Panama High School must have had some great rivalries with the schools listed above. Donnellson and Sorento are
both within 3 miles of Panama and probably provided for some GREAT rivalries each year. It is known that Panama offered
basketball and baseball. It is believed that track & field was also offered. If you have any further information
on the Panama High School athletic program please drop us a line.
The Panama High School boys basketball team had some excellent years of competing in their area. The boys
won a total of three District Titles
. The only mention of the Panama on the IHSA web site (www.ihsa.org
) is in boys basketball. Unfortunately only the years when the titles were won are listed. We are searching for
the records and coach's names of these and other great Panama High School teams.
1937-38 District Champions
1941-42 District Champions
1943-44 District Champions
***Through research conducted by Mark Jurenga we learned that Panama High School squared
off with the mighty Collinsville Kahoks one time.
*Collinsville is #2 in IHSA history in wins with 1,939 after the
19 Panama 15
