Patriots win 3of 4
Patriot girls from Summit dropped an error-filled game to league power CV last week, then regained their winning ways with victories over Timberline, Culdesac, and Salmon River, the latter two games both Saturday as part of the Husky tourney held in the Highland gym last Saturday.
Traveling to CV last Tuesday, the Patriots proved to be their own worst enemy, as they turned the ball over to the opportunistic Rams 28 times, then were able to convert only 8 of 18 attempts from the free throw line. Quarter scores as follows show the 20-12 deficit Summit endured during the second quarter, in what was otherwise a fairly even game. Quarter scores for the evening: 11-15, 23-35, 37-51, ending with a final 50-65. Scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals data for the evening: Jaime Chmelik 4,5,0,0; Nicole Frei 0,2,1,0; Tara Stubbers 5,11,0,0; Brooke Schumacher 3,3,0,1; Rachel Wemhoff 12,9,8,2; Savannah Kuther 4,2,0,1; Savanah Prigge 22,16,0,0 and one block. The loss, a league one, adjusted Summits season record to 10-2, with a league record of 4-2.
Summit jayvees also were handed a loss by the Rams, dropping their contest by a score of 46-23.
Traveling to Timberline Thursday last, Summit picked up their 11th win of the season and 5th league victory, downing the Spartans for the second time this season, 45-37. Turnovers were down for this game, but 34% shooting only from the line, 9 of 26, kept the scores wining margin down to single digits. Seven Patriots contributed to the score as follows: Chmelik 9, Frei 2, Stubbers 6, Schumacher 2, Wemhoff 8, Kuther 3, and Prigge 16. Prigge also led the effort on the boards with 13, aided by 10 from Stubbers, three each from Wemhoff, Schumacher, and Chmelik, and one each coming from several other Patriots. Chmelik, Stubbers, and Wemhoff were credited with 4,3, and 2 steals respectively.
Sumit actually fell behind 32-28 at the end of the third, after holding leads of 15-13 at the quarter and 23-19 at the half, but outscored the Spartans 17 to 5 in the fourth with full court pressure to end the game on the winning side.
In the prelim, Summit jayvees lost a heartbreaker, dropping a 33 t o31 contest after pulling into a tie with a minute remaining after being down 25 to 21 at the end of the third.
Traveling to Craigmont Saturday to participate in the girls division of the Husky tournament, Summit picked up two easy vicories, with subs playing significantly in both contests. Summit downed Culdesac 53-23 in the first game, with nine Patriots scoring as follos, with rebounds added: Chmelik 7,4; Frei 5,4; Jenn Wemhoff 0,0; Stubbers 4,7; Schumacher 2,4; Wemhoff 8,4; Courtney Schwartz 0,0; Cassidy Stubbers 2,1; Kuther 2,2; Rachel Uhlenkott 2,1; Vicki Schlader 0,4; and Prigge 21-12. Wemhoff added 7 assists to lead that stat, while Uhlenkott and Schlader with 2 each led the steals department.
Summits second win of the game came over depleted Salmon River, down to five players because of injuries, with the final score showing 53-35, again with Summit subs playing more than half of the game. Scoring and rebounding for the Patriots: Chmelik 10,0; Frei 0,0; Jenn Wemhoff 0,0; Schumacher 4,1; Wemhoff -7,1; Courtney Schwartz 4,1; Tara Stubbers 2,3; Cassidy Stubbers 6,6; Kuther 4,2; Uhlenkott 6,8; Schlader 6,8; and Prigge 8,4. Wemhoff and Schumacher led the assists stat with 4 and 3 respectively.
Next action this week for the Patriots are league matches at Highland Friday, and Summit hosting Genesee. Action begins at 6:00 with one-half of a jayvee game prelim with Troy, and a varsity contest with Genesee, both visiting teams lacking sufficient players for full jayvee contests. Then this coming Monday, the Patriots travel to Lapwai to take on the league-leading Wildcats.
District competition for the Patriots will again be on the neutral Highland floor, with games scheduled for Feb 1 and 3, and Feb 8 if needed. Winner of the district will qualify for the state tourney coming up two weekends later.
Summit boys even record at 6-6
An unusual weekend for the Summit Academy boys team produced three wins over the weekend, breaking a losing streak against some of the Division One teams in the Whitepine League, and in the process, raising their season record to 6 and 6.
Playing at PHS Friday, the Patriots took the measure of Division II foe Highland, 53-40, with quarter scores of 11-8, 29-19, and 43-30 at the breaks. David Johnson, working back to his earlier form with 14 points and Dylan Prigge with 17 led the scoring for the Patriots Austin Chmelik, Josh Frei, and Josh Schlader adding 6 each, and Derek Nuxoll adding 4. Frei led the effort on the boards for Summit, pulling down 10, with Prigge adding 8, Johnson 5, and Chmelik 4. Prigge handed out 6 assists, with Frei and Johnson adding 2 each. Johnson also had 3 steals to his credit with one block; and Chmelik added two to lead that department.
Earlier in the evening, the summit jayvees won their second of the season with a 47 to 24 win over the junior Huskies, with scoring provided mainly by Anthony Chmelik-13, James Rockwell-10, Shane Stubbers and Josh Schlader with 6 each, and the remaining scores scattered over the remaining four who played. Rockwell with 6, Schlader with 5, and 4 each from Stubbers and Justin Dempsey led the effort on the boards.
Saturday concluded the unusual weekend for the patriots, as the varsity boys took on Salmon River and Highland once again in the Husky one day tourney, winning both in impressive fashion, and raising their season record to 6 and 6.
Game one for the Patriots Saturday matched them against Salmon River, with the local boys coming out on top 40-26, the Patriot defense holding the Savages to single digits in each quarter, 6,7,9, and 4. Scoring for summit: Nuxoll-5, Johnson-12, Prigge-8, Frei-11, and Schlader-4. Jayvees Rockwell, Stubbers and Anthony Chmelik also saw action in the game but did not contribute to the scoring. Rebounds data recorded 3 for Nuxoll, 1 for Stubbers, 3 for Austin Chmelik, 6 for Johnson, 2 for Anthony Chmelik, 5 for Prigge, 8 for Frei, and 5 for Schlader. Prigge, Austin Chmelik, and Stubbers led the assist department with 4,3, and 2 respectively, while Prigge recorded 3 steals and one block.
Back on the floor two games later, the Patriots again took the measure of the host Huskies from Highland, rolling to a 65 to 34 win based on 26 of 44 shooting from the floor, and 9 of 11 from the line. Josh Frei had a rare and unbelievable night, netting all nine of his two-point goals, adding one for one from the three circle, and topping it off with a perfect 4 for 4 from the line for a game high of 25 points. Frei also added 6 boards, 2 assists, and 5 steals to his performance for the evening. Other Patriots added scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals as follows: Rockwell-0,0,1,0; Nuxoll 4,1,0,2; Stubbers 0,1,0,0; Dempsey 0,0,0,0; Austin Chmelik 10,0,3,4; Johnson 10,8,2,3; Anthony Chmelik 0,0,0,0; Prigge 14,4,5,1 and a block; and Schlader 2,6,0,1 and 1 block. Jayvee Dan Wemhoff was the only Patriot not playing, on the injured list at the time. Scores at the quarter breaks, with subs seeing much action after the first: 20-4; 33-16; 53-25, and the final 65-34.
