Games away at Culdesac and Riggins resulted in two easy wins for Summitís ladies last week, as the local girls ran away from Division II foe Highland/Culdesac Tuesday by a score of 56 to 26, then duplicated the effort the next night overwhelming Salmon River 49 to 20 on their own floor. The two victories set the Summit season record to date at 7 and 3, with a 4 and 1 record in the White Pine League.
Scoring in the Culdesac contest was spread equally over nine of the eleven girls present for the evening, JY subs playing over half of the game. Starter Jamie Chmelik had 4 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals and an assist during her brief time in the game, while Nicole Frei, also a varsity starter, added 10 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. The remaining three starters: Rachel Wemhoff 6 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals and 6 assists; Brooke Schumacher 2, 0, 1 and 1; and Savanah Prigge 10, 5, 2 and 1.

Wednesday night at Riggins produced quarter scores of 20-0, 26-10, 36-14 and 49-20, as again the Summit JVs played over half of the game. Points, rebounds, steals and assists in that game follow: Nicole Frei 2, 5, 2, 0; Rachel Wemhoff 6, 2, 4, 5; Brooke Schumacher 6, 0, 0, 1; Prigge 16, 7, 3, 1 for the regular starter input as Jamie Chmelik did not suit up for this game.

Summit boys lose twice
Traveling to Riggins Wednesday for a rematch with the Salmon River boys proved a somewhat duplicate outcome, as the Patriots fell for the second time to the tall and aggressive Savages, this time by a narrower score, 41-64.
Having dropped their first contest in the opening game of Meadows Valleyís Tip-Off Tourney to Salmon River 29-54, the Patriots stepped it up a notch with an improved shooting percentage and managed to make the game competitive in the first quarter, falling behind 14-19. But the second quarter proved a disaster as the local boys managed only 2 points while their hosts were ringing up 15. The second half proved to be more of a contest as Summitís 25 fell only 5 short of Salmon Riverís total that half.
Austin Chmelik had the hot hand in the contest, connecting on 5 of 7 twoís attempts while draining 4 of 10 treys, for a total of 22 points. He also added 9 boards, 2 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Derek Nuxoll added 6 points, 10 boards, an assists, a block and two steals while Shane Stubbers added 9 points, 2 boards, 3 assists and a steal to the effort. David Waters pulled down 7 boards and had 2 assists and 2 steals during the evening with Michael Waters adding 2 points, r boards, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block. Matthew Schwartz added 1 goal from the field while pulling down 3 boards and swiping 2 from the Savages as did Danny Wemhoff during his time in the game.
Overall, the Patriots were unable to stop Salmon Riverís big men, Ream scoring 22, Manley 11, and Couie 18, all using their 6í4Ē plus height to their advantage.
Results were not much better for the Patriots traveling to Potlatch Thursday, as they played very competitively for 3 quarters, but a disastrous third quarter, in which they were outscored 31-7, by their undefeated hosts, led to their downfall 74-38. The score at the first break was 22-14 and Summit actually pulled even with the Loggers at 25-25 midway through the second quarter buoyed by two Chmelik treys, two goals from Nuxoll and one each from Stubbers and Schwartz The Patriots actually outscored the Loggers 14-3 in the frame, and hung in with a 4 point effort in the fourth while holding Potlatch to 8. But a constant full-court pressure throughout the entire game, contributing to 32 turnovers, plus fatigue, as Potlatch constantly ran in fresh subs, proved to be more than Summit could handle.
Scoring, rebounding and steals, block or assists, in that order, follow for the Patriots: Nuxoll 6, 2, 3; Stubbers 8, 4, 1; Wemhoff 0, 2, 0; Chmelik 14, 4, 4; David Waters 8, 9, 2; Michael Waters 0, 2, 2; and Schwartz 2, 3, 2.
Last game before Christmas for the Patriot boys was Grangeville on Tuesday, preceded by the JV girls and followed by the varsity girls.
