This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is junior basketball guard Amiyah Ware. Last month, Ware played her first games with Cedar Ridge after suffering a torn ACL on her right knee. In her second game, she scored 19 points as the Red Wolves defeated Person 50-27 in Roxboro. The win ended Cedar Ridge’s 39-game conference losing streak. It was Cedar Ridge’s first conference win since February 8, 2019. Ware scored 21 points in Tuesday’s game against Orange at Panther Gymnasium. On Thursday night, Ware had 22 points, a season-high, as Cedar Ridge earned its second win of the season, 38-30, over Franklin Academy. Amiyah grew up playing at the Orange County Parks and Recreation Department and started when she was eight years old. After two years at The Burlington School, she opted to transfer to Cedar Ridge during the summer. Before she returned to Hillsborough, she underwent grueling rehabilitation to get back into playing shape. Her addition to the Cedar Ridge lineup under head coach Megan Skouby has led to the Red Wolves being competitive against local rivals like East Chapel Hill and Orange. After its win over Franklin Academy, Cedar Ridge will continue its season tonight against Eastern Alamance in Mebane at 6 PM.
