This week’s Cedar Ridge Red Wolf of the Week is junior women’s tennis player Ella Caltabiano. This season, Caltabiano has been the #2 singles player for head coach Steve Mayhew. She has collected a total of eleven victories for a Cedar Ridge team that currently is in 2nd place in the Central Carolina Conference. On September 11, Caltabiano won a three-set match over Western Alamance’s Reagan Williams en route to a Red Wolf victory. Caltabiano has been a member of Cedar Ridge’s varsity team since her freshman year, where she was also honored as Red Wolves of the Week after helping Cedar Ridge beat Northwood. Caltabiano has also teamed with Catherine Ballenger at #2 doubles, which has given the Red Wolves the upper-hand in many conference matches. Last week Caltabiano and Ballenger won at #2 doubles in Cedar Ridge’s 6-3 win over Orange, which swept the regular season series from the Lady Panthers. Caltabiano has helped the Red Wolves get in position to reach the 3A State Dual Team Playoffs for the first time since 2016. Caltabiano and the rest of the Red Wolves return to action later today (Monday) against Eastern Alamance at Red Wolves tennis courts. It’s the first of three matches this week for Cedar Ridge.
