girls 1-1 on the week
Hosting White Pine foe Deary at Highland last week proved to be a long and tedious loss for the Summit Patriot girls who for the second match in a row, saw a two-game lead fritter away, and drop their contest to the Mustangs by a 3 - 2 margin. Scores in the hotly contested game were 15 - 25, 22 - 25, both going Summit's way, then 25 - 18, 25 - 15, and 15 - 7 for the Mustangs. An errant serve here and there and a few crucial unforced errors on the part of the young Patriots proved their undoing. The five-game loss after taking the first two games duplicated the results Summit experienced one week earlier against Division II foe Highland. Summit jayvees on the other hand took 2 of 3 from their opponents in another hotly contested set of matches.
Back to Highland on Thursday, the Patriots turned the tables on Highland, taking a three-set, highly contested match from the Huskies to reverse the outcome endured one week earlier.
With Jamie Chmelik and Nicole Frei hitting on 26 of 29 serves, the Patriots outlasted their opponents 25 - 19, 25 - 23, and 27 - 25 to pick up their
5th win of the season, leaving them with a 4 and 4 record against White Pine opponents. At the Division II level, the Patriots evened their record to 2 and 2, with games with Timberline and Nezperce on the horizon leading into district competition in October qualifying 1½ teams to state. At this point, Nezperce has the definite edge for first in the Division II league, with Highland, Timberline and Summit battling for the second spot.
In the preliminary, the Highland jayvees defeated Summit jayvees 2-l.
This Thursday, Sept 30, Summit will honor its two seniors in a match versus Clearwater Valley at the Prairie High gymnasium.
Summit Jr. High girls are now 3-1
Summit Academy's junior high girls basketball team added two victories to their record last week, giving them a 3 - 1 record for the new season, with
a hard fought win over Prairie 8th, then an easy victory over Orofino 8th at the new St. Peter and Paul gym in Grangeville.
In the Prairie game, Summit took an 11 - 6 lead at the end of the first quarter, with two field goals each from Megan Seubert and Ashlee Stubbers providing the bulk of the scoring. The halftime score, 17 - 13 still favored the Patriots, as two field goals from Kayla Schumacher and one from Rachel Waters helped Summit maintain their lead. The third quarter proved to be a standoff, as each team scored four points to end the quarter, 21 - 17. Then a three by Prairie's Ali Hoene tightened the score considerably, and the final margin, 24 - 22, Summit, resulted from three free throws by Schumacher, and two from Sydney Glimp of Prairie. The game, played at Prairie Middle School, turned out to be a prelim to Prairie 7th playing St. Peter and Paul 8th in a closely contested game, final score unavailable at this time.
Back in Grangeville as the host team, Summit posted an easy win over Orofino's 8th grade, cruising easily to a 54 - 6 win over an Orofino squad that simply could not hit the basket. Summit was again led in scoring by 8th graders Kayla Schumacher and Megan Seubert, but 7th and 6th graders contributed a lot of the scoring and effort, led by Joline Chmelik's 11 points, Kaitlin Stubbers and Ashlee Stubbers each adding 4 points to the total.
