Wenatchee boys basketball battling history

Wenatchee History

Wenatchee’s basketball history is a steep climb

WENATCHEE, WA – This year’s Wenatchee Panther boys basketball team is battling a dubious history when it comes to the state tournament. The last time Wenatchee made State was four years ago, losing both games and dropping out…

Historically speaking, the Wenatchee boys basketball team has played 43 games at the state tournament, dating back to 1925. Their overall record is 13 and 30 with four trophies, two 7th place finishes and two 6th place finishes.

In its 43 state games, Wenatchee has been outscored on an average of 37-to-31. Of course, this includes seven games in the 1920’s and 30’s when the Panthers scored 15-points or less, including a 12-10 loss to Wilbur in 1930.

In modern times, the Panthers have been to State a total of three times since 1986, the latest in 2014. The last time Wenatchee played a regional game was in 2016, falling by two to Gonzaga Prep 34-32.

Travis Williams was in his second year as head coach of the Panthers three years ago. Now in his 5th season, we will sit down with Williams to talk about this year’s team, history, and what he’s learned coming up tomorrow as the Panthers prepare to face Mt. Rainier Saturday for a chance to return to state here on the NCWLIFE Channel.
