Summit girls win pair
The Summit Patriot girls raised their season record to 10-3 and their White Pine League record to 6-1 as they recorded wins at Genesee and at home against Kendrick last week.
Quarter scores at Genesee were 12-12, 22-18, 34-25 and 42-36. Some of the results due to the long Christmas Break layoff as both teams struggled a bit from the field. Summit concluding with 15 of 41 from the field and 12 of 23 from the charity stripe. Savanah Prigge led all scorers with 18 points and added 6 boards for the evening. Nicole Fri neting 8 points and 7 boards. Kayla Schumacher had 5 points and 4 boards, Brooke Schumacher 6 points and 5 boards and point guard Nicole Wemhoff added a basket and a free for for 3 points and also came up with 5 rebounds. Sub Rachael Frei got into the action with 2 points and 3 boards while Sarah Chmelik picked up 1 rebound during her time on the floor.
Brooke Schumacher led the assist effort with 6 with Prigge adding 3, Wemhoff, Kayla Schumacher and Nicole Frei 2 each. Prigge was credited with 3 steals and 2 blocks while Nicole Frei had 3 steals and Wemhoff added 2.
In the 2-quarter prelim, Summit jumped out to an early lead and behind a stifling defense took down the Bulldog JV 28 to 2 with Sarah Chmelik and Megan Seubert each scoring 8 and Rachel Uhlenkott and Megan Rehder adding 6 each. Chmelik and Seubert each collected 6 boards to lead in that department.
Friday at PHS, Summit’s ladies added to their season win record with a convincing 52-34 win over the Kendrick Tigers with Prigge having her best game of the year, pulling down 18 boards and scoring 27 points. Added to her evening’s work was 3 steals and 1 blocked shot.
Other Patriot scoring and rebounding in that order: Nicole Frei 6, 1; Kayla Schumacher 2, 7; Wemhoff 2, 6; Brooke Schumacher 7, 3; and subs Rachael Frei 2, 2; Sarah Chmelik 4, 5, and Megan Rehder 2, 1. Wemhoff added 3 assists while Kayla Schumacher had 2 and Brooke Schumacher had 3. Chmelik added 3 steals, Rachael Frei 1, Brooke and Kayla 3 and 2 respectively and Wemhoff 2.
Quarter scores were 16-8, 24-17, 38-22 and 52-34.
The 2-quarter prelim added another win to the Summit record which is now 8-3 for the season. They defeated Kendrick 27-11.
Scoring and rebounding was as follows: Chmelik 11 and 3 with 4 steals, Rehder, 8, 6 with 2 steals; Uhlenkott 5, 1 and 1 steals; Seubert 2, 6 and Rachael Frei 1 point in 1 quarter. Kayla Duclos played well and added 1 rebound during her quarter on the floor.
Three games this week will test the Summit position in the leagues as Troy plays here Tuesday at PHS. Thursday they play Timberline at Nezperce with a 4:30 JV start, 6 p.m. varsity followed by the boys playing C.V. Then the Summit girls host top-ranked Lapwai at PHS on Friday.

Summit boys lose twice
Hit by early turnovers brought on by an intense Genesee Bulldog press, and the torrid shooting of Sam Druffel who hit 3 of 4 trey attempts, banging home 15 points in the first two quarters alone, Summit got an unpleasant taste of what life is like playing the number one ranked 1A-Division I team in the state this past Thursday playing at the PHS gym.
The first quarter score settled the issue for the evening, Genesee 25-Summit 4, though the remainder of the game proved much more competitive with Summit scoring 10 to Genesee’s 13 in the second quarter, 21 to the Bulldogs’ 17 in the third and 8 to the visitor’s 16 in the final stanza for a final score of 43-71.
Druffel finished with 24 points for the evening as Summit clamped down a little better in the third with subs playing a lot of the fourth quarter for both teams. All in all, the Bulldogs canned 8 threes on the evening with Tilleman adding 2, Hermann 1, Knecht 1 and Duffel 1 more in the third.
Scoring, boards, assists and steals for the Patriots are as follows: Dan Wemhoff 0, 1, 0, 0; Derek Nuxoll 8, 9, 6, 0; Josh Lustig 2, 1, 1, 0; Shane Stubbers 8, 7, 2, 1; David Waters 2, 1, 1, 0; Michael Waters 9, 1, 1, 1 with 1 block; Austin Chmelik 4, 6, 2, 0; Matthew Schwartz 10, 1, 1, 1. Nathan Beckman and Justin Dempsey also both saw action in the game.
Saturday at Kendrick, Summit played Kendrick to a virtual standstill in the first half, missing a layup in the final seconds, then seeing Kendrick drop in a 2-pointer at the buzzer for their 28-26 halftime lead. The “wheels fell off” during the second half however as the Tigers outscored Summit 17-6 in a disastrous third quarter, then continued to add to their lead with a 21-12 margin in the fourth for a final 66-44 win for Kendrick.
Hardin with 17, Boyle with 11, Scott with 10 and Olson with 9 provided the bulk of the Kendrick scoring, while Summit scorers and rebounders were as follows: Wemhoff 0, 2 with 1 assist; Nuxoll 2, 3 with 4 assists before fouling out in the fourth; Stubbers 7, 6; Dempsey 0, 23; Chmelik 13, 6; David Waters, 11, 10; Michael Waters 7, 2 with 1 assists; Schwartz 2, 2 with 3 assists and Beckman 2, 0.
Turnovers played a significant role in both defeats as Summit committed 22 against the Genesee press and another 22 in the game with Kendrick.
The two losses leave the Patriots with a 2-3 record and 0-2 in league with league games against C.V. at Nezperce Thursday and Saturday at Deary. The following week both the girls and boys will be at Orofino for non-league contests there.
