Summit Academyís Lady Patriots split a pair of close games last week, winning 40-35 at Nezperce Tuesday, Nov. 29 and then losing 41-43 against Clearwater Valley at Grangeville Elementary/Middle School Thursday, Dec. 1.
The game at Nezperce was never more than 2 points apart until the final minute of the game. Summit led 9-8 after one quarter. The score was tied at 18 at the half and Summit led 26-24 at the end of the third quarter.
In the final minute Brooke Schumacher inbounded to Savanah Prigge who fed the ball back to her for a drive to the hoop for a lay-up. She was fouled in the process and converted the 3-point play to turn a 36-35 lead into a 39-35 lead. Nezperce missed a shot on their end and Prigge made one of two free throws to close out the scoring.
The game was their White Pine League Division 2 opener and gave them a 1-0 league and 4-2 overall record.
Scoring for Summit were Nicole Frei, 5; Kayla Schumacher 4, Nicole Wemhoff 2, Brooke Schumacher 11 (7 in the crucial fourth quarter including 3 of 3 from the field and 1 for 1 at the line.) and Prigge 18. Prigge also connected on all three of her fourth quarter field goal attempts and was 1 for 2 at the line in the quarter.

In the 2-quarter JV game Summit lost to the Indians by a score of 12-23.
Summit should have won the game against C.V. They trailed 14-16 at the end of the first quarter but outscored the Rams 14-0 in the second quarter to take a 28-16 halftime lead. C.V. cut the lead to 34-30 by the end of the third quarter.
In the final minute of play C.V. outscored the Patriots 0-5 to pull out the win. Jade Gutzman connected on an NBA length 3, her only 3-pointer of the game, to tie the game. Then a Summit turnover led to a 2-pointer by Tanasha Webb that gave them the win.
That final score was the first time C.V. had led since early in the second quarter.
Summitís poor free throw shooting of 7 for 18 doomed the Patriots. C.V. picked up 26 fouls as they tried to rally but Summit couldnít make them pay at the line. The Patriots were 5 for 11 at the line in the second half.
Scoring, rebounding, assists and steals, in that order, for the Patriots: Nicole Frei 1, 1, 2, 0; Sarah Chmelik 2, 0, 1, 2; Kayla Schumacher 10, 6, 1, 1; Wemhoff 2, 3, 4, 2; Brooke Schumacher 3, 6, 1, 1; Prigge 23, 12, 2 and 4 blocks.
Gutzman led all C.V. scorers with 17, all but 4 coming in the second half and 7 netted during the fourth quarter. Anesha Reuben added 8 to their cause before fouling out late in the fourth and 7 was added by Webb, including her two field goals in the fourth.
The loss leaves Summit with a 4-3 record and 1-1 in White Pine action. This week they played at Potlatch on Tuesday and host Deary Thursday at Prairie High School.
In the 2-quarter prelim, Summit was edged by C.V. 24-27 in another tense and tenacious contest.
