WolfPack Weekly Roundup: January, 28 2019
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 1/28/2019

Last week Whitefield athletes competed in 19 athletic events, including multiple wrestling tournaments, basketball games, and swim meets. The Pack brought home victories over Mount Paran, Mt. Bethel, and Cumberland Christian! You can find details on these events and more in the recaps below.

We also had the opportunity to celebrate our varsity swim team last week, as they held the Spirit Spotlight for the week. For those who haven’t been able to make it out to the pool this season, check out the team in action with this video. Your next chance to catch the team in action will be tomorrow afternoon at Pace Academy. We are looking forward to cheering them on as they compete toward the end of their season.

This week the Metro 10 playoff games begin for our Middle School basketball teams while JV and varsity basketball teams compete in their final two home games against Mount Paran and Pinecrest. Behind the scenes, our spring sports of tennis, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, and track have begun intense training to prepare for their seasons ahead, and on Friday both the varsity girls and boys soccer teams will compete in their first scrimmage of the season against Pebblebrook at home. You can click here for the full athletic schedule for the week and be sure to join us soon to support the Pack!

Go WolfPack!
