Summit celebrates Holyween
By Brandon Rehder
On October 31st the students of Summit Academy celebrated Holyween. All of the students from Preschool thru 6th grade dressed up like saints and prayed a live litany of saints in the gym. Meanwhile, the Junior High and High School students were in the classrooms decorating and putting together skits for the younger kids. The skits included a puppet show about St. Nicholas, a game show about St. Dennis, and a campfire skit about St. Kateri Tekawitha. Other skits included the life stories of St. Lucy, St. Andrew, and Blessed Miguel Pro. After the little saints viewed all of the skits everyone congregated in the gym for cake. 

Summit Girls Basketball begins
By Brandon Rehder
 “Here we go again!” says Coach Pete Prigge of the Summit Academy girls’ High School basketball team. Prigge is very optimistic about the season and he has reason to be. The Summit girls finished 14-2 last year with both losses coming on last second shots. This year’s ball team will consist of seniors Lauren Wemhoff, Jeannie Goeckner, and Kelli Shears along with Juniors Alexa Prigge, Cori Wemhoff, Emily Rehder, Jacquie Lustig, Amber Nuxoll, and Alyssa Frei, all of which saw time on Varsity last year. Also on the team this year are Sophomores Lynn Rehder and Lauren Chmelik and Frosh Brianne Stubbers and Kim Frei. Their exceptional size inside is complimented by solid outside shooting and the ability to run in the open court. The season tips off on November 15th as Summit travels to Kamiah to take on their JV and Varsity.

Summit Jr. High splits games
Kicking off the new junior high boys’ basketball schedule, Summit’s Patriots traveled to Kamiah last Tuesday where they endured a terrible first half, connecting on only one of 19 shots to fall behind at halftime by a score of 21 to 2.  But the second half proved to be a far different story, as the ball which refused to spit the net first half zeroed in with much more accuracy in the second, the Patriots actually outscoring the Kubs 19 to 8 during the frame.  A changed defensive strategy also played big in the second half, as the tightened Summit “D” kept Kamiah out of the paint most of the time, forcing the hosts to go to less accurate long range bombs.  Scoring for the Patriots was evenly divided with Dylan Prigge and Josh Frei netting seven, Beau Schlader 5, and David Johnson 2.  Darian Ball led Kamiah scorers with 10 and Garrett Langston tossing in 8.
Traveling to Grangeville Thursday, the small six-man Summit team played a shortened two quarter game with Grangeville’s seventh, winning 14 to 2, then took on the Bulldog 8th in a regular match.  A tight game throughout was turned to Summit’s favor in the 2nd period, where the local boys outscored the Bulldogs 13 to 6 to build a 20 to 10 lead.  Hanging on against a reinvigorated Bulldog attack the second half, the Patriot’s eked out a 33 to 29 win to even their season record to one and one.  Prigge had the hot hand for Summit, netting 21 points in the six quarters, with Johnson adding 7, Josh Frei 14, Beau Schlader 3, and Austin Chmelik 2.  Next game for Summit is at CV, 4:00 P.M. Nov. 15, and Timberline the same time on Thursday, November 17.

Summit scholars move up
No mistake about it this time, a misread score last meet incorrectly indicating a second place finish by the Patriots, Monday nights effort at CV did produce a clear cut, but narrow second place finish, to move the Patriots up from their fourth place finish last meet into the third spot in league, following Grangeville with 20 points, Nezperce with 17, with Summit at 16.  The remaining teams in the league, involving eight area high schools, fill the final five league spots.  League standings are determined by giving 10 points to the meet winner, nine to second, eight to third, on down to the last school participating.
Summit’s short handed team of Stephen Spencer, Kelli Shears, Alyssa Frei, and Joseph Lustig finished fourth for the evening with a score of 270, while senior Brandon Rehder aided by juniors Jacob Uhlenkott and Cori Wemhoff, and sophs Zach Frei and William Schlader finished close behind them in fifth with 236 points.  Both teams were missing members because of basketball practices, but their combined score of 506 was just enough to edge past Nezperce’s 503 and host CV’s 488 school totals.  Competition allows 6-member teams with school scores determined by the two highest team’s scores from each school, some of the bigger schools bringing as many as four teams.
A misread number at the first meet in Nezperce had the Patriots temporarily thinking they had finished second there also, but official figures when checked showed they had lost out by 13 points to Highland at that meet, and by one point 463 to 462 to Nezperce, to finish fourth for the evening instead of second as anticipated.
Next meets are in Grangeville, Dec. 5 for high school competitors and at Prairie December 12 for the junior high participants.
