WolfPack Weekly Roundup
Last week the Pack competed in 15 athletic events, and brought home wins over Mt. Bethel, Mount Vernon, Mount Paran, North Cobb Christian, and Fellowship Christian! You can find highlights from these swim, wrestling, basketball, and tennis events in the recaps below.

This week we’re looking forward to our first full set of JV and varsity basketball games of the season, taking place this Friday night against Mount Pisgah! Cheer on the Pack with us at the Whitefield athletic center at 4:30 p.m. (boys JV), 6 p.m. (girls varsity), and 7:30 p.m. (boys varsity). Please join us in the stands as we work to create an environment that is spirited, passionate, encouraging, respectful, and God-honoring through every interaction with one another and our visiting opponents and referees.

Also this week, the Pack will compete in an additional 11 basketball games, three swim meets, four wrestling matches, and the Middle School tennis Metro 10 championship meet, which will take place at home on Wednesday. We’re looking forward to cheering on our student-athletes at each of these events, and we would love to have you join us! Click here for our full athletic calendar.

Go Pack!
