Summit hosts Christmas Party
Summit juniors and seniors were joined by their kindergarten school mates last Wednesday as both groups traveled to the Monastery of St. Gertrude to put on a Christmas party there for the sisters.Summit students sing during their Christmas party.
Songs, gifts, cookies, drinks, and pleasant visits all were on the agenda for the 2:00 to 4:00 session, as both the high schoolers and the kindergartners visited with the sisters, many from the monastery infirmary and others stationed there at the time.
For the high schoolers, this was their final visit which had taken them on a four retirement home trip earlier in the day, each visit consisting again of songs and visits with the retired folks therein.  Starting at Brookside in Orofino, the Summit singers next went to Grangeville Health and Rehab in Grangeville, then to both houses associated with Meadow Lark care.  From there the students traveled to St. Gertrudes for the final stop of the day.
The retirement home visitation by Summit upperclassmen takes place twice yearly, with stops at several spots in Lewiston scheduled for this spring.  Also, the same high school group will be at the Cottonwood Senior Citizen center this coming Tuesday for 15 to 20 minutes of entertainment and visitation.

Summit boys win twice
Thursday and Saturday last week resulted in two victories for Summit Academy boys as they traveled to Riggins for a win 45 to 36 over the Savages there, then cruised to an easy 76 to 25 victory over the Highland Huskies at a home game at Prairie High School.  The double win moves the Summit record to 4 and 3 for the season with five games remaining before the end of the year.
Score by quarters in the Salmon River win; Summit down 6-9 in the first, then taking command with a 15-4 second quarter, and a 14to 12 third, and a close 10-11 final resulting in the 45-46 score.  Dylan Prigge with 16, David Johnson with 14, and Dustin Lustig with 11 led the balanced scoring effort with an additional 2 tossed in each by Joseph Lustig and Case Nuxoll.  The rebounding effort also reflected a team effort, Joseph Lustig having 4, Dustin Lustig with 6, Johnson with 7, Prigge with 6, Nuxoll with 5 and Josh Frei with 7.  Prigge with 7 and Dustin Lustig with 3 headed the assist list.
Thursday’s home game with Highland started off tight, the score 11 to 11 half way through the first, then Summit opened up offensively with several steals and fast breaks for a 22 to 11 lead at the 1st quarter break, then continued to pour it on in the second, taking a 49-13 lead at the half way point.  With jayvee players playing most of the third, the scoring evened out a bit, ending 58 to 21 at the three quarter mark and with several starters back in, the game closed out 76 to 25 at the end.  Prigge led all scorers with 30 on 13 of 15 goals from the floor and 4 of 5 from the line, while Johnson added 17, Joseph Lustig 8, Frei 8, Nuxoll 6, Dustin Lustig 5, and 2 from frosh sub Austin Chmelik.  Johnson and Joseph Lustig led the rebounding effort with 12 and 6 respectively.
Action this week includes a return match with Timberline at home Tuesday, then a two-game session in Culdesac’s pre-Christmas tourney Friday and Saturday.  Summit will also participate in CV’s tourney during the Christmas break.

Summit girls now 8 and 0
Patriot ladies ran their season record to 8 consecutive wins last week with a second close win over the Timberline Spartans, 45 to 41, then an easier 42 to 17 victory over Salmon River on their floor Thursday night.  Patriot jayvees also added a second 40 to 36 win over the Timberline jayvees, raising their record for the year to 3 and 0.  No action is scheduled this week for the lady Patriots until Friday and Saturday when they will play in Culdesac’s pre-Christmas tourney, then a week later in the Christmas break tourney hosted by CV.
The Timberline away game was again a close one throughout, much like the 38 to 36 victory the Patriots had earned earlier at home against the Spartans, with scores by quarters, Summit first, as follows: 13-12, 12-9, 11-9, and 9-11.  Scoring and rebounding for the Patriots: Jamie Chmelik 8/5, Rachel Wemhoff 10/8, Kim Frei 6/2, Nicole Frei ½, Savannah Prigge 17/10, and Tara Stubbers 3/13.  Wemhoff headed the assists statistic with 4.
Thursday’s trip to Salmon River proved to be a bit easier with scores by quarters: 19-2, 12-4, 9-0, and 2-11 in the fourth with Summit jayvees playing most of the quarter.  Scoring and rebounding stats for the game: Chmelik 14/3, Savanna Kuther 6/1, Wemhoff 11/3, Kim Frei 2/2, Nicole Frei 2/1, Prigge 6/9, Stubbers 0/1, and Vicki Schlader off the bench 1/5.  Subs Jenn Wemhoff, Rachel Uhlenkott and Courtney Schwartz also played most of the fourth quarter.
