WolfPack Weekly Roundup: January 22, 2019
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 1/22/2019

Last week the WolfPack enjoyed a great week of competition at Whitefield and around Atlanta! You can check out some of the highlights of these games in the recaps below.

Last week the PackBackers Spirit Coordinators shared with us that the Spirit Spotlight was on our varsity basketball teams this week, and they did not disappoint! The varsity boys and JV boys came away with two strong victories each during the week and we could not be more proud of the varsity girls team that has worked so hard and never given up this season and came away with an incredible victory in front of the home crowd Saturday night. As a part of this spotlight, fans had the opportunity to earn a free WolfPack Basketball t-shirt at Friday night’s games and the Lower School came out in full force Saturday to support the WolfPack basketball programs during our Lower School night. Our Lower School cheerleaders put on a great show at halftime to keep the crowd entertained all night long. The future of the cheer program is going to be in great hands!

This week the Spirit Spotlight is on our varsity swim team. They’ve been hard at work so far this season and are now working hard to prepare for their state meet, coming up February 7-9. Be on the lookout for a video celebrating this team later on this week!

We’re looking forward to four more days of competition this week, including basketball games, wrestling matches, and swim meets. Click here to see our schedule for the week and be sure to come out and back the Pack at one of these 17 upcoming opportunities!

Looking forward to backing the Pack alongside you soon,

Athletic Director
