Posted: 4/8/2019

I hope many of you had the opportunity to come out and witness the incredible talents of our track team this past Saturday on a beautiful day for a track meet! The WolfPack track and field team did not disappoint at home with a great showing in front of the home crowd. Please check in for all the official times and scores soon. Lacrosse also had a great win against Greenbriar, who traveled all the way from Augusta to take on the Pack last Friday night. You can find recaps from these events and more  below!

This week we will be spotlighting two other spring programs. Come out tomorrow and cheer on the competition at the tennis complex as the varsity tennis team takes on a tough Holy Innocents group. All matches start at 4 p.m. so come out and support the Pack on the courts! If you have not had the chance to see the varsity tennis team live, here is a quick sneak peek into some of the action on the courts lately! Thank you to Brent Rivers for putting all our hype videos together for us this year.

Our other spotlight will occur this Wednesday as the varsity baseball team takes on King’s Ridge at 5 p.m. Catch the game and grab a free hot dog (while supplies last)!

In the week ahead we’re excited to compete in 26 total athletic events. You can find the WolfPack working hard both at home and away as we take on competitors including King’s Ridge, North Cobb Christian, and Walker! We will be honoring all of our spring sport seniors this Friday night before the boys lacrosse game at 5 p.m. Come out and show your support for our our seniors as they play their final games and matches for the Pack over the next month!
