Waynedale was created in 1955 during the era when the state of Ohio was consolidating small school districts into larger ones in order to save money. Apple Creek, Fredericksburg, Holmesville, and Mt. Eaton high schools were merged to create Waynedale High School within the Southeast Local School District. They have been members of the Wayne County Athletic League since their creation, as their preceding schools were beforehand. A 20-member committee of coaches, students, and teachers chose the name "Waynedale", as well as the nickname "Bears" over the other choices of "Warriors" and "Wabbits". When the school colors of brown and gold were selected, they decided to go with the nickname of "Golden Bears." The Waynedale student section during athletic events is called the "Bear Den".[1]
