Summit welcomes veterans
By Brandon Rehder
On November 14th the Summit Academy juniors and seniors welcomed two speakers to commemorate Veterans Day, which was November 11th. The speakers were Jim Schumacher, who served in Vietnam, and Seth Harman, who was recently in Iraq. Both speakers outlined their positions in the military and where they served. They also compared the war in Iraq to the Vietnam War. Mr. Harman brought pictures to help illustrate what the situation in Iraq was like. The presentation was excellent and a big thanks goes out to Mr. Schumacher and Mr. Harman for taking time to speak at our school.    

Summit Girls win 2 of 3
Starting off the high school girls' basketball season with a bang last week, Summit Patriot ladies took the championship trophy home from the New Meadows Kick Off tourney with victories over Salmon River and Wilder. Earlier in the week, Summit lost a squeaker to Kamiah's Kubs by one point in an overtime, which saw Summit miss nine of 12 free throws during that period.
In the Kamiah game, scoring was spread evenly over the squad as follows: Cori Wemhoff - 9, Lauren Wemhoff - 8, Alexa Prigge - 7, Alyssa Frei - 6, Emily Rehder - 5, Amber Nuxoll- 4, and Jacquie Lustig - 2. Emily and Alexa did a good job on the boards during the evening, with Summit ahead at the quarter 10 to 9, behind at halftime 21 to 26, still behind at the 3rd quarter break 30 to 34, then rallied a bit in the 4th to end regulation at 38 to 38. The missed free throws in the overtime doomed the local ladies to defeat.
The same evening, Kim Frei closed out the junior varsity match with five straight free throws to lead the JV team to a narrow 23 to 22 victory.
Friday and Saturday, the local girls traveled to New Meadows to defend the title they earned there last year, and repeated that feat with an easy 41 to 25 victory over Salmon River, then eked out a 42 to 36 win over Wilder to bring home the tourney trophy for the second year in a row. Scoring for the Patriots in the two game series: (Totals for both games) Lauren Wemhoff -12, Cori Wemhoff - 22, Jeannie Goeckner - 6, including 2 clutch free throws in the last 20 seconds of the championship game to seal the victory, Alyssa Frei - 4, Alexa Prigge - 21, Amber Nuxoll - 1, Emily Rehder - 12, Jacquie Lustig - 5. Alexa and Emily dominated the boards in both contests, averaging 10 boards each in both games.
Next game for the Patriots is a return match with the Kamiah Kubs at Prairie Middle School, Tuesday, November 23.
