girls beat Kamiah
Reversing a one point overtime loss to Kamiah which was the start of Summit Academyís high school girls just a week ago, the local girls from the Academy turned a 17 to 11 scoring advantage in the third quarter last Tuesday evening into their third victory of the season, final score reading 53 to 46 Summit Academy.
The Patriots was their 13 to 7 first quarter lead dwindle away as they went to the locker room at half time behind 21 to 22. The scoring burst in the 3rd however, was more than sufficient to ward off the visiting Kubs, led by Frances Walker and Kandice Oatman with 10 and 11 points respectively, with a change in defensive strategy playing a major role in the decision.
On the boards, the Patriot ladies dominated with Alexa Prigge, Amber Nuxoll, and Emily Rehder pulling down 14, 12, and 12 boards in that order. Patriot scoring was led by Cori Wemhoff who had the hot hand with three treys and a final total of 22, while Lauren Wemhoo-8, Prigge-12, Rehder-9, and Jeannie Gehring with 2 closed out the scoring. Unable to score, but doing an excellent job on defense were Alyssa Frei and Jacquie Lustig. The win gives the local girls a 3-1 record for the new season, with their next game to be played at Prairie High School, tonight, Wednesday. JVís play at 6:00 and the varsity game will follow at 7:30.
Summit JVís added their second win of the season in the Kamiah preliminary, winning this time by a score of 28-22, after eking out a narrow 22-21 victory last week against the same team in their opener.
Summit boys start their season with a bang this week also, as they travel to Culdesac this Thursday night to take on the Culdesac jv and varsity there, then travel to New Meadows Friday and Saturday to take part in that schoolís kick-off tourney. The Patriot boys are hoping to duplicate the effort of their girlsí team, who walked away with the tourney trophy for the second year in a row, with victories over Salmon River and Wilder High Schools.

Then on the 9th New Meadows travels here for a girls and boys contest, this one at Prairie Middle School. The Timberline game begins at 6:00 featuring jv teams, with the varsity contest to follow at 7:30.
Summit boys start practice
"Making a New Nation"
The parents and grandparents gathered in their room at 11:00 to see the half-hour performance. The skits included one on the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and one about Pilgrims. The
main characters were, Lucas Wemhoff, who played Paul Revere, and Luke Schwartz as Thomas Jefferson, who signed the Declaration of Independance.
Their performance ended with the whole class singing "America the Beautiful". Then each of the students read "Thank You" letters to Jesus that they had written. After the performance there was a thanksgiving feast of cookies and juice.
