teams each win
With games at Grangeville for the girls, and Highland for the boys, Summit ball teams each raised their season records by one win in action closing out the 2011 part of the season.
At Grangeville, Summitís record increased to 8 and 3 as they won their first game ever with the Bulldog girls, eking out a tense 27 to 25 victory on a poor-shooting Monday night.
Summit connected on only 24% of their shots, while the Bulldog girls were less successful with only Megan Sullivanís three treys in the second half keeping them in the game.
Leading the scoring effort for Summit, Savanah Prigge netted 16 points on 5 of 12 shooting and added 18 rebounds, four blocks, a steal and an assist for her part in the victory. Brooke Schumacher added 6 points, 4 boards, 3 steals and 2 assists. Kayla Schumacher could only connect on 1 of her field goal attempts but added 9 boards and a steal for her part in the victory. Nicole Freiís 2 for 2 at the charity stripe plus her 5 boards and a steal also contributed to the win. Point guard Nicole Wemhoff scored 1 of 2 from the line, but added 5 boards and 3 assists from her backcourt position. Two critical steals in the last minute of play, one each by Wemhoff and Prigge proved crucial in the contest.
On the Bulldog side, Sullivanís 15 points topped the Grangeville scorers with Chantel Keyís 7, Taylor Canadayís 2 and Addie Lutzís 1 being the only successful Bulldog scorers.
Score by quarters during the game: 5-4, 14-9, 18-19 and 27-25.
In the two-quarter prelim, Summit fell behind early 8-0 but roared back in the second quarter to take the game 17-12, and raise their season record to 6 and 3. Scoring for the Patriots was Megan Rehder with 8, Rachael Frei with 3, Sarah Chmelik with 4 and Rachel Uhlenkott with 2.
Action in the New Year for the Patriot girls includes an away league game at Genesee Tuesday of this week and another league game against Kendrick Friday at Prairie High School.
On the boysí side, Summit traveled to Highland for only their third game of the new season, winning easily with quarter scores of 16-11, 36-19, 54-24 and 56-28, playing the fourth quarter under mercy rule regulations because of the 30-point lead at the end of the third quarter.
