Last week’s action for the Summit Patriot girls resulted in two wins and a loss, with the Patriot league record gaining one and losing one, for a current league record of 7 and 2 and a 12 and 4 record overall.

Summit boys lose twice
The Summit Patriots played two very competitive first halves this past week, but weakened after the half to drop two more White Pine League games, Thursday to CV in the second game of a girl-boy doubleheader, then experienced much the same results away at Deary on Saturday afternoon.
Taking the floor at Nezperce Thursday after the Summit girls defeated Timberline, the boys fell back 7-12 at the quarter break, a bit more to 19-30 at the half, more still to 30-49 after 3 quarters, then finally closed at 41-64 against the CV Rams, last year’s Division 1 state champions.
Stormy Wyman with 20 and Jake Squires with 16 did most of the damage to the Summit cause, while scoring and rebounding stats for Summit showed the following: Dan Wemhoff 3 and 2, Derek Nuxoll 7 and 10, Josh Lustig 0 and 3, Shane Stubbers 4 and 2, David Waters 8 and 7, Michael Waters 6 and 4, Austin Chmelik 5 and 2 and Matthew Schwartz 8 and 0. Chmelik led the assist effort with 7, Nuxoll, Michael Waters and Stubbers added 2 each, and Wemhoff, Lustig, David Waters and Schwartz each added one Chmelik and Nuxoll each had a block and two steals to lead that department, while Schwartz added 2 steals and one each was credited to Wemhoff, David Waters and Michael Waters. The Patriots shot 34% from the field including a 3 by Wemhoff and two by Schwartz. Foul shooting was down for the Patriots durng the game, with only 2 of 7 falling in that category.
Saturday at Deary was a bit more of the same, as Summit stayed with the taller Mustangs during the first half, ahead 15 to 14 at the quarter mark then dropping back to 21-25 at the half. The third quarter proved to be a disaster however as the host team pulled away with an 18 to 5 outburst, then continued to pour it on in the final quarter to end up on top 65 to 42.
Nine Mustangs made the scoring column with 6’9” Nathan Rathbun doing the most damage with 19, assisted by 11 from Ryan Bailey. Scoring for the Patriots was Wemhoff with 6 points on two treys in three attempts, Nuxoll with 7 points including one trey, Lustig with 2, Stubbers with 3, Chmelik with 12 including one three, David Waters with 3 from one successful 3 converted, Michael Waters 3 and Schwartz 6.
Shooting was off for the Patriots with only 14 of 49 shots finding paydirt for the evening. Rebound and assist stats for the Patriots: Wemhoff 1 and 1, Nuxoll 4 and 0 with 2 steals and a block, Stubbers 3 boards, Lustig 2 and 1, Chmelik 7 and 2 with one steal and a block, David Waters 3 rebounds, plying limited time because of an injury, Michael Waters 2 rebounds and Schwartz 2 and 1 with 2 steals.
The two losses dropped the Summit record to 2 and 5 overall and 0 and 4 in league.
