volleyball team loses twice
Traveling to Nezperce Friday, the Summit volleyball team started slow, and never really got going as they dropped their second match to visitors Pullman Christian. Never able to get in sync, the Patriots dropped games one and two to the visiting Eagles, then did managed to eke out a narrow win in the third game, only to fall again in the fourth to lose the evening three games to one.
Next action for Summit will be in Lapwai, as the Patriots recently were invited to the JV level tourney scheduled there this week.
Summit Jr. High girls win first game
Traveling to Highland as one half of this year’s Nezperce-Summit agreement, Summit’s junior high girls’ basketball team started off the season with a bang, racking up a 36 to 15 win over Highland eighth last Thursday, with three girls netting eight points, Tara Stubbers, Mary Shears, and Rachel Wemhoff. Jamie Chmelik added six, Savanah Prigge four, and Brandee Seubert two in the season’s first win for the Patriots.
Earlier, three Summit girls joined forces with Nezperce’s very small team, small in numbers, as only five girls were available to play for the Indians this year. By an agreement reached earlier, Summit will play the eighth grade teams from other schools and Nezperce will play the opponent’s seventh grade, with three girls from Summit helping out. As a consequence, all Summit games listed, as home games will be played in Nezperce.
Next action for the Summit ladies in this Tuesday in Nezperce against Orofino.
