During the Christmas break the two basketball squads are the only Wenatchee teams in action.  And for the fifth year in succession the hoop teams stay home and each plays two games with nonleague opponents.  In the past four years the girls have faced Kentridge, Lake Stevens, Liberty (Issaquah), Skyline (Sammamish), Snohomish, South Kitsap (Port Orchard) twice and Tahoma (Kent).  The boys have played Auburn three times, Cheney, Jackson (Mill Creek), Lakeside (Seattle) and Puyallup twice.

 

GIRLS BASKETBALL (2-2, 2-5)

Friday, Lake Stevens (0-1, 2-3) home.

The Panthers and Vikings have a one-game history.  Two seasons ago a very good Lake Stevens team came to town and upended WHS 55-30.  Last season Lake Stevens finished 5th in the state tournament.  LSHS is a member of the Wesco North 4A League.

 

Saturday, Bellarmine Prep (2-0, 3-1) home.

This is the first meeting between Wenatchee and Bellarmine Prep.  The Lions play in the Narrows 4A League, and after dropping their first game have won three in a row.  This fall the Tacoma school won the state volleyball title.

 

Standings: Davis 4-0, Sunnyside 3-1, Wenatchee 2-2, Moses Lake 2-2, Eisenhower 1-3, Eastmont 0-4

 

BOYS BASKETBALL (3-1, 4-3)

Friday, West Seattle (0-3, 3-3) home.

West Seattle will be making their first ever appearance in the Apple Capital…in fact this is the first game anyplace between Wenatchee and the Wildcats.  West Seattle won their first game, lost three straight and have won their last two.  The Wildcats are a 2A school that has opted up to compete in the Metro 3A League.

 

Saturday, Lake Stevens (0-2, 1-5) home.

Like West Seattle, this is also the first meeting ever involving the Panthers and Lake Stevens.  This far the Vikings lone victory was against Delta Secondary of British Columbia.   

 

Standings: Wenatchee 3-1, Eastmont 3-1, Davis 2-2, Moses Lake 2-2, Sunnyside 1-3, Eisenhower 1-3

A Pigskin Power

An update on any extraordinary football program.  Many of you remember the De La Salle football team that had its national record 151-game win string snapped by Bellevue in 2004.  I saw on the news that they were playing for the California state championship last Saturday, the 21st.  I followed up and found they lost, and that broke a 40-game streak.  But “lost” is a very rare word when applied to the school from Concord, a city in the East Bay area 31 miles east of San Francisco.  The record of the private Catholic boy’s school is incredible.  In 32 seasons from 1982 to 2013 the Spartans have amassed 393 wins against just 19 losses and three ties.  That’s an average of 12.3 wins and 0.6 losses per season.
