Congratulations to the Science Olympiad teams! Both the high school and middle school teams are state bound. The high school placed 2nd in the Cincinnati Regional Tournament and the middle school placed 3rd in the Cincinnati Regional Tournament.
The Wyoming Boys’ Basketball team will play for a District Championship on Friday at 7:15 p.m. at the University of Dayton Arena vs. Thurgood Marshall High School. Tickets for the game are $6 pre-sale and available through 3:00 p.m. on Friday in the Wyoming Athletic Office. On Friday there are 3 games at UD (Wyoming is the 2nd game) so the evening could be sold out as there are 3 local Dayton teams playing. GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY as there is no guarantee tickets will be available that evening at the door.
We will have at least one student bus going to the game – leaving Wyoming High School at 5:45 p.m. on Friday. Tickets for the bus are $4 each and will be sold Tuesday – Friday at lunch or until we are sold out.
This is a huge night for our boys’ program! Please come out and support the Cowboys. On Wyoming!
