Night a success
Mystery Night 2009 was a success thanks to all those who came to support Summit Academy's main fundraiser!
Talented individuals who wanted to honor all those who are currently serving and all those who have served our country faithfully, skill-fully created this patriotic extravaganza, helping people display their love for the red, white, and blue.
The prizes from the "Celebrate America" mystery night were revealed Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 at the Greencreek Community hall. As the evening progressed, the suspense built as slowly but surely names were eliminated from being a part of the prestigious ranks of the top ten finalists. However, as the night drew near its end, the finalists were announced along with their prizes.
Placing tenth was Mr. Joe Ahlers, who received two movie passes to the Blue Fox movie theatre, and a dinner for two at Palenques Restaurant. Ninth place winner, Intermountain Woods, won an American Basket. Percy Roeper took home the eighth place prize of a fifty-dollar gift certificate to be used at A-1 Flower Shop in beautiful downtown Cottonwood. Squeaking in seventh came Jeanne Wren, who luckily won a fun filled game basket. Sixth place winner, Nick Seubert, won dinner for two at Rooster's Landing in Clarkston, and two tickets to the Lewiston Civic Theatre. Making the top five, barely, was Felix Nuxoll, who won one hundred dollars. Cory Wemhoff received two hundred dollars. Anthony Flerchinger, the third place winner, took home three hundred dollars. Second place went to Tony Chmelik, who won four hundred dollars. Finally, the grand prizewinner was Anthony Flerchinger, who won ten thousand dollars to be used at various businesses in the area, such as: Grangeviulle Builder's Supply, Lindsley's Home Furnishings, Cottonwood Foods, and Sonnen Meats. Thank you to all who supported this event!

Summit girls start 2-0
Traveling to New Meadows last weekend for participation in Meadows Valley’s annual Kickoff torney, Summit Academy’s girls pick up a couple of wins to take the tourney title for the second year in a row.
Friday’s contest with Council proved to be a tough one, as the local ladies connected on only 14 of 53 floor shots taken, for a cold 27%, while hitting just a bit better from the line, 7 or 15. Behind the first three quarters 6-10, 14-18, and 22-26, the Patriots turned up the defensive pressure in the fourth to take the lead and eke out a narrow 35-32 win at the end, with 3 of 4 shooting from the foul line critical to the victory.
Scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals in that order for the game: Jamie Chmelik: 7,5,2,1; Nicole Frei: 3,2,1,1; Rachel Wemhoff: 12,6, 2, 2 with 2 blocked shots; Brooke Schumacher: 0,1,0,0.
Turnovers for the game for the Patriots numbered 15 which contributed to the early woes in the game.
Returning Saturday to take on the host Meadows Valley hosts, Summit turned up the shooting heat, netting 25 of 62 from the floor for a success percentage of 40%, though hitting only a dismal 1 of 9 from the line; still enough to take leads of 16-7, 25-13, 39-22, and a final 51-29 to take the tourney championship. Again, scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals stats for the game: Chmelik: 5,9,1,0; Frei: 6,4,2,1; Tara Stubbers, in her first game back from sickness: 2,4,1,0; Schumacher: 0,2,0,1; Wemhoff: 12,8,10,2; Kuther: 0,0,0,2; Rachel Uhlenkott; 0,2,0,0; and Prigge: 26,12,0,4 with one block.
Turnovers for the Summit was down to 13 for the game.
Other members of the Patriot squad making the trip but normally playing only at the jv level: Jenn Wemhoff, courtney Schwartz, Cassidy Stubbers, and Vicki Schlader.
Tuesday of this week, the Patriots travel to Salmon River, then Thursday, they will be at Clearwater Valley for a jv and varsity matchup.
Coaching the Patriots again this year is Pete Prigge.
Sincerity winners are name
Selected as Sincerity winners for the month of October, as the students best illustrating that virtue, and modeled by St. Francis of Assissi, noted for his love of all creation and genuine concern for his fellow man were the following:
They are named and shown with the photo below.
The virtue program, with a new virtue selected each month, challenges students to work hard on improving in the selected area, with a saint chosen each month to imitate. November’s virtue is Friendship, with the saint chosen, St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, an 18th century young lady who ended up a sister in the Society of the Sacred Heart and a foundress of six houses in her society west of the Mississippi dedicated to serving the native Indians in the area. She died in 1852 at the age of 83, and was canonized July 3, 1988. Her feast day is November 18.
