team is Sportsmanship winner
Summit Academy’s first time ever entry into the boy’s division of the annual Hallissey Tourney in Boise ended in a one win, two loss record, but a proud possessor of the sportsmanship trophy presented to the boys division there.
The Patriots first game resulted in a 27 to 18 victory over Holy Spirit of Pocatello, with Dustin Lustig and David Spencer carrying to major scoring load, with nine and seven points respectively, while Dylan Prigge and Chase Nuxoll added four, and one each from Josh Frei, Joseph Lustig, and Zach Frei.
The Patriot second game against tourney finalist Sacred Heart was a tough 47 to 42 loss, with the Patriot changes dimmed badly in the second half as David Spencer, with 11 points at half time, was forced to sit out the entire second half due to a repeat of an earlier back injury. The remaining Patriots fought hard however, to lose by only 47 to 42 with Prigge, Zach Frei, Nuxoll, Lustig and Josh Frei adding 13, 7, 6, 4, and 1 points to Spencer’s 11 point first half effort.
The final Patriot game, in the consolation bracket, saw the short-handed Patriots run out of gas, as they were eliminated from the tourney by St. Mark’s 8th grade 41 to 22.
Lustig and Zach Frei tossed in nine and seven points for Summit, with Spencer returning to the game in the second half with a 6-point effort.
The tourney closed out the season for the Patriot boys with a record of 7 and 7, and leave the team with great promise for next year, losing only 8th graders Zach Frei and Spencer and returning current 7th graders Dustin and Joe Lustig, Chase Nuxoll and Michael Hattrup, and sixth graders Josh Frei and Dylan Prigge.
The boy Patriots would like to thank their coaches Virg Frei and Domie Lustig and all the fans that supported them this season and made their year a very successful one.
Summit girls compete at Hallissey Tournament
Traveling to Boise and representing Summit Academy for the second year in a row at the annual Hallissey tournament for teams with a Catholic religion program, Summit’s girls found the going rough, but were none-the-less very competitive in the three games they played there over the weekend.
The Patriot team of 8th graders Lauren Chmelik, Lynn Rehder, Danielle Stubbers, Christa Wilson; 7th graders Kim Frei and Brianne Stubbers, and sixth graders Mary Shears and Jennifer Wemhoff lost only 19 to 15 to a tough Sacred Heart 8th in the first game, by a one point squeaker 16 to 15 in the second, then were eliminated from the consolation bracket with a final 19 to 11 loss to Holy Spirit of Pocatello. Scoring for the Patriots who repeatedly saw close shots rim out throughout the tourney were Danielle Stubbers and Wilson with a total of 12, Frei with 7, Chmelik and Brianne Stubbers with 4 and Shears with 2.
Throughout all three games the Patriots played excellent defense, and rebounded well, but just could not put together a game where a good percentage of shots fell.
The Summit ladies want to thank coaches Heather Divine and Julie Schumacher and all of the parents and fans who cheered them on throughout the tourney, and want to congratulate both the Summit boys for winning the sportsmanship trophy and the Prairie Release Time Angels for their second place finish in the tourney following two very exciting double overtime victories in the two preceding finalist games.
The tourney closed Summit’s season with a 5 and 11 record, with all but three losses coming on very close scores.

Summit high school girls finish season
Closing out their 2003/2004 season on a winning note last week, Summit Academy Patriot ladies are looking forward to next year’s competition with a mix of varsity and JV and “C” teams on the agenda.
Playing locally, the girls ended their season with a 36 to 26 victory over Pullman Christian Academy, a team that they had lost to earlier in the year by a score of 35 to 43.
Scoring was spread evenly throughout the team as follows: Elaine Rehder-4, Lauren Wemhoff-3, Amber Nuxoll-2, Cori Wemhoff-7, Jacquie Lustig-4, Alexa Prigge-6, Emily Rehder-6, and Jeannie Goeckner-4. Other team members Alyssa Frei, Kelli Shears, Mary Wimer, and Maria Osborne failed to score but contributed well with timely rebounds and tough defense.
The game ended the season with a combined 11 wins and 16 losses scattered over a schedule which saw the 12 girls play 20 Varsity and seven JV games. Because of the very equal talent among the 12 girls participating, the team was divided differently each time the girls had a JV and Varsity evening.
Members of the 2003/2004 squad were Elaine Rehder-Junior, Sophomores Jeannie Goeckner, Maria Osborne, Kelli Shears, and Lauren Wemhoff, and Freshman Alyssa Frei, Jacquie Lustig, Amber Nuxoll, Alexa Prigge, Emily Rehder, Mary Wimer and Cori Wemhoff.
The girls would like to thank Coach Kim Frei and all of the fans who showed up through the year to cheer them on during this second Summit high school season.
Prairie wins final Knowledge Bowl meet
Competing with a reduced squad of five due to several members at a district basketball game, Prairie High none the less pulled off a first place finish, scoring 195 points in a tough evening hosted by Timberline High School last night. Grangeville took second and third during the evening to cement its position in first place, while Summit Academy managed to hang onto a second place tie with Nezperce despite having one of its poorest nights of the season.
Summit’s team, reduced from its usual 18 member team to nine, managed only to sixth place finish, but still managed a total of 37 points overall to maintain its second place spot, with Nezperce moving up from fourth with a second place school score for the evening.
Next action for local teams is at Highland in mid March.
