girls pick up 2 more wins
After taking the Meadows Valley Kickoff tourney two weeks ago with wins over Council and New Meadows, Summit Academy’s Patriot girls added two more victories to their early season effort, taking a relatively easy 48-18 win over Salmon River, then coming out on top of a more highly contested battle with Orofino, posting a 47-34 win at the end.
Quarter scores in the Salmon River game: 19-4, 28-11, 40-18, and the final 48-18. With no jv game preceding, all members of the Summit team, varsity and jv, played extensively in the game, with scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals recorded as follows: Jaime Chmelik- 4,8,0,1; Nicole Frei- 6,3,0,0; Jenn Wemhoff- 0,0,0,0,; Tara Stubbers- 4,8,1,0; Brooke Schumacher- 0,0,0,2; Julia Osborne- 0,0,0,0; Courtney Schwartz- 2,1,0,0; Rachel Wemhoff- 12,6,4,1 and 1 block; Cassidy Stubbers- 2,3,0,0; Savannah Kuther- 0,0,1,1; Rachel Uhlenkott- 4,4,0,1; Vicki Schlader- 0,2,1,0; and Savanah Prigge- 14,8,0,0. Starters in the game played just a bit over half, as the young Salmon River girls were unable to score effectively against the Summit defense.
Traveling to Orofino Thursday, the local ladies posted 13-6, 27-21, 34-27 scores at the quarter breaks, then outscored their opponents 13-7 in the final frame to record their fourth win of the young season, 47-34. Defense and a spread offense in the final quarter proved to be the Orofino undoing. Scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals data follow: Chmelik- 13,7,0,3; Frei- 3,1,1,0; Stubbers- 2,6,2,0; Schumacher- 0,0,0,0,; Wemhoff- 6,2,7,1; Prigge- 19,14,2,2 and 1 block.
Prior to the varsity game at Orofino, the Summit jayvees tackled their first true game of the season, starting off very slow with a 0-9 deficit at the quarter break, then scoring 6 to Orofino’s 9 in the second quarter. Summit actually outscored their hosts 19-18 in the second half, but the first quarter deficit proved to be much to overcome, as they fell 25-36 in their season opener. Scoring and rebounding for the junior ladies: Frei- in one quarter-6,1; Jenn Wemhoff- 0,0; Schumacher- 5,0; Osborne-2,3; Schwartz- 2,1; Stubbers- 2,3; Schlader- 6,15.
With the four game sessions ended, the Summit girls now take off until after the Thanksgiving break, a White Pine league match with the Lewis County girls to be played at Highland December 10.
Summit jr. high boys are 2-2
Four games into the new season, Summit Academy’s junior high boys basketball team has posted a 2 win and 2 loss record to date, with an easy win over Highland’s 7th grade in the opener, and a close 36-34 win over CV 8th in their last game.
Losses to date include a 48-19 score to Grangeville Public 8th, then another loss, 34-49 to the 8th grade team from Asotin.
With only nine players suited up this year, Summit has paired up with St. Peter and Paul of Grangeville, with Summit and the Ravens from there alternating occasionally who plays the 7th and who plays the eighth teams from other league schools. Peter and Paul also has only a smaller number of boys on their team, thus triggering the shared team situation.
Team members for Summit this year include Matthew Schwartz, the only 8th grader; seventh graders Nathan Beckman, Josh Lustig, Isiah Nida, and Rhett Schlader, and sixth graders Lance Goeckner, Justin Schumacher, Thomas Schwartz, and Dean Stubbers.
Coaching the Summit boys: Domie Lustig, Matt Beckman, and Scot Schlader. Next action for the Patriots will be Lapwaii 8th at Grangeville this week Tuesday, then 7th grade teams at Timber line and Peter and Paul at Summit after the Thanksgiving break.
