WSC football schedule for 2024 announced


Wayne State College will play six home games and host a spring scrimmage against Chadron State as the 2024 Wildcat football schedule was released.

Wayne State will host Chadron State in a joint practice at Cunningham Field in Wayne on Saturday, April 20 at 1 p.m.  The event will consist of one-on-one drills, skill competitions and situational team scenarios.

"We're excited to compete against Chadron State to wrap up spring practice," Wildcat coach Logan Masters said.” It gives our team, especially our young players, a chance to prepare for an opponent like in the fall."
