team wins a game
Summit Academyís high school volleyball team picked up their first evening victory last week as both jv and varsity squads traveling to Orofino, took on teams from that school
In the jv match, Summit lost all three matches to Orofinoís Frosh, but played some of their best ball of the season. The varsity however, playing almost flawless ball, and hitting a high percentage of their serves, manages their first win of the season, with scores of 25-15, 25-20, and 15-10 over their Orofino opponents, a mix of some jv and some varsity from their regular teams.
Earlier in the week, at Logos in Moscow, the jvís dropped three games to the Logos Knights, then the varsity, which followed, followed the same loosing path dropping their three matches by scores of 25-10, 25-14, and 25-11. Inconsistent serving proved to be the downfall for the Patriots, though all through the nigh, the Summit girls volleyed well, and won several long and exciting volleys.
Future action for the Summit girls will be at Highland Wednesday evening with both a jv and a varsity match, then in Cottonwood on Monday against Pullman Christian. The season then closes for the Patriots with a tourney at Logos in Moscow the weekend of 13 and 14. The Pullman Christian match is scheduled to be at Prairie Elementary this coming Monday evening.
Meanwhile, Summitís junior high girlís basketball team has been thick in the action, dropping both 7th and 8th grade games to Grangeville, the 8th grade trailing only 9 to 6 in the first half to lose at the end by 28 to 12. Results were the same at CV the next game, both teams losing, though again Summitís 8th, with only two regular 8th graders, held on right up to the end, when a poor fourth quarter saw them drop the contest 26 to 18.
Kamiah was next on the schedule, with the Summit 7th losing a thriller 19 to 16, then the 8th suffered the same late fate, dropping their game to the Kamiah girls by a close 25 to 23, with several Patriot shots failing to drop in the final minute. Nezperce next was more of the same, although the 7th team from Summit did eke out a 14 to 12 victory, but the 8th grade team saw their one point lead disappear in a flash as Seitz hit a three at the end to put the Nezperce/Craigmont Eagles up 30 to 28 at the end.
Traveling to Orofino last Thursday saw the Patriots with an extremely hot hand however, as the 7th grade game went to the Patriots 20 to 14, and Summitís 8th running away to a 42 to 21 victory, with subs playing almost all of the 4th against a pressing Orofino squad. The third quarter score in this contest was 38 to 12, Summit as the patriot ladies finally had the hot hand, and converted a big percentage of their shots.
Next action for the girls is at Prairie Tuesday of this week.
