WolfPack Weekly Roundup: December 10, 2018
Categories: General, Lower School
Posted: 12/10/2018

The WolfPack had a great week of competition last week, highlighted by our first varsity home basketball games on Friday night, where we cheered on the WolfPack against Mount Pisgah! It was great to have our cheerleaders, pep band, and BlueCrew back in full force, cheering on the Pack. We also celebrated the unveiling of a new mascot costume for our beloved Wolfie!

The Pack ultimately collected eight victories last week, including wins by varsity and Middle School wrestling, Middle School tennis, and varsity boys, JV, MS girls, and MS boys blue basketball teams. You can find the highlights from these matches in the recaps below!

This week, our PackBackers would like to share that the Spirit Spotlight is on our varsity wrestling team! This team has been hard at work and has many exciting meets in the weeks to come. You can check out their upcoming schedule here, and be on the lookout for the front of our Upper School building to be decorated in celebration of this team and all their hard work later on this week!

In the week ahead, we’ll be cheering on the Pack in 10 athletic events! You can click here to find our full athletic calendar, and be sure to stop by the athletic center soon to pick up a copy of the Winter 2018-2019 Pawprint, our athletic program which features all of our sponsors and teams for the winter season.

Looking forward to cheering on the Pack alongside you soon,
