teams win 2 of 3 games
Playing locally last Tuesday, both girls and boys basketball teams from Summit walked away with victories, the lady Patriots with a 46 to 20 victory over Pullman High School’s C squad, and the boy Patriots with a similar 42 to 33 win over Grangeville. Scoring for the girls in the Pullman game was evenly spread, with Cori Wemhoff leading the way with 15, helped along with 6 each from Alexa Prigge and Emily Rehder, 5 thrown in by Lauren Wemhoff and Elaine Rehder, 4 each by Amber Nuxoll and Alyssa Frei, and one point by Jeannie Goeckner who has returned to the court recently after a long absence due to injury.
In the boys game which followed, Summit slowly moved ahead, leading 18 to 15 at halftime, and 31 to 23 at the quarter. The final 42-33 score fashioned by Summit including scoring only from four players, Dylan Greene with 18, Shane Wemhoff and Brandon Rehder with 9 each, and Jacob Uhlenkott with 6.
Thursday action was a turn around however, as the Patriots, slow to adjust defensively, were blitzed by the Culdesac wolves 26 to 16 in the first quarter. Adjusting, Summit came back, outscoring their opponents 9 to 7 in a tough defensive second, but then dropped back again in the second half to lose by a score of 65 to 42, the Wolves blasting away with six three’s and a high percentage of two’s, countered only by the scoring of Wemhoff with 23, Greene held to 13 by shots which continually rolled off the rim, Jake Uhlenkott with 4 and Mark Uhlenkott with two.
The week left the girls’ team with a record of seven wins, combining both varsity and JV games, while the boys’ record stands at 7 and 7.
Next action for the girls was Timberline JV and varsity here this past Tuesday, while both teams are scheduled to travel to Logos for a double-header on Saturday.
Summit stays second in Academic Bowl
Competing locally at Prairie High School this Monday, Summit Academy’s Knowledge or Academic Bowl team maintained its hold on second place in the league with 3rd and 8th place finishes for the two teams in attendance.
The team of Dylan Greene, Shane Wemhoff, Kelli Shears, Maria Osborne, Lauren Wemhoff and Emily Rehder finished 3rd for the evening with a score of 200, a ways back from Grangeville High School and Prairie who finished in a torrid one-two finish, 286 to 285. The 200 of the Patriot’s team coupled with the 160 fashioned by their other team, Mark Uhlenkott, Stephen Spencer, Jeannie Goeckner, Alyssa Frei, Amber Nuxoll, Cori Wemhoff and Jacob Uhlenkott gave Summit a school score for the evening of 360, good for second place behind Grangeville’s 465. School scores are determined by adding the scores of the top two teams for each school in attendance, or multiplying the one-team score by 1.5 if only one team is there.
League standings show Summit still in second place overall, after five meets, with four still to go. Nineteen teams competed in this meet, representing the eight teams in the league.
