girls lose twice
With starter guard Kim Frei playing very limited time because of an ankle injury, Summit's girls dropped two contests last week, 31 to 40 to the girls from Salmon River, and 49 to 63 in a return match with North Idaho Christian school from Hayden, Idaho. The Patriots had earlier defeated Salmon River 40 to 25 in the opening round of New Meadow's Kickoff tourney, but had lost earlier to the NICS girls 49 to 39.
Scoring and rebound figures for Summit in the Salmon River game: Jaime Chmelik2 & 6, Danielle Stubbers - 12 & 10, Rachel Wemhoff - 11 & 4, Vicki Schlader0 & 9, Tara Stubbers - 6 & 7, and Jenn Wemhoff 0 & 1. Scores at the quarter marks: 8 -11, 13 - 22, 24 - 30, and 31 - 40.
Playing on the host NICS Royals floor in Hayden, the local girls again fell behind at the quarter breaks 14 - 16, 20 - 37, 37 - 51, and 49 - 63, with scoring and rebounding spread evenly across the squad as follows: Chmelik - 12 & 4, Danielle 15 & 10, Wemhoff - 10 & 5, Schlader - 4 & 5, and Tara - 4 & 3. Jenn Wemhoff played well on defense, but failed in the scoring column.
Summit girls play Pullman Christian this week on Tuesday, travel to Salmon River Wednesday night with the boys team, are at home against Orofino Saturday then conclude their season against New Meadows and Timberline before attending the three day invitational tourney hosted by Logos of Moscow at the end of the month.
Summit boys win 1 of 3
Against Salmon River a second time this season, this time at home, the Summit Patriots prevailed a second time, duplicating their win in the Kick -Off Tourney at New Meadows, this time rolling up a 64 to 34 win over their visitors.
Scores by quarters: 16 - 8, 27 - 10, 42 - 24, and 64 to 34 at the end, with scoring and rebounding as follows: Joseph Lustig 0 & 2, David Spencer 15 & 12, Zach Frei 7 & 3, Dylan Prigge 14 & 8, Dustin Lustig 17 & 4, David Johnson 0 & 0, William Schlader 0 & 3, Chase Nuxoll 10 & 5, and Josh Frei 1 & 1. The victory raised the Patriot's season record to 9 and 2.
A weekend trip up north to NICS on Friday and Logos the next day on Saturday ended with two losses for the local boys, as the team suffered losses of 52 to 48 against NICS, then endured one of their poorest outings of the year the next day in a 44 to 29 loss to Logos. Missing two starters and an injured Zach Frei, the Patriots fell behind fourteen points in the NICS game, only to rally furiously at the end, actually closing to 50 to 48 with possession of the ball, before a missed shot and two tree throws by their opponents squelched the rally.
Scoring and rebounding: Joseph Lustig - 2 & 1, Spencer - 15 & 11, Frosh Johnson with his best game of the year - 15 & 4, Schlader - 5 & 3, Nuxoll - 10 & 10, and Josh Frei - 1 & 2. Quarter scores in this contest: 8 - 9, 16 - 23, 29 - 41, and the final 48 -52.
The Logos outing the next afternoon was a disaster, as the local boys fought turnovers and other lapses repeatedly to fall to the Knights from Logos. Quarter scores illustrate the low offensive output of the Patriots, and are: 3 - 10, 11 - 18, 19 - 30, and the final 29 - 44.
Scoring and rebounding for the Patriots: Joseph Lustig - 2 & 2, Spencer - 19 & 6, Johnson - 2 & 3, Schlader - 0 & 1, Nuxoll- 6 & 10, and Josh Frei - 0 & 4. The double loss leaves the Patriot record at 9 & 4, with games remaining at home against Pullman Christian this Tuesday, New Meadows here next Tuesday, and away games with Salmon River, Lapwai, and Highland of Craigmont before they too will be part of the 8-team invitational tourney held at Logos in Moscow at the end of the month. Despite the last double loss, the boys record will be one of the best since Summit began high school ball several years ago.
