WolfPack Weekly Roundup: November 12, 2018

Posted: 11/12/2018

Last week we had the opportunity to cheer on our Middle School tennis, wrestling, and basketball teams along with our varsity swim team and varsity football team.

After a great regular season of play, varsity football competed in the first round of state playoffs on Friday night, taking on Trinity Christian School. We were proud to cheer on the Pack at this game as they fought hard all the way to the end but ultimately fell to Trinity Christian. This concludes an awesome season by our varsity WolfPack; congratulations to the players, coaches, parents, and volunteers on a season filled with hard work and great success as we continue to build toward the future!

Other highlights from the week included a big win by our Middle School boys tennis team over Kings Ridge whom they lost to in the Metro 10 finals last year. We also had our first competitions of the season for Middle School basketball and a great meet for our varsity swim team! You can check out the recaps below for more information on these events and more.

In the week ahead, we’re excited to cheer on our varsity wrestling, swim, and basketball teams along with Middle School tennis, basketball, and swim teams! You can find our full athletic calendar here, and click here to check out team-specific calendars!

Looking forward to backing the winter WolfPack alongside you in the stands at the pool and around the courts soon!
