Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Mike Sugg
CLASS of 1960 Football, Basketball, and Track ATHLETE
During Panther powerhouse years in the late 1950s, Mike was the "go to" receiver. In the game against North Central as a senior, he hauled-in eight of the ten passes thrown by WHS - about the same ratio of total receptions he posted for the season. The "speedy" 5'11", 160-lb. pass grabber had the ability to turn short tosses into long gainers and during two years as a starter, set school records for all-time and season receptions and yards. Mike was also a standout defensively. A "second team All-NCW A League" selection as a junior, because the Panthers primarily played an independent cross-state schedule his senior season, no WHS players were eligible for league honors. He was a co-captain for the 1959 grid team.

On the basketball court, Mike was a starting forward as a senior and 'sixth man' as a junior for the 1959 state tournament team. During those two seasons, the Panthers compiled a 33-12 record. He was a team co-captain as a senior.

Mainly a hurdler, Mike was a top point earner for the Panther track squad for three years and finished second to the eventual state champion at districts in the low hurdles as a senior. Mike earned a total of seven letters and also served as student body treasurer.

He went on to play for the University of Washington freshman basketball team.
