Last week the WolfPack had an exciting week of competition! WolfPack football had a clean sweep of victories over the weekend, with the varsity team winning 42-7 over Mt. Pisgah, the JV team winning 42–6 over Walker, and the 5th/6th grade team winning 22–20 over Mt. Vernon. Plan to cheer on all three of these teams this week at home as we take on Pinecrest! Other victories included a varsity volleyball win over Atlanta Girls School and a Middle School softball win over Kings Ridge, 10-3. Check out the recaps below for more details on all of our competitions this week!

Our PackBackers Spirit Coordinators would like to share that the Spirit Spotlight is on our varsity volleyball team in the week ahead! Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 13, where we’ll cheer on the JV and varsity volleyball teams in matches against Pebblebrook and Pinecrest. These games occur at home beginning at 5 p.m. Fans in attendance will receive a fun, volleyball-themed give-away! Be sure to come out and back the Pack!

We’re also looking forward to having our varsity boys football team back at home this Friday for Lower School Night and special guests 104.7 the Fish! This, along with 19 other competitions, will round out the Pack's athletic schedule for the week; you can find our full calendar here. Plan to join us soon to cheer on the WolfPack!

Go Pack!
