Summit volleyball loses twice in 5 games; Jr. High girls basketball splits games
Summit volleyballers continue to provide their competition all they can handle, but again last week saw their chances for a match victory disappear in a tense and final 15-point fifth game.  Playing the Kendrick Tigers last Tuesday at Highland, Summit jayvees lost their first game 13-25, but came back in the second to record a 25-18 win for a split for the evening.  With a shortage of players on both sides, the third tie-breaker game was dropped, and the two teams went immediately into the varsity match. . . .
Summit Patriot girls split their pair of games last week, losing a heartbreaker to Grangeville Middle School 26 to 23 after roaring out to a eight point lead, 20-14 with one minute left in the 3rd Q.  The fourth proved to be a disaster, as the Bulldog girls suddenly got the hot hand, and connected on a free throw and six two-pointers in the final quarter to pull ahead of the Patriots, thus handing the local girls their first loss of the season. . . .

Joe Schumacher of Greencreek spotted this moose Saturday morning Sept. 26th.  He first saw it in a field by the dumpster right before the Greencreek Hill and then it came across the field (south towards Elaine Schumacher’s house) and then it ran down the road (Greencreek Hwy.) in front of Elaine’s house towards Cottonwood.  It finally turned left on the next corner and ran behind the Johnny Arnzen place. Photos by Joe Schumacher.
