WolfPack Weekly Roundup: September 24, 2018
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 9/24/2018

Last week was Homecoming for Whitefield!

We loved seeing WolfPack spirit come alive through dress-up days, a Thursday pep rally, and a full crowd and spirited BlueCrew at Friday night’s game! This game was made even more exciting as we welcomed alumni back, crowned Carson Llewellyn as this year’s Miss Whitefield, enjoyed an outstanding performance by the WolfPack marching band, and cheered for our varsity football team as they claimed an awesome, 34-6 victory against St. Francis! Thanks to all those who had a hand in making this night great. Whitefield athletics would not be the same without the support of our PackBackers, parent volunteers, coaches, cheerleaders, SWAT team members, and fans.

Our homecoming week was filled with a handful of victories, including wins by all four of our football teams, a varsity softball victory over Walker that had us on the edge of our seats, and a Middle School softball win over Kings Ridge. You can read more about these great moments and others in the recaps below.

In the week ahead, we’ll be finishing out September with seven volleyball matches, four football games, five softball games, and two cross-country meets! You can click here to check out all of the opportunities you’ll have to cheer on the WolfPack both home and away. Be sure to come out and back the Pack soon!

Go WolfPack!
