Summit girls win tourney
Traveling to Moscow last weekend, Summit's lady Patriots put together three good games, and came away with the championship trophy to close out their year with a record of 18 and 2, and their third of three tourney championships.. Earlier this year, the Patriots had earned similar championship honors at New Meadows Kickoff tourney, and over Christmas at the Christmas tourney sponsored by Culdesac high school.
The three game string included Summit victories over North Idaho Christian of Hayden, Idaho 30 to 16 in what proved to be a very slow and methodical game as the Royals from NICs slowed the game down to a crawl at times trying to stay up with the Patriots. The strategy worked well earlier, as Summit was held to 0 points in the second quarter, and found themselves in a 10 to 10 tie at halftime. Increasing the intensity of defense in the second half however, Summit outscored their opponents 20 to 6 to close out the opening victory.
Game two was a complete change of pace, as Summit raced out to a 32 to 16 halftime lead over a team from the Ontario, Oregon area, and went on in the second half to record a semifinal victory 63 to 37. All suited players from Summit saw action in both this game as well as the other two, and most scored at some point during the game.
The championship proved to be a mismatch, as Summit easily outgunned an unexpected opponent, HLCA, a private Christian school long established in Oldtown, Idaho. The Panthers from Oldtown had earlier pulled off perhaps the tourney's biggest upset, by squeaking by favored Logos 20 to 19, in a
slowed down semifinal the previous day. But the earlier magic which earned HLCA a championship chance failed to materialize, and the Patriots from Summit rolled to an easy championship victory, 43 to 18.
Cumulative statistics for the three games are as follows: Points scored: Kelli Shears - 3, Lauren Wemhoff - 29, Cori Wemhoff - 28, Brianne Stubbers - 2, Kim Frei - 8, Alyssa Frei - 2, Alexa Prigge - 35, Amber Nuxoll- 12, Emily Rehder - 15, and Jacquie Lustig - 2. Rebounds: Shears - 7, Lauren Wemhoff - 18, Cori Wemhoff - 8, Stubbers - 3, Kim Frei - 4, Alyssa Frei - 3, Prigge - 45, Nuxoll- 16, Rehder - 12, and Lustig - 11. Assists were handed out by Shears - 1, Lauren - 5, Cori - 8, Stubbers - 2, Kim - 1, Alyssa - 1, Rehder - 6, and Lustig -9. Cori led the steals department with 12, assisted by Lauren -5, Shears -1, Stubbers -1, Kim 2, Alyssa - 3, Prigge -3, Rehder - 4 and Lustig -2.
The previous week, the Summit varsity had earned their 15th season victory with a 41 to 32 win over the Nezperce Indians on a final home game Saturday with pre-game ceremonies honoring Summit's three seniors, Jeannie Goeckner, Kelli Shears, and Lauren Wemhoff. Scoring in that game were Lauren Wemhoff with 13, Cori with 6, Prigge with 14, Rehder with 6, and Lustig with 2. The Summit jv girls also took on Lapwai's jv's that day, losing in a hard fought battle 50 to 39, then did a bit better the following Monday, but still another loss to the same Lapwai jv, 34 to 24. With only three seniors gone, the girls team at Summit is looking forward to an excellent next season, with two tourneys already scheduled!

Summit boys still winless
Playing by far their best ball of the season was not enough this past weekend, as Summit's young varsity ball team dropped another two hard fought ball games at Logos High School's annual year-end tournament.
Matched up with one of the two pre-tourney favorites, Pullman Christian high school, Summit led 14 to 12 at the quarter mark, fell behind 26 to 35 at half time, then battled back to a 46 - 46 tie at the end of the third, then saw a four point fourth quarter lead melt down under a barrage of Pullman free throws to end up on the short end of a 54 to 61 score. Brandon Rehder in his best game of the season led the Summit assault with 26 points, and was helped out in that department by Jake Uhlenkott's 5, David Spencer's 8, Zach Frei's 5, Chris Hattrup's 6, Dustin Lustig's 2, and William Schlader's 2. Uhlenkott, Rehder, and Stephen Spencer led the Summit effort on the boards with 8, 7, and 3 respectively. 26 turnovers by the Patriots, several coming in the fourth quarter, again spelled defeat for the locals, despite a tremendous effort in every other department.
In the loser out second game, Summit got off to a horrible start, behind
6 to 1 at the quarter break in a very defensive game against St. Ambrose High School of Boise, and falling behind 14 to 1 in the second before their shots started to fall. The Patriots actually saw 18 shots miss, rim out, or bounce off during that horrible 10 minutes, but then rallying in an amazing way, actually pulled into an 18 to 18 tie in the third before going cold again and dropping the contest 27 to 38. Rehder again led all Summit scorers with 14, with only David Spencer with 8, Dustin Lustig with 3, and Chase Nuxoll with 2 being able to help in that department.
Earlier in the previous week, the Patriots had dropped a 38 to 28 decision to a reduced varsity Nezperce team, after leading 19 to 16 at halftime, the old bug of turnovers again playing a part in the second half collapse. Scoring in that game: David Spencer -9, Frei -2, Stephen Spencer - 7, Chris Hattrup - 8, and Rehder - 2.
In an earlier contest with a third Nezperce team, the Summit jv's had rolled to an easy 40 to 11 victory, with Chase Nuxoll supplying most of the scoring and rebounding power, netting 10 points along the way, and helped along
by Joseph Lustig with 8, William Schlader with 5, Michael Hattrup with 6, with another 11 points added to the final score by David Spencer, Zach Frei, and Dustin Lustig each playing one quarter.
Pre-game recognition of the contribution of seniors Hattrup, Rehder, and Stephen Spencer was part of the final home game for the Patriots, while 3rd through 6th grade boys and girls filled the two varsity halftimes with a peek at the future of Summit basketball.

Summit Jr. high scholars take third
Competition at Grangeville Monday evening in the monthly knowledge bowl league proved to be intense, as three area teams battled for 1st place throughout the third and final round. Teams from Orofino, Prairie, Nezperce, and Summit Academy found themselves in a virtual tie midway through that round, then finished Orofino first -255, Nezperce second235, Summit third - 200 and Prairie close behind. Varying bets on the third and final venture question provided the final margin of victory, as most teams were able to come up with the required answers on famous sayings like "Fat cat," "Dark horse," etc.
Highlighting the evening was the third quarter run of the Prairie seventh graders who entered the third round far behind, but answered all but three of the 15 third round questions to pull into contention, and the second round math question answered only by Summit whose successful 50-point bet launched them into contention.
Summit's team, this contest consisting of Josh Frei, Dylan Prigge, Mary Shears, Jenn Wemhoff, all 8th graders, and Rachel Wemhoff, 7th grade, and others unable to attend this meet will travel to CV in March for the next competition, with high school students traveling to Timberline for their next meet, February 13th.

Teacher Day celebrated at Summit Academy
By Maria Osborne
On January 30th, the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, Summit Academy celebrated Teacherís Day.  All of the teachers at Summit are very hard working and excellent examples to us.  The Parent Association enlisted the help of the high school students to show their appreciation by serving the teachers lunch.  Some of the mothers cooked a lovely three-course meal while the Juniors and Seniors served it to their wonderful teachers.  All of them are awesome people who have taught us many things.  Their words and actions have been a key part in not only our school work but our faith as well.  All of them have helped us grow closer to Christ and His mother and for than they deserve much more than was given.  We wish all teachers a Happy Teacherís Day.
