Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Kevin Skalisky
CLASS of 1974 Football, Baseball and Basketball ATHLETE
"Big play ability" was just one of the qualities Kevin contributed to WHS athletics. As a ball-hawking three-year starting defensive back and running back, the Panthers compiled a 30-2 record, won two state grid championships, and also finished second. He played an integral role in the vaunted "Baker's Dozen" defense that blanked ten opponents in 1973. Kevin set a school record with 17 career interceptions and tied the season mark with 10 pass pilfers while being named to "All-Big 9" first teams as a defensive back three consecutive years.

Equally adept on the diamond, he started for two seasons as a hard-hitting infielder and earned berths on "All-Big 9" baseball teams twice. Kevin paced the Panthers in batting average and RBIs as a junior and senior to lead the team to a 42-18 record.

He also played basketball for WHS and collected a total of eight letters.

Kevin began his collegiate career playing baseball at Washington State University, then transferred to the University of Puget Sound and switched to football as a starting defensive back.
