girls sweep tourney
Invited to participate in Grangeville Elementaryís basketball tourney, eight girls from Summit Academyís 4th, 5th, and 6th grades made the best of their opportunity, as they swept five consecutive games to end the tourney as the only undefeated team there.
Summitís team of 6th graders Jamie Chmelik, Rachel Wemhoff, and Vicki Schlader, 5th graders Savanah Prigge, Nicole Frei, and Savannah Kuther, and 4th graders Brooke Schumacher and Cassidy Stubbers swept through their opponents from Grangeville, Kamiah, and CV by scores of 22 to 7 over CV in game one, 22 to 16 over Grangevilleís 5th in game two, 28 to 18 over Kamiahís fifth, 18 to 16 over a rematch with CV in their closet game in the tourney, and 20 to 12, in the final against Kamiah.
A highlight of the tourney was the fact that every girl on Summitís team, including fourth graders Brooke Schumacher and Cassidy Stubbers scored during the tourney, with 6th graders Chmelik and Wemhoff carrying most of the scoring load with Savanah Prigge proving a great help on the boards. Formers Summit girlís coach Julie Johner, in town for a short period of time, served as Summitís coach for the tourney, and the girls want to thank her for her help and encouragement.
Summit junior high scholars compete
A bit shorthanded with only four members each on their usual six-member teams, Summitís junior high knowledge bowlers traveled to Highland last Monday, and managed to finish with 95 points for the 8th graders, and 65 for the seventh, scores which put them roughly in the middle or slightly above in the 24 team competition from eight area junior high schools.
Teams from Grangeville finished first and second, while Nezperce took third, with all other teams spread out scorewise from there down to teams with only 10 and 15 points. Incorrect wagers on venture questions ending each round reduced the scores of many in the meet significantly.
Representing Summitís seventh graders, competing for the first time ever, were Josh Frei, Mary Wimer, Tara Stubbers, and Jennifer Wemhoff, while the eighth graders there, back for their second year of competition, were Kim Frei, Dustin Lustig, Joseph Lustig, and Brianna Stubbers.
Next competition for both junior and senior teams in the area is in December.
