GIRLS SOCCER (1-0)

Thursday, Eastmont (0-1) away.

A reversal hoped for here.  By winning the last three games, Eastmont has taken a 16-14-1 lead in the series between the two cross-river rivals.  At one time Wenatchee led the series 11-4-1, but since 2004 the Wildcats have won 12 of 15.  On the EHS field the two teams are 6-6.

 

Saturday, Everett (0-1), home.

This is the second meeting with Everett.  Maybe the Panthers can do the same thing with Everett they did Saturday with Enumclaw.  Last fall both the Seagulls and Hornets beat WHS 5-0.  The Panthers started this season by defeating Enumclaw.  The Seagulls played their first game yesterday and lost to Garfield 3-0.  In games against Western Washington teams Wenatchee is 7-10-1.

 

Home Openers.  The Panthers have a 15-11-1 record in their 27 home opening games, but they have dropped their last two.  Their most frequent opponents have been Eisenhower 4, Moses Lake 4, Cashmere 3 and Davis 3.

 

VOLLEYBALL

Wednesday, Eastmont home.

The defending Big Nine champ Panthers open their season with a league match against Eastmont.  This has been a lopsided series since it started in 1980.  Wenatchee leads in wins 33 to 4, including the last six straight.  In their own gym WHS is 19-1.

 

Saturday, SunDome Volleyball Festival.

Wenatchee joins 31 other 2A, 3A and 4A schools for a full day of bump, set, spike action in Yakima.  The tourney begins with eight pools of four teams each.  The Panthers will play Grandview, Evergreen (Seattle or Vancouver…it doesn’t say) and North Kitsap in their pool.  WHS is 3-2 vs. Grandview, 1-0 Evergreen (Sea.) and has never played Evergreen (Van.) or North Kitsap.

 

FOOTBALL (0-1)

Friday, Davis, away.

Davis has been by far Wenatchee’s most frequent opponent.  Starting in 1923, the schools have now played 80 times. Through the first 29 years (1923 thru 1956) the South Central Washington school was known as Yakima.

 

Wenatchee leads the series 46-30-4 and has won the past 13 straight.  During those 13 games the Panthers have outscored the Pirates 452 to 138.  The 13 straight is the longest win streak for either team in the series.

 

The Panthers are 21-16-2 in Yakima and have been triumphant in 10 consecutive encounters…last loss was 1991.

 

Longest Wenatchee win streak - 13 (1970-80 and 2000-12).

Longest Wenatchee losing streak - 3 (1923-25, 1938-40, 1959-67 and 1987-89).

 

Most points scored by Wenatchee and biggest winning margin - 80 and 73 (80-7 in 2007).

Most points scored by Davis and biggest winning margin – 64 and 64 (64-0 in 1950).

 

Most points one game combined - 87 (Wenatchee 80, Davis 7 at Yakima in 2007).

 

Wenatchee has shutout Davis 14 times and Davis has shutout Wenatchee 13 times.  Both totals include three 0-0 ties (1926, '27 and '37).

 

Wenatchee has scored 1,713 points (21.4 per game) and Davis 1,066 (13.3).

 

Standings: Eisenhower 1-0, Davis 1-0; Sunnyside 0-0, Moses Lake 0-0, Wenatchee 0-1, Eastmont 0-1

 

Note.  The next road victory will be the 200th win away from home in the history of the pigskin sport at Wenatchee.

 

 

Brandt-Sims Preseason All-State

The Seattle Times has named Isaiah Brandt-Sims as one of two running backs to its preseason all-state team.  Their comment: “Runs a 4.37-second 40 and has a 35-inch vertical leap.  Versatile running back who committed to Stanford.”
