A State Championships in the 800 meters in a trio-meet against Chapel Hill and Orange with a time of 2:29.4. Unfortunately, later that day, the COVID outbreak took place and by the end of that week, the high school sports season was shut down. On January 28, 2000, Tucker finished first in the 1,000 meters during the indoor track season at the Eastern Alamance Polar Bear #3 with a time of 3:24.60, beating 13 other competitors from seven other schools. Tucker continued to compete in track and field during her final two years at Cedar Ridge in indoor and outdoor track & field. The following spring, Tucker won the 400 meter dash in a tri-meet against Southern Durham and Orange at Red Wolves Stadium. After the indoor season was largely canceled during her junior season, Tucker returned to the indoor team last December. She finished 2nd at the Eastern Alamance Polar Bear #2 meet in the 1000 meters with a time of 3:40.93. Next month, Tucker will pack her bags and leave for Boone, where she will attend Appalachian State University. She plans to be at Kidd Brewer Stadium on Labor Day weekend for the Mountaineers much-anticipated matchup against North Carolina.
