WolfPack Weekly Roundup: October 11, 2017
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 10/11/2017

The WolfPack ended a great week of competition last week with Lower School Night at the varsity football game. Whitefield rallied for a spectacular comeback win against Fellowship Christian and celebrated our youngest fans. Lower School students were recognized before the game, helped to make the tunnel for the football team to run through, and cheered alongside our varsity cheer quad. It’s always great to see the Whitefield community of all ages filling our stands. Thank you, Lower School families, for coming out to support our football team!

Other highlights from last week included victories by our Middle School football, JV football, and Middle School softball teams against Walker and an exciting varsity cross country meet in Douglasville, Georgia on Saturday. You can find details from these events and more below!

The WolfPack has a short week ahead following Fall Break, but you still have a handful of opportunities to back the Pack! Click here for the full athletic calendar. Also plan to join us for more Friday night lights this month, as we’re looking forward to three more home football games this season. Click here for our varsity football schedule.

Go WolfPack!
