Welcome back Fr. Camillus
By Stephen Spencer
On Thursday, October 13th, the students of Summit Academy celebrated Mass with Fr. Camillus, his first since returning from Tanzania.  Fr. Camillus returned from Spokane on Wednesday following a lengthy flight from his native country.  For the past three months, Fr. Camillus has been visiting his family and friends in his hometown on the slopes of Mt. Kilamanjaro.  His activities there included administering to the poor and sick.  While there, he had the honor of attending the ordination of two priests.  
 Summit Academy students welcomed Fr. Camillus back by having the student body attend Mass.  After attending Mass, the students presented him with a banner signed by the students and staff.  Summit is glad to have Fr. Camillus back because now they will be able to attend Mass every Tuesday and Thursday as a school.

Summit Jr. High girls lose at Kamiah
Connecting on only three of 35 field goal attempts and two of twelve attempts at the line spelled doom for Summit Academyís junior high girlsí basketball team Thursday night at Kamiah.
Scoring two points only in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th quarters, and three only in the third, the Patriot ladies gradually fell farther and farther behind a very aggressive and pressing Kub team, to see their 2-8 deficit at the end of the first quarter grow to a 9 to 32 final by the end of the game.  Fatigue played a role in the game also, as two of Summitís players were missing, leaving the game in the hands of seven players only.
The loss evens the Summit record to three and three, with two more games on tap this week, both at Nezperce, and both following the 4:00 P.M. seventh grade prelim there.

Summit Scholars at Highland
A shorthanded four-member team of Summit students traveled to Highland for its monthly Academic Bowl meet, and came away with a large loss on the final venture question to finish far back in the pack in Mondayís competition, hosted by the Huskies of Highland.
Eighth graders Josh Frei, Tara Stubbers, and Jenn Wemhoff with 7th grader Rachel Wemhoff carried the ball for the Patriots, missing several key members because of illness and football.  And a 42-point venture loss on the last question of the day doomed the Summit students to one of their lowest finishes recently.
The meet was attended by some 18 teams for eight area schools, and was won by Grangeville, with Nezperce placing second, and Orofino and Prairie sharing 3rd place honors.
Next action for local teams is at Orofino for the junior high contestants, Nov. 7 and the following Monday at C.V., November 14 for the high schoolers.
A note is added here also, that the second place finish of Summitís high school team last week was in error, as a misread number dropped them not from the second place as announced, but to fourth, behind the winner Grangeville of course, and behind Nezperce by 13 points who finished 2nd, and behind Highland, who finished just one point ahead of the Patriots to close the evening in 3rd.  Final scores for the evening for the top four teams were 664, 475, 463and 462 for the Patriots.
