Posted: 11/7/2017

The WolfPack varsity football team will take on the Walker Wolverines in the first round of GHSA state playoffs on Friday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m. at WolfPack Stadium. This is the first time the Pack has been to the playoffs since 2009, so let's WHITE OUT the stands by wearing our favorite white Whitefield shirts and sweatshirts and cheer on our team to victory!

To support our team, the Upper and Middle Schools will have a Blue and Gold Day on Friday. Football players in grades six through 12 are encouraged to wear their football jerseys. (Fifth-graders will have a separate dress code due to their etiquette luncheon.)

Please read below for game information and special parking instructions.

What: Varsity Football First Round of State Playoffs vs. Walker - WHITE OUT!

We will have two major events on Friday night occurring simultaneously: the Upper School musical and the varsity football state playoff game. To accommodate these two events, we will be separating Whitefield Academy into two separate parking lots.

Those who will be attending the play will need to enter the back gate off of Pebblebrook Road. You will need to have your play ticket ready to show the officer at the gate when you arrive.

The front entrance off of Buckner Road will be used for the football game, and you will purchase your admission upon arrival at the gate. Both overflow lots will be available at 6 p.m. with shuttle buses running to both lots. Please be aware that you will not be able to drive between the north and south lots on campus until 7 p.m. PackBacker members who have reserved parking spots will still be allowed to park in their designated spot, but will have to pay the $8/person admission fee.

PLEASE make plans to arrive early as there will be limited seating within the stadium, and we want to fill the stands with WolfPack fans!

Concessions will be offering hot cider, hot chocolate, and coffee since the forecast is calling for a chilly evening, and the Russells will be here making fresh kettle corn on site! We are also looking for volunteers to help in concessions for this game - if you are interested in signing up for a shift, please click here.

We look forward to seeing you on campus Friday evening!
