boys win final home game
Rebounding from their first loss of the year to Pullman Christian, Summit's high school boys turned on the steam in perhaps their best outing of the year last week at Prairie High School, closing out their home season with a resounding 72 to 56 victory over the visiting Eagles from Pullman.
Playing at Pullman the first game of the season, the local boys dropped a slow 31 to 37 contest to the same team, but this time, with senior Jacob Uhlenkott playing his last Summit home game, and the rest of the squad hitting on all cylinders, the Patriots moved out to a 23 to 19 lead at the half, then turned on the afterburners to outscore their visitors 49 to 37 in the second half.
Scoring for the Patriots: Uhlenkott - 18, Dustin Lustig - 18, David Spencer - 15, Dylan Prigge - 10, William Schlader -6, and Zach Frei - 5.
Earlier in the evening, the Summit jayvee squad cruised to a 46 to 33 win over the visiting Pullman jayvee, after running up a 30 to 11 score at halftime.
Michael Hattrup with 14, and Josh Frei with 7 led a balanced scoring parade, with six other Patriots scoring from two to six points.
Also during the evening, Summit's jayvee girls lost a close overtime battle to Pullman's' varsity girls, dropping the contest 34 to 25 after tying the game at 25 all with a last second shot by Annie Osborne. All six Summit girls playing hit the scoring column, with Kim Frei netting 8, Tara Stubbers, Danielle Stubbers, and Osborne chipping in 4, Lynn Rehder - 3, and Lauren Chmelik - 2.
Both Summit girl and boy varsities will be traveling to Logos in Moscow this Thursday for action in a three-day tourney there, the boys playing first at 9:30 Thursday morning, the girls 8:30 Friday morning. Wins and losses then will determine the remainder of the tourney, with championship games Saturday night.
Summit scholars fall to fourth place
Up with the leaders through two rounds of monthly academic bowl action last week at Prairie, Summit's two-team squad fell on hard times during the third and final round to end up fifth for the evening, and fourth place in the nine team league for the year.
Grangeville again took first place, for the third time in the four meets held so far, while Orofino finished second for their best showing this year. With Nezperce finishing third, and newcomer this year, Kamiah, finishing fourth, edging Summit 395 to 391, the Patriots found themselves nudged out of third and into fourth place, with team totals as follows, based on 10 points for a first place finish, 9 for a second, etc.: Grangeville - 39, Nezperce - 31, Orofino - 28, Summit - 26, with the other five teams, CV, Highland, Kamiah, Prairie, and Timberline bunched up close behind.
Next action for the high school teams is in Orofino in February.
