It was a perfect night for football as the Manawa Wolves played the first home game on their new field.

In March, Faulks Bros. Construction, Waupaca Sand & Solutions’ parent company, broke ground for the school’s new natural grass football field and track. Over the summer, it was amazing to see the site transform as our crews performed earthwork and installed the new growing media. By the time September rolled around, the field was ready for the team’s home opener.

The long list of donors who made the project possible were honored at a halftime ceremony. A loss to the powerhouse Amherst High School team was the only negative of the evening for the proud Manawa community.  However, we’re certain the Wolves will celebrate many wins on their great-looking new field.
