Summit Academy said farewell to four seniors at their final basketball game hosted here with Salmon River at Prairie Elementary last Tuesday. Introductions of seniors and their parents preceded comments by their coaches, who praised the students for four years of dedication to Summit's basketball teams. The large crowd of parents and supporters were then treated to two final-season victories, as both the girls and the boys teams won rather easily over the visitors from Salmon River. Game details not available.
Ending their home game season and their regular season careers at Summit were: Kim Frei, daughter of Rose and Virgil Frei, Dustin Lustig, son of Gina and Domie Lustig, Joseph Lustig, son of Nancy and Ed Lustig, and Chase Nuxoll, son of Denise and Mike Nuxoll.
The Summit teams finished 16 and 4 with the girls, and 12 and 8 with the boys, with IHSAA playoff dates still in the future. Summit girls will travel to Rathdrum
this weekend, along with Culdesac from our district to take on the top two teams from the north, with winner to state, and runnerup scheduled to a playin game at Grangeville shortly thereafter. Summit is scheduled to play Mullan, the number two team from the north at 7:30 Friday Night at Lakeland High School.

Summit names Virtue Winners
Summit Academy's recent virtue campaign resulted in the following winners as announced by officials this week. The virtue selected was responsibility, and the man to be emulated was Juan Diego, a mid-American peasant who was visited by the Blessed Virgin in the 16th century, and whose rose-filled cloak with a picture of Mary inside touched off a wave of conversions in that century.
Students named: High school- Kim Frei, Josh Frei, Rachel Wemhoff, Michael Rehder, and Savanah Prigge.
7th and 8th - Julia Osborne and Abby Chmelik
5th and 6th - Kayla and Justin Schumacher
3rd and 4th - Chris and Lucy Osborne
1st and 2nd - Andrew Schlader and Eric Chmelik
The next virtue campaign puts the focus on constancy, with the saint to be studied and imitated being Elizabeth Ann Seton, a mother of several who later became instrumental in caring for other children.
