Tuesday, Eastmont home.

Ronald Reagan was half way through his second term as president of the United States the last time Wenatchee lost to Eastmont in girl’s tennis.  The year was 1987, over a quarter-century ago.  In the 26 seasons since ‘87 the Panthers have won 31 consecutive matches.  The last three though have been as close as they can get all scores of 4-3.  My tennis records begin in 1977 in in that Wenatchee is won 49 of 51 matches with their cross-river neighbor.


Friday and Saturday, Tri-City Invite.

This will be the fourth spring in a row the combined girls and boys teams participate as one in this event.  The Panthers have done quite well the past three years.  In a 16-team field they have a second, another second and a year ago they won the title. 


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



Tuesday, Eastmont home.

The Panthers will be going for their 21st win in a row over the Wildcats.  And in that string the scores haven‘t been real close.  With seven points total in each match (except one only went five), Wenatchee has outscored Eastmont 127 to 11.  Overall WHS leads the series 48 to 3.


Friday and Saturday, Tri-City Invite.

See Girls Tennis above.


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



Tuesday, Sunnyside (6-0) away.

The Panthers head for Sunnyside today for the first league game of the spring.  The Grizzlies must have come out of hibernation well rested s they have run off six straight wins and outscored their opposition 20-2.  A year ago Wenatchee and Sunnyside split two games and the series now is even a two wins apiece.  The Grizzlies are ranked number five in the ScoreCzar computer rankings for 3A teams.


Friday, Moses Lake (2-2-1) home. 

The turn of the century brought a new coach to Wenatchee a positive change in the series with Moses Lake.  When Dennis Tronson became the coach in 2000 the Panthers trailed the Chiefs in nine to seven in wins.  Since then the Panthers have won 18 of 24 and now hold a 25-15 advantage.  The past three springs they have played two times each year and each year they have split the pair.


In the ScoreCzar computer rankings Wenatchee is 20th this week.  Note – Davis at 5-0-1 is number one.



Thursday, Cascade (Leavenworth) away.

The Panthers end the nonleague portion of their schedule with a trip to Leavenworth.  This will be their second encounter with the Kodiaks this season.  Last month WHS won 15-5 here in town.  This will be the eighth time the two schools have played over the past six years and Wenatchee has four wins and Cascade three.


In nonleague competition the past three weeks the six CBBN teams are a combined 11-13 (Wenatchee and Davis each have one nonleague remaining).  The records: Eastmont 2-1, Wenatchee 2-2, Davis 2-2, Eisenhower 2-2, Moses Lake 2-2 and Sunnyside 1-4.



Tuesday, Eisenhower (1-2) home and Friday and doubleheader away.

The week begins league play.  The last seven games with Eisenhower have all been Wenatchee victories.  And with those wins the Panthers have taken the lead in the series.  In the first 24 years of the series (1967-90) the Cadets built up a 14 game lead at 36-22.  Something happened in 1991 and in the past 23 years WHS has dominated with 32 wins in 47 games and now leads 55-51.  In Rec Park Wenatchee is 30-24 and in Yakima 25-27.


The loss to Stadium last week took the Panthers out of the Washington Baseball Poll top 10.  Now Moses Lake at 4-1 is number nine.


In nonleague games the Big Nine, as in softball, hasn’t really ripped it up this spring.  The six schools are a combined 12-15 (Eastmont has one game remaining).  The records: Moses Lake 4-1, Wenatchee 3-2, Eastmont 2-2, Davis 2-3, Eisenhower 1-2 and Sunnyside 0-5.



Tuesday, Pasco Invite.


Monday, league match at Moses Lake.


Since last season when the league went to six member schools, Wenatchee has played in eight league matches and has been the winner in every one.  Yesterday they did it again at the Yakima Country Club.  The Panthers had a score of 394, followed by Eastmont 413, Moses Lake 416, Davis 470 and Eisenhower incomplete.


Standings: Wenatchee 10, Moses Lake 7, Eastmont 7, Davis 4, Eisenhower 1
