Summit boys lose to Nezperce at District
Playing at LCSC Saturday, Feb. 20, Summit boys eased out to a 15-8 lead gave over rival Nezperce in the second quarter, in a winnerís bracket contest of Division II rivals, but then endured the wheels falling off, as the Indians put together a 20 point plus run to take what proved to be an insurmountable lead.  
The final spread exceeded 15 points, and put Summit back into a loser-out position, game three for the Patriots being at Highland this Wednesday, game time 7:00 p.m.  The winner will then have another chance to take on league champ Nezperce for the sole trip to state allowed to District I, 1-A, Division 2 teams.
Summit success again has been dimmed a bit by recurring leg problems for starter and productive post player David Johnson, whose action has been limited in the tourney as during the latter part of the year to limited minutes each game.
