Summit Jr. High Girls start 2-0
Starting off their 2009 season with a bang, Summit Academy’s junior high girls logged two victories each, the preliminaries at the seventh grade level and the main game at the eighth grade level.
At Nezperce to take on the Lewis County Eagles in their opener, Summit 6th 7th roared out to an early lead, then coasted at bit to record their first victory of the new season, 46-9. Most of the game was played with Summit 6th and 7th graders, with seventh graders Kayla Schumacher and Megan Seubert leading the way, but each playing only two quarters in the contest.
In the “A” game which followed, the host Eagles proved to be a difficult foe, as inability to hit slowly dropped the local girls into a 12-6 deficit at halftime, defense being the key for both teams during this period. Things opened up a bit for the Patriots in the second half however, as the local girls slowly caught up to end the game on the long end of a 17-14 score, holding the Eagles to one field goal only the entire second half.
Traveling to Timberline last Thursday, the Patriots logged two more victories, prevailing in the opening game, 28-2, and the following main event 33-10. Next contest for the Summit girls is Grangeville Elementary, Tuesday Sept. 22, then on to CV Thursday this same week.
Compromising the entire Summit squad this year: 8th graders Abby Chmelik, Sarah Chmelik, Kayla Duclos, Rachael Frei, Sarah Kuther, Megan Rehder, and Nicole Wemhoff. 7th graders Kayla Schumacher and Megan Seubert, and 6th graders Jolene Chmelik, Ashlee Stubbers, and Kaitlen Stubbers. Coaching the girls is Mrs. Julie Schumacher.
Summit Volleyball team still seeking first win
Summit Academy volleyballers, stilling searching for the magic answer, dropped two more matches this past week, both in dramatic fashion, as the fifth game in each case proved to be the death blow to the chance they had for their first win of the season.
Playing at the Middle School last Thursday, Summit won the first game, 25-20, dropped the second 20-25, came back to win the third 25-22, then lost the fourth 25-20. Facing their fourth fifth game this season against the Salmon River Savages, the local girls miscued on a couple of serves to see their win wither away, as they were downed 15-10 in the abbreviated tie breaker. The loss marked the second close loss of the local girls to their friends from Salmon River.
Paired up with Highland for the second time at Prairie Elementary this Monday, this time a White Pine League game, the Patriots again fell prey to a five game marathon, and a loss in the final tie breaking round. Scores for the evening: 25-23, 25-22, 18-25, 14-25, and 13-15 in the final, as two of the last three Patriot serves went astray. This marked the second time this season the Patriots took a two-game lead on the Huskies, only to drop the final three, leaving them still winless for the season.
