Patriots Get Lots of Volleyball Action
By Lauren Wemhoff
Last week the Patriot Volleyball team played a few tough games.  Starting on Monday, September 27th, the Summit JV squad traveled to Orofino and was defeated by the Maniacs in 3 games:  (Summit score-opponent score) 17-25, 19-25, 13-15.
 On Tuesday, the Varsity team traveled up to Pullman to play the Pullman Christian Eagles.  The match ended up going to five games.  Summitís two games winning streak was bluntly put to an end in the final game, as the girls did not get off to a good start.  The final scores for those games ending up being 19-25, 28-26, 25-10, 20-25, and 4-15.  
 The girls once again hit the road on Wednesday to play the Highland Huskies.  Although the games were close, the Varsity was unable to come up with complete  victory.  Summit saw some great kills from Alexa Prigge as well as Amber Nuxoll.  What  hurt the team most were the missed serves.  Scores were 18-25, 22-25, 22-25.  The JV squad played a full three games against the Huskies.  In the first game Summit was dominate and ended up winning by quite a lot.  However, in the second and third games, the Huskies railed and ended up winning both tight games:  25-11, 20-25, 6-15.
 For their last game of the week, Summit played the Kamiah Kubs on Thursday.  The Patriots dominated throughout the night.  Summit fans were able to see some great sets from Lauren Wemhoff and Danielle Stubbers which set up some unstoppable spikes throughout the night from Cori Wemhoff and others.  Summit also had great net play from Emily Rehder, Prigge and Nuxoll which polished their win against the Kubs.  The final scores were:  25-29, 25-18, 22-25, and 25-16.  The JV squad played earlier in the night and also dominated.  Brianne Stubbers had some great serving streaks and Summit ended up winning two, 25-12, 25-15.  Summitís next action is Thursday the 6th at Lapwai with a tournament in Moscow coming up the 14th, 15th, and 16th.  Good luck Patriots!!

Summit team in second
Traveling to Nezperce Monday for Central Idahoís kickoff knowledge bowl contest, Summit Academyís twin teams finished with scores of 247 and 217 to finish high in the ranks of the 22 teams competing, and earning second place for the evening behind Grangeville with their combined 464 school score.
Competing for Summit was the four-person team of seniors Stephen Spencer, Kelli Shears, and Lauren Wemhoff, along with frosh Joseph Lustig, and the five-person team of juniors Alyssa Frei, Jacob Uhlenkott, and Cori Wemhoff, joined by sophomores Zach Frei and William Schlader.
The evening continued the rivalry between Summit and Grangeville which ended last year with Summit one point ahead for the year, 71 to 70, to earn their first ever league championship.  Points are awarded at each contest with 10 given to the winner, nine to second place, eight to third, and so on down to the last school competing in the league.  The Nezperce evening concluded with Grangeville in first with 10 points, and Summit second with nine, and other schools scattered out below.
Next action in the league takes junior high teams to Highland October 17 and high schoolers for match two to C.V. November 14.

Summit girls drop two
Following their initial start of two consecutive wins, over Highlandís eighth grade 36 to 15, and Orofinoís eighth 33 to 16, Summitís junior high girlsí basketball team dropped a couple of tough games to Prairie eighth and Grangeville eighth, by scores of 24 to 10 at Prairie, and 31 to 16 at Grangeville.
In the Prairie game, Summitís defense kept the game relatively close with scores of 4 to 8 at the quarter, 6 to 12 at the half, 10 to 16 at the end of the third, but an 0 for 9 shooting spree in the fourth while Prairie was hitting on four of their shots fashioned the final 24 to 10 loss for the Patriots.  Against Prairieís very aggressive defense, the Summit girls were only able to connect on five of their 41 shots taken.
Traveling to Grangeville last week produced a similar result, as only seven shots fell of the 35 taken, resulting in the final loss to the Bulldogs.  This game too was close in the opening half, with scores of four to four at the quarter and seven to 12 at the half getting out of hand a bit in the second half as Summitís young team suffered from fatigue in the later going.
Leading rebounders for Summitís team after the four games are Mary Shears and Tara Stubbers, eighth graders, and Jamie Chmelik, seventh grade, while the scoring load has been shared by eighth graders Tara Stubbers with 12 and Mary Shears with 21, seventh graders Jamie Chmelik with 18 and Rachel Wemhoff with 24, and sixth graders Brandee Seubert with six and Savanah Prigge with 14.  Jenn Wemhoff (8th) and Savannah Kuther (6th) round out Summitís team.
