Wyoming Wolves win debut football game

Wyoming Wolves win debut football game

WYOMING, MI (WZZM) - For the first time in decades, high school football fans in Wyoming are united.

This year Park and Rogers high schools are merged into one building that's now simply called Wyoming High School.

"We are one," says parent Lisa Gerner. "We are the Wyoming Wolves. We are one."

The new Wyoming Wolves played their first football game Thursday night at what was Rogers High School on Prairie Parkway SW.

Fans were excited to see the team perform.

"Now we don't have two small teams -- we have one big strong team," enthused parent Sherri Wosova.

But the merger has been a difficult adjustment for some in the community. The Rogers Golden Hawks and the Park Vikings were always bitter rivals.

"It's always Park doesn't like Rogers, Rogers doesn't like Park," explained Rogers graduate Brad Savin. "We never liked each other ever."

The Golden Hawks and the Vikings are now together in the same building under a new name.

Playground Review - Prairie Park

Playground Review - Prairie Park

WYOMING - Nestled along a busy road in a sea of apartment complexes is Prairie Park, a nice piece of green space with a walking trail, a skate park, and a nice playground contraption with slides and climbing pieces.

The park is located on Prairie Parkway between Byron Center Ave. and Burlingame.

The park includes a gazebo with one picnic table, water fountains and bathrooms.

Unfortunately the park offers no shade, even at 10am.  Other than that, another fun place to run your toddler around for a while.
