Now in their 106th year, the Panthers are 200-170-12 in road games (53.9 percent).
The first road win came in the third season of the pigskin sport at Wenatchee High. Both 1905 and ’06 were two-game seasons with all four games at home. The Waterville win evened Wenatchee’s road record at 1-1. The week prior they had traveled to Snohomish and lost 17-0.
The Panthers longest win streak in “away” games is 13 from 1969 to 1972. And this may surprise folks. From the second game of 1984 through 1990, Wenatchee lost 30 consecutive road games.
