Varsity volleyball is off to a great start in the postseason play. The Lady Wolves have played well in all of their games thus far. They have been solid on the court this year, landing them a spot in the GHSA Class 2A.

With a big win against Gordon Lee, the Lady Wolves have earned a chance at revenge for last year’s playoff loss against Lovett. Lovett, a historically strong team, knocked Wesleyan out of the playoffs last year, and is back for more yet again. Keep Reading

The Wesleyan Wolves had an outstanding victory on Friday, September 18th to continue a four game winning streak. Wesleyan played KIPP Atlanta and triumphed with a score of 38-6. Senior, Jordan Argilagos, was a key part of the Wolves offense, having a total of 121 rushing yards and two touchdowns. When asked about the game, Argilagos said, “It was a great game. All around, the team was clicking on all cylinders. It feels like we are moving along very well, and the season is taking off in the right direction.”

Senior, Jordan Mack, helped the Wolves get an early lead with a four yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Later in that quarter, Argilagos rushed four times for a total of 55 yards resulting in a touchdown. Shortly after, Argilagos ran 49 yards on the Wolves’ next offensive drive for a third touchdown of the quarter. Senior, Jordan Weaver, made all three extra points giving the Wolves a 21-0 lead going into the second quarter.

Sophomore, George Bielan, sprinted 31 yards on the Wolves first offensive possession of the second quarter for a touchdown. Weaver converted the extra point and then later scored a 23-yard field goal, making the score 31-0 going into the half.

For the first touchdown of the second half, sophomore quarterback, Banks Ramsey, connected with junior, Harrison Cook, for a 27-yard touchdown pass. Weaver converted the extra point to give the Wolves a 38-0 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Late in the fourth quarter, KIPP scored on a four-yard touchdown pass, but failed to convert the extra point. The game ended with a 38-6 Wolves win.

Thanks to the Spirit Captains−Sydney Weissman, Kylie Reed, JT Eigel, Will Harper and Christopher Walton−the Wolf Pack supported the Wolves more than ever. The theme was “blackout,” and the Wolf Pack went all out, screaming on defense, being silent on offense, and cheering with might to encourage good plays; the student section has never been better.
