WolfPack Weekly Roundup: September 13, 2017
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 9/13/2017

Last week was our first home football game of the season, during which the WolfPack collected a 40-28 victory over King’s Ridge! It was great to have WolfPack fans and cheerleaders back at the stadium for some Friday night lights. Congratulations to our varsity football team and coaching staff on this exciting win!

During halftime, we had the opportunity to honor our varsity boys soccer team for their state championship win at the end of the spring athletic season.

Friday's game also marked the release of our fall 2017 athletic program, now titled "The Pawprint." If you didn’t get your hands on one of these at Friday’s game, stop by the Athletic Center soon to pick one up! This publication features each of our fall athletic teams along with this year’s WolfPack sponsors.

In addition to our varsity football win, the Pack brought home eight victories over five schools last week. For more recaps, see below!

While we had to cancel/postpone numerous athletic events Monday and Tuesday due to the tropical storm, there are still many opportunities to cheer on the Pack the rest of this week. Click here for the full athletic calendar, and click here to find team-specific calendars.

Go WolfPack!
