Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Cass Gebbers
CLASS of 1983 Football, Basketball and Baseball ATHLETE
Cass was exceptional on gridiron, court and diamond alike and was described in The Wenatchee World as, "Among the all-time great athletes in the school's history," by WHS basketball coach Jerry Riggan. A three-sport letterman for three years, he started for all those years in football, basketball and baseball for the Panthers. Cass earned a berth on the "All-State" football team at defensive back and was a two-year "All-Big 9" selection. Not only was he a defensive star with 15 career interceptions including nine as a senior - both ranking third best in WHS history - he was also an outstanding quarterback.

On the basketball court, the unselfish sharpshooter completed his career as the school's all-time assists leader (220) as well as the Panthers' second most prolific scorer with 1,047 points. He paced the team in scoring for two seasons and was named to the "All-Big 9" squad twice.

Outstanding both at the plate and as a shortstop for WHS's baseball team, Cass was "All-Big 9" on the diamond as well. He served as team captain in all three sports and was named "Panther Best" as a senior.

Cass was an all-conference basketball player and MVP at Spokane Community College and also played baseball for the Spartans. He completed his collegiate career as a basketball player at Gonzaga University.
