WolfPack Weekly Roundup: February 4, 2019
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 2/4/2019

Last week we had the opportunity to cheer on the WolfPack in many awesome competitions. The boys blue basketball team competed in the Metro 10 championship, continuing in the bracket after a Thursday night win over Mount Paran. They continued to compete on Saturday morning against Mount Vernon for the championship title, and ultimately took home the trophy with a 56-38 win!

Other highlights from the week included our winter week celebration! Middle and Upper School students participated in dress-up days to show their school spirit, and we enjoyed cheering on the WolfPack at home basketball games on Wednesday and Friday.

We also had the opportunity to celebrate our winter senior athletes on Friday night at Senior Night. Congratulations to the 15 athletes that we honored on Friday! Your hard work and diligence as a member of the Pack have contributed to stronger programs and team dynamics in your respective sports, and we are excited to cheer you on as you continue into the great things God has planned for your futures.

This week our winter sports begin to wind down with their season-end activities while spring sports teams start to ramp up for their seasons. You can click here for our full athletic calendar, and join us soon to cheer on the Pack!

Go WolfPack!
