Patriot Junior High boys win two
Competing in Lapwai’s annual “For the Love of the Game” tourneys the past two weekends, Summit’s junior high girls, with reduced players due absence and injury, dropped all four of their tourney games to teams representing 8th grades from surrounding schools and AAU teams. Players Kim Frei, Mary Shears, Jennifer and Rachel Wemhoff, Jamie Chmelik, Vicki Schlader and Tara Stubbers played well during the tourney, but found themselves outmatched by older and more experienced teams. Eighth grader Brianne Stubbers played only a bit in the first game, but had no withdraw from competition because of a hand injury.
The following weekend, the Patriot junior high boys traveled to the same tourney, but played only two games, winning both by handy margins, posting a 44 to 21 win over a Genessee team, and a 35 to 21 victory over a Lewiston AAU team called the”Irish.”
Dylan Prigge scored 25 points in the two contests, with Dustin Lustig adding 16, Chase Nuxoll 15, Josh Frei 3, David Johnson 7, and Beau Schlader 11, Joseph Lustig played well during the games, pulling down several rebound, but was not able to break into the scoring column.
