Summit girls win Kickoff Tourney
Traveling to New Meadows on consecutive days last weekend, the Summit Academy girls’ high school basketball team made the most of their trip as they took an easy 57 to 17 victory over young Midvale on the first night, then battled hard through all four quarters against host New Meadows to eke out a narrow 35 to 33 victory, built on two fourth quarter three’s and five of six free throw shooting at the end of the game to close out the victory.
The Midvale game was no contest from the beginning, as the Patriots took a 24 to 8 lead at halftime, built around the 10 rebound effort of Alexa Prigge and Emily Rehder, Emily adding nine blocked shots to her eight points to build the victory. Elaine Rehder with 10, Cori Wemhoff with 14, Lauren Wemhoff with six, Alyssa Frei and Jeannie Goeckner with two each and Lynn Rehder with one closed out the scoring, while fresh Lauren Chmelik added her defensive skills to the effort.
In the championship game, the Academy girls sputtered badly in the first half, falling behind 15 to 7 at halftime, and being down 11 point’s midway through the third quarter. New Meadows tall Jegain Rawlings continually interrupted the Patriot inside attack, while scored the majority of her team’s points with an 18 point effort to lead all scorers. Cori Wemhoff led the Patriot scoring attack with two crucial three’s in the fourth quarter, while Lauren Wemhoff, and Emily Rehder each added two consecutive free throws at the end to turn a three-point deficit into a one point lead in the last minute, with Cori adding one of two to end the scoring at 35 to 33. Lauren Wemhoff added eight points to the Patriot cause, all coming in the second half, while Elaine Rehder’s eight, Cori’s eleven, Emily Rehder’s six, and Alexa Prigge’s two finished out the scoring.
Next action for the Summit round ballers is a girls’ and boys’ varsity again with New Meadows there next Tuesday, with home games to follow.
