Posted: 3/25/2019

The WolfPack competed in 24 athletic events last week! Highlights included two wins by our varsity baseball team against Mt. Bethel in a Monday night doubleheader, varsity boys and girls soccer wins over King’s Ridge and St. Francis, and varsity boys and girls tennis wins over St. Francis. You can find recaps from these events and more in the recaps below.

Last week our Spirit Spotlight was on the varsity lacrosse team! In celebration of the hard work this team has put in so far, the front of our Upper School building was decorated to cheer on the Pack and invite fans out to their Thursday night game. On that night, the WolfPack earned a 6-2 victory over Carrollton, followed by another weekend win against Mount Pisgah on Saturday, 13–9. Great job on these victories and a strong season thus far, varsity lacrosse! We’re cheering for you!

In the week ahead we’re excited to place the spirit spotlight on our varsity boys soccer team. Of their 12 games thus far, the team has earned six shut-out victories, not providing their opponents with the opportunity to score at all and holding an overall record of 8–4! Be sure to come out to this team’s next home game this Tuesday at 5 p.m.! Go Pack!

Our week is filled with 29 competitions at home and across Atlanta. We’re looking forward to cheering on our golf, track, lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and tennis teams. You can click here for our full athletic calendar, and click here to find team-specific schedules. Be sure to join us soon!
