Junior High boys are 1 and 2
One quarter of the way through their current season, Summit's junior high boys' basketball teams stand at one win and two losses, both the “A” and the “B” teams recording the same record.
The “A” team, consisting of 8th graders Austin Chmelik, Derik Nuxoll, Michael Rehder, Josh Schlader, and Shawn Seubert, with sub assistance from seventh graders David Knappert, Shane Stubbers, and Danny Wemhoff started their season shorthanded and endured a 47 to 16 loss at the hands of fast-breaking Grangeville Bulldogs. Then, traveling to CV, the Patriots closed the losing gap a bit, falling 39 to 19 to a tall squad featuring two six footers the Summit boys could not stop. Play improved immensely in this game over their first outing however, with Austin, Derek, Michael, Shawn, and Shane all figuring in the scoring. On to Timberline in their third outing, Austin with seven, Derik with five, Shawn with eleven, and Josh with six led the way to the Patriot's first victory of the season, recording a 29 to 15 victory over the Spartans.
Missing Danny Wemhoff, still recovering from a broken finger, the Patriot “B” squad lost their first season's outing to the Bulldogs from Grangeville, 40 to 26, then in their second outing, lost a thrilling triple overtime battle at CV by a score of 29 to 28. Their third game, at Timberline, also produced their first victory of the season, a 38 to 18 win over the host Spartans there. The Summit “B” team roster includes seventh graders David Knappert, Shane Stubbers, and Danny Wemhoff, sixth grader Matthew Schwartz, and fifth graders Nathan Beckman and Rhett Schlader. Both this team and the older “A” team have featured excellent teamwork and scoring by nearly all players under the guidance of coach Jim Chmelik.
Next Action for Summit was at Prairie this past Tuesday, and Nezperce on Thursday, Nov. 29.
