starts season 4-6
Summit Academy volleyballers have reached a high point so far this season, to date having picked up four victories while enduring six defeats. Against White Pine opponents, Summit has recorded wins over Kendrick, Potlatch, and Timberline, while losing to White Pine's Nezperce, Troy, and Prairie. Non-league matchups include a early season loss to Orofino, and recently to Kamiah in last weekend's Kendrick tourney. Summit also lost a second time to Prairie at the same tournament, while defeating Coeur d Alene Charter there.
Scores for selected games include a three-match loss to undefeated-to-date Nezperce 10-25, 15-25, 20-25 in Summit's opening game; another tough loss to Kendrick tournament champion Orofino 12-25, 7-25, and 18-25.
On the winning side, Summit eased out a five-game win over Kendrick, 25-19, 25-17, 11-25, 12-25, then won the 15-point fifth game 15-9. In the Potlatch contest, Summit took three of four: 18-25, 25-14, 25-19, and 25-17. At home against Timberline, Summit prevailed 21-25, 25-16, 26-24, and 25-18, playing without hitter Savanah who was on a pre-scheduled family outing. The Coeur d' Alene scores at the Kendrick tourney favored Summit 21-25, 25-10, and 15- 10 in the best of three contest. Yet to win a game against Prairie, four of the five losses to our friends there were by scores of 21-25, 21-25, 19-25, and 22-25
in the Kendrick tournament, with the final game there dropped by Summit 10-25, as Prairie's closing server ran off 11 serves in a row.
New coach Julie Schumacher counts two seniors, Jamie Chmelik and Rachel Wemhoff, three juniors Nicole Frei, Savanah Prigge, and Courtney Schwartz, sophs Julia Osborne, Brooke Schumacher, and Cassidy Stubbers, and frosh Sarah Chmelik, Rachael Frei, Alexandria Rockwell, and Nicole Wemhoff on her 12 member squad.
Up-coming contests include Highland away Tuesday of this week, then a return match with Orofino Thursday of this week, in a Summit home game to
be played at Prairie Middle School. Game time 6:00 P.M. for the junior varsity prelim, with the varsity to follow.
This year, Summit is again an official member of the White Pine League, and one of four in Class I-A, Division 2. Other division two members are Highland, Nezperce, and Timberline, with a 1 and 1/2 representative formula for state competition this year. Summit’s goal is to finish no lower than second in the league, and thus qualify for the first time in volleyball for state competition.
Summit Academy starts new school year
Summit Academy began the first day of school September 1st, 2010 with 94 students and 32 families. All of the staff and teachers are committed to making this year the best ever for the students.
All classrooms welcomed new students on the first day, except the 7th and 8th graders. They have decided to be the veteran class, being excellent examples and showing the rest how we strive to meet our school motto, Excelsior, meaning “ever higher” in all that we do.
September 8th was a special day as each class celebrated the Birthday of Mary in a special way.
Other activities that have begun here at Summit are: volleyball for the high school girls. Their record thus far is 4-6 overall. The High School Knowledge Bowl team traveled to Kamiah for their first meet and did quite well for a first performance. The 7/8th grade girls’ basketball team has started practicing and will play their first game tonight at SPPS against Kamiah.
Mystery Night is fast approaching, September 25th, 2010. Being one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, it is a fun-filled evening with food, silent & live auctions, and the elimination raffle for a chance to win $10,000. If you would like to get in on a chance to win or participate at this event, call the school office at 962-5650 or contact any Summit Academy parent.
As this third week of school begins, we see school definitely underway: students already studying for their first tests, parents adjusting from summer to school schedules, and teachers carrying enthusiasm throughout the hallways as they prepare for more exciting days at school!!
