WolfPack Weekly Roundup: September 5, 2017
Categories: General, Athletics
Posted: 9/5/2017

Last week, the WolfPack claimed victories against The Kings Academy, Kings Ridge, and Atlanta Girls School. Highlights from the week included our second football game as well as a full game schedule on Thursday, during which all four of our volleyball teams competed in addition to JV and Middle School football. We had a plethora of opportunities to cheer for the Pack and many great moments to get excited about.

In addition to these athletic events, we also had some great team- and program-building moments. On Wednesday, our varsity volleyball team took some time to get to know JV and Middle School players, helping them set goals for the season, answering their questions, and letting them know that they have supporters in the players that are older. It’s great to see the WolfPack come together not only to compete in athletics, but also to mentor and encourage one another.

This week, we’re looking forward to 20 athletic events, one of which is our home opener for the varsity football team. We can’t wait to back the Pack on Friday night! During halftime of this game, we’ll honor our state champion soccer team, and throughout the game, we’ll enjoy snow cones from the Kona Ice truck, so be sure to join us on Friday at 7 p.m. at WolfPack Stadium!

Go Pack,
Danny Ryan
