WolfPack Weekly Roundup: August 28, 2017
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 8/28/2017

The WolfPack athletic department was back to our normal speed last week, as teams competed in five athletic events at home and traveled to an additional six events away. Highlights of our week included victories by our 5th/6th grade football team and gold volleyball team against Mt. Paran and Kings Ridge as well as our first official varsity football game of the year, for which the Pack traveled to Mount Vernon. To end the week, our varsity cross-country team competed at a meet in Whitesburg, Georgia, while the varsity volleyball team traveled to Pace for a playdate. You can find recaps from these events and more below!

Looking into the week ahead, we’re excited to cheer for the WolfPack as they compete against Atlanta Girls School, North Cobb Christian, Kings Ridge, North Atlanta High School, Mount Pisgah, and more. For the full athletic calendar, click here.

We’re also looking forward to our first home football game of the season, which will be on Friday, September 8, against King’s Ridge. You’ll have the opportunity to cheer on the Pack in your blue and gold and even cool down with snow cones from the Kona Ice truck. Mark your calendars now!

Hope to see you in the stands soon!
