The Christmas Room
By Maria Osborne
Summit Academy’s Christmas Room is a sight to behold! When you enter you walk through trees until you come to a log cabin with a sign that reads, “Fled to Egypt, be back soon.”
Joseph, Mary and Jesus used this log cabin before the flight into Egypt. Inside the house is how one might imagine, with a little modern twist.
The Christmas Room is a tradition at Summit. It is designated to focus on the true meaning of Christmas, that of Christ and the Nativity.
Summit Academy’s Christmas Room was completed by ninth and tenth graders at the request of the eleventh and twelfth graders, who gave them a topic to work around.
Thank you for all your hard work freshmen and sophomores. The Christmas Room is the best ever.

Summit High Schoolers split
Playing at home this weekend with both boys and girls playing NICS, North Idaho Christian School from Hayden, Idaho, Summit's Patriots came away with one victory and one loss at the varsity level, and lost a squeaker in overtime in the boys jv contest starting the day.
The jv game was clost throughout, with Summit moving out to a 13 to 11 tie at halftime only to give up a couple of extra points in the second half allowing the Royals from NICS to tie the game at end of regulation, 37 to 37. The guests then hit a three and converted 4 of 6 free throws to edge the local boys 46 to 41.
In the girls varsity following, Summit's ladies moved out to a nine to eight lead at the first quarter break, then poured it on in the last three quarters to walk away with a 46 to 29 victory for their seventh win of the season, against the only loss they suffered in overtime against Kamiah in their opening game.
Rebounding was again a strong point for the Patriot ladies, with Prigge and Rehder pulling down a lion's share of the boards, while scoring was scattered over the entire team as follows: Lauren Wemhoff - 7, Cori Wemhoff - 5, Alyssa Frei - 5, Prigge leading all scorers with 21, and Rehder - 8.
In the boys' varsity following, the local Patriots battled hard throughout the night, behind only 23 to 18 at halftime, but allowed the game to get away a bit in the final stages, dropping another game, this time to the aggressive NICS boys by a score of 54 to 38. Scoring for the Patriots: David Spencer 10, Zach Frei - 2, Stephen Spencer - 4, Dustin Lustig - 2, Brandon Rehder
with his best output of the season - 15, and Jacob Uhlenkott - 5.
Both boys and girls varsities will be participating in Orofino's Christmas tourney, with the girls scheduled to play Orofino tonight at 6:00, and the boys to follow also against Orofino, at 7:30.
Summit junior high boys closed out their 2005 season last Thursday with their best performance of the year, losing only 44 to 41 against Orofino's eighth grades. The loss ended a split season for the boys who played the year with six players, 8th graders Dylan Prigge and Josh Frei, 7th graders Beau Schlader and David Johnson, 6th grader Austin Chmelik, and 5th grader Dan Wemhoff. The Patriots have also been invited to an invitational in January, and will be traveling to Boise in February for the annual Hallisey tourney held there!
