teams lose twice
Summit teams experienced a two-loss week this past week, as the Patriot volleyball team, stricken by flu, missing two starters, and out of sync dropped three straight games to Division II foe Culdesac, to extend their string of losses for one more week. Match scores for the evening were not available at the time of this printing, but definitely represented one of the more difficult evenings of the year for the young Patriots who have been in five game matches a big part of the year.
With starters Rachel Wemhoff back from the flu, and Savannah Prigge returned to action, the Patriots travel to Nezperce Tuesday evening, then finish their home season here against Lapwai Thursday night, the evening dedicated to the seniors who will be playing their last home game on the volleyball courts. Next week the regular season ends with a match against Prairie and Deary in a tri-match Saturday, then a final the following Tuesday in another tri-match at Highland, featuring Summit, Nezperce, and Culdesac.
Meanwhile, Summitís junior high girls suffered only their second loss of the season, dropping a hard fought 22-14 decision to the Kubs 8th grade team there. Summit shots repeatedly rolled around the rim and out, and Kamiah finally managed to break free from Summitís tenacious defense, as they rallied from a 6-4 shaky lead at half time to outscore the local girls 10 to 4 in the third quarter, and managed a 6 to 6 tie in the fourth to five them their final edge.
The team will be playing in two more games this week, traveling to Highland to take on Lewis County on Tuesday, and Peter and Paul in Grangeville Thursday.
