girls are 4 and 0
Summit Academy girls ran their early season record to 4 wins without loss last week as they added two more victories to their opening two which earned them the championship plaque in New Meadow’s annual Kickoff tourney.
Last week, the local Patriots recorded an easy 63 to 14 win over the visiting Pullman Christian Eagles, then followed that up Thursday night with a hard fought 38 to 36 over Timberline, both contests held in the Prairie High School gym.
In the Pullman game, Prigge led all scores with 24, while pulling down 8 boards, followed by Chmelik’s 16 points and 2 boards, Rachel Wemhoff’s 9 points and 14 boards, and six points each by sisters Kim and Nicole Frei, with senior Kim registering 6 boards and frosh Nicole adding 7 off the glass. Stubbers also added 2 points while being credited with 3 rebounds off the glass.
Thursday night’s game proved much more of a challenge, as the Summit ladies watched their 24 to 10 half-time lead melt down to a two point deficit with one minute to go. A full-court drive by Wemhoff tied the score at 36 all with a minute to go, then after a missed shot by Timberline, Chmelik dropped in a layup off of a feed by Wemhoff with 2.9 seconds to go to close out the narrow victory 38-36. Scoring and rebounding figures for the patriots as follows: Chmelik 8 and 4, Wemhoff 14 and 2, Kim Frei 6 and 4, Prigge 4 And 4, and Stubbers 6 and 8. Nicole Frei also got into the game a couple of quarters, subbing for Chmelik and Prigge, each of who had to set out about a quarter and a half with foul trouble. Kim Frei did foul out late in the 4th quarter for the only Summit casualty that route, while Spartan Lundun Jared also went down via the 5-foul route. Hodges aided Jared in the Timberline scoring effort with 10 each, helped by Marshall with 8 and Stacy with 5.
Summit jayvees started their season with two victories also, easily defeating the jayvees from Pullman 33 to 7, then adding Timberline jayvees to their list with a score of 36 to 19.
Action continues this week for Summit teams with Meadows Valley girls’ and boys’ varsities here at home at Prairie Elementary Tuesday, then Culdesac girls and boys here Thursday at Prairie High, game times both evenings 6:00 and 7:30. Summit boys then travel Friday and Saturday to New Meadows for competition in the annual Kickoff tourney there, Salmon River, Meadows Valley, and Wilder being the other three teams.
