BOYS TENNIS
Lucas Tilly, Nathaniel Noyd and Sohail Qazi begin play Friday at the state tennis tournament in Richland. Tilly opens against Derek Welch of Kentlake. Noyd and Qazi face Adam Lindquist and Dane Anderson of Curtis (University Place). The matches are at Richland High School and the Columbia Basin Racquet Club.

Wenatchee has had quite a successful history at state. They have earned points at the event in 15 of the last 16 years and 31 times in 48 years since they first placed in 1965. Four times they have won the whole thing – 1966, 2004, 2005 (tie) and 2010. Last spring they tied for seventh.

Placing high is usually a numbers game…the more entries the better a school’s chances. This spring there are nine schools with multiple entries. Jackson (Mill Creek), Jefferson (Auburn) and Olympia each have three, while Wenatchee is among half a dozen with two.

GIRLS GOLF
Carly Bozett placed 40th in the state championship tournament that ended this afternoon at the Club Green Meadows in Vancouver. The Panther sophomore shot a 91 in the opening round yesterday and that score just happened to be the cut for those advancing to the second and final round today. Her 96 today gave her a 187 for the tournament. Bozett improved over her freshmen year last spring when she qualified for state, but missed the cut.

The Panthers had four others golfers in the tourney and none of them qualified for second-day play -Kadi Freund, Emily Bofto, Ali Brandt and Gabe Jones.

BOYS GOLF
Two Wenatchee players participated in the state championship golf tournament and neither made the cut to play on second and final day. Yesterday Wyatt Fraley and Brady Kuntz played at Camas Meadows Golf Club in Camas. After the first day the field of 80 was cut in half with the top 40 advancing to the final round today. It took a score of 80 or better to continue on. Fraley shot an 84 and Kuntz an 88.

BASEBALL (19-4)
Stingy. Pitching and defense. Wenatchee gave up a mere 2.52 runs per game through 23 games. This is the second fewest in 47 years since the current league was formed in 1967. The record for fewest runs allowed is 2.13 in 1976.

The Panthers average score was 5.52 to 2.52. The 3.00 margin of victory is the second largest in team history since 1967. The record is 3.10 set in 1973 (6.00 to 2.90).

ScoreCzar computer poll. Despite the loss in the first round of the state tournament, Wenatchee remained ninth this week. WHS had four nonleague games. Wenatchee split with Kennewick and won the rest. The poll has Kennewick number one and Mercer Island 34 in the 3A’s, with Selah 17 and Sumner 18 in the 2A’s.

SOFTBALL (10-12)
ScoreCzar computer poll. After completion of the season at the district tournament, Wenatchee climbed one spot this week to 44th.

Double or nothing on the diamond
Interesting numbers regarding the doubleheaders in softball and baseball this spring…softball had 14 and baseball 15. Ninety-three percent of the time the same team won both games. There was an Eastmont/Moses Lake split in baseball and a Wenatchee/Eisenhower in softball. That was it.

How about the 3-game series between schools in baseball and softball? There were 15 in each sport and 11 times in each sport one team swept all three.
