W-B Area’s Unified Sports Teams Will Be The Wolfpack
PLAINS TWP. -- Starting in the 2019-20 school year, the Wilkes-Barre Area’s unified sports teams will be known as the Wolfpack and their team colors will be black and Carolina blue, according to a motion approved tonight by the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board.
The district plans to merge the three high schools into a new consolidated high school in Plains Twp. after the new school is built, perhaps in the 2021-2022 school year.
But the school board in June decided to merge to sports teams at the high schools starting in 2019-20 due to declining student participation.
