By Ryan Wright – The Wayne Memorial High School varsity football team faced the Plymouth Wildcats in the first game of the 2019 season on August 29. With new coach Jari Brown, who was hired over the summer, the Zebra’s lost 43-0.
The Wayne Zebras did show they could have a promising future under Coach Brown. They showed a lot of toughness and willpower up until the last second of the game. Coach Brown has told reporters that the football program needs a solid foundation on which to rebuild the team from the ground up.
Wayne Memorial offers more than football for family sports entertainment. Not every sporting event has a cost to get in, but if it does, it’s $5 a person from ages K-62.
A student at WMHS can get a sticker on the back of their I.D. when they pay once at a sporting event and get in free the rest of the year. Here are some notable upcoming events at Wayne Memorial.
