This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is sophomore wrestler Pierce Prescod. This season, Prescod is 38-9 with 29 pins. On Saturday, he secured his first individual championship at Riverside High School at 120-pounds. Prescod pined Thomas Crowley of Riverside in 2:51 of the championship match. In November, Prescod finished third in the Red Wolf Invitational. As a sixth grader, Prescod was ready to quit wrestling after just his third day of practice. His coach managed to talk his way back into returning and Prescod has turned out better for it. Currently, he’s second on the Cedar Ridge team this season in victories. Prescod has competed in some of the biggest tournaments in the state over the past six weeks, including the Holy Angels Invitational in Asheboro earlier this month. He also competed in the WRAL Invitational in Knightdale on December 16 and 17, where he competed at 126-pounds. Prescod will join his fellow Red Wolves in the Central Carolina Conference Tournament this Saturday at Orange High School.
