9/22:

Girls Tennis: What an exciting day on the courts! On a hot fall afternoon, the Lady Eagles were up 3-2 in singles with victories by Lauren, Isabella, and Lindsey with McKinley still on the court. Up 7-6, McKinley's opponent came up big to tie the match at 7-7. Displaying perseverance and quality shot-making, McKinley won the last two games to win the match and put the team up 4-2. The lead appeared to be in jeopardy as Lauren/Lindsey fell behind 5-1 in their doubles match while Louise/Sydney's opponents rallied to tie their match at 6-6. McKinley and Lia consistently battled to take a 5-4 lead. All the doubles team showed consistent effort and competitive fire to the end. Lauren/Lindsey found their groove to win 7 straight games for and an 8-5 win. McKinley/Lia impressively closed out 3 of the last 4 games to win 8-5 and Louise/Sydney prevailed 8-6 by winning the last two games with impressive shot making. Congratulations to the Lady Eagles on their effort and quality play!

JVB Soccer: A heartbreaker Friday afternoon for the Summit Eagles. The boys played exceptional soccer today, scoring early, with a goal by Oliver at the 6-minute mark. Teddy and Ryan both played masterfully in goal, holding S. Davie to 2 goals, both in the second half and in a matter of minutes. Kudos to Will who played phenomenally well at both center back and midfield. Additionally, our strikers Jack P., Max, Franco, Stanton, and Oliver had countless shots on goal, continuing our efforts from Thursday. None of this would have been possible without the stalwart efforts of Bo, Noah, and Bouldin at midfield. The boys' improvement is awesome to watch, let's hope they can continue this on Monday against Canterbury.

JV Field Hockey: Thanks to all the fans that come out to support the team Friday. We appreciate your cheers of encouragement. In the hot afternoon sun the Eagles fought a tough battle against Charlotte Latin. I know the team is disappointed we didn't bring home the win but everyone sure gave it their all. Our defense was challenged the first half of the game and once again Maggie B. made some tremendous saves. We held them to a 0-0 tie but fell 0-2 in the end. The mid field kept the pressure on Latin and found opportunities to push the ball to our forwards in the second half and we gave it a good shot but could not put the ball in the Latin goal. Remarkable improvement is visible and it is clear that our team is really learning to trust each other, we will carry this on and continue to build as a team.

V Field Hockey: Summit hosted the Hawks of Charlotte Latin on a warm fall Friday afternoon and came away with the 1-0 win. It wasn't easy though. Latin battled long and hard and had good chances to score late in the first half but the bend-but-don't-break Summit defense withstood the challenge. Summit received stellar play in midfield from Amelia, Cally, Iris and Rylee throughout and finally broke through with a thunderous goal from Rylee that no doubt left a dent in the back of the goal. MC Colo just missed a goal a few minutes later as the Eagles kept the pressure on. Summit has a quick turnaround as they head to West Forsyth on Saturday for a jamboree.

VB Soccer: Liam recorded his second shutout of the season with a 3-0 win over Canterbury. It turned out to be a battle of defenses as both teams struggled to get good looks on goal. Defenders John H and Mason had brilliant games leading the back and frustrating the Canterbury attack. Walt, whose great left foot has been on fire of late, had 2 great goals and Josh added a third goal by intercepting a bad clearance and dribbling past the last defender and keeper. Player of game goes out to 2 players: Walt for his excellent offense and Mason for his leadership and aggressiveness in defense.

V Volleyball: The Lady Eagles played their best match at home versus a powerful and well-executed South Davie team. We didn't come out as the winners, but we did several things well including executing more three-contact hits and staying relaxed. Milla showed poise and consistency and she and Donelle were both digging and being aggressive at the net. All players worked together to protect each other in serve receive and defensive coverage. Elle made some important digs against the powerful hitters we faced and we took the first game 25-20. In the second game, Sam and Lila took over as our outside hitters and with their net play along with Julia's ever increasing presence as a dominant middle blocker, we matched S. Davie point for point. But, after long rallies and fights for side out, we missed four consecutive serves. It was too much for us to recover from, and we dropped that game 16-25. In the third game, Hunter and Jessica continued to pick up more tips and hard shots on defense and set up more than ever for our hitters, but some inconsistency in our serve receive resulted in too many lost points before the game was up 8-15. Our shots are beginning to drop in the court and we look forward to facing rival Forsyth Country Day on Tuesday!

9/21:

Football: The Summit Eagles played great Thursday afternoon vs Starmount Middle School with a 16-0 victory. We had a complete team today shutting out Starmount on defense and scoring in all phases of the game: offense, defense, and special teams. The Eagles scored their fist touchdown from a completion from Davis to Hunter as time expired in the first half. The two point conversion failed and the Eagles led 6-0. The Eagles defense was fundamentally sound causing Starmount to punt several times in the game, two of them resulting in safeties and 4 points for the Eagles. The defense scored on a fumble recovery by Thomas H from his defensive tackle position. The two point conversion failed. We had big completions on offense, gang tackling on defense and smart plays on special teams. The coaches have seen this group continue to grow and develop their skills on the field. Our next challenge will be Christ School next Wednesday at Summit School with a 4:30 start time. Come out and watch this team continue to soar. GO EAGLES!!!

V Volleyball: After a few focused practices, the Varsity Eagles put into practice more communication, a new defensive coverage scheme, and executed improved serve receive. The first game was close due to Julia and Elle's tough serves and Hunter's leadership, but we dropped the game 21-25. The team doubled down in the second game as Jessica picked up numerous digs and Julia dominated at the net and we won 25-21. Emotions were high in the third game. We built a small lead, but the pressure became too great and after some missed passes and confusion in the front row, we lost 15-8. The team is hungry for a win and are ready for tomorrow's match to finish what we started today.

JVB Soccer: Despite the 5-0 loss to Calvary, the Eagles played exceptionally well Thursday. Both keepers, Teddy and Ryan, did a fine job, saving a multitude of shots. Our midfielders and forwards played their best soccer of the season, using space and passing like pros, maintaining possession of the ball more than in any game this season while also getting off more shots than all the previous games combined. Will played with poise today at both center back and midfield, helping to stop several shots while doing an exceptional job of moving the ball. Up front, there was more great play from Max, Franco, and Jack P., with great assistance from Oliver, Bo, and Noah. And Bobby showed wonderful growth, playing with confidence at left back, making several nice saves in the second half. All the pieces of the puzzle are there, let's hope we can put them in place against South Davie tomorrow at home.

JV Volleyball: Despite playing some of their best volleyball to date the JV Eagles were no match for an older more experienced Wolverine team. Summit kept it close in the first set losing 20-25 but managed some great passes and more consistent serves. In the second set their older girls got the better of us and we could not recover from several tough serves losing 6-25. We will take the positives and look towards Monday's game against Canterbury.

9/18:

VB Soccer: Varsity soccer stepped up their game in a 4-1 win over Gospel Light. Early goals by Christopher and Frank gave Summit an early lead which they took into the half. Brothers Walt and Owen each scored in the second half. Walt’s goal was a near perfect shot in the upper left corner off of a direct kick from 25 yards away. Hollis enjoyed a great half as center back, and an exceptional second half as a midfielder. Liam had another great outing as keeper nearly missing a clean sheet. John S and Mason P had their best performances of the season at defense. Great job Eagles!

Girls Tennis: The Lady Eagles Tennis Team ran into a very good Wesleyan squad playing quality tennis Monday afternoon. After falling behind 5-1 in singles, the girls battled triumphantly in the doubles matches. Lauren won her singles match and the doubles teams of Lauren/Lindsey, Hayden/Kazia, and Isabella/Sydney completed a sweep in the doubles matches to make the final score 5-4. The team displayed perseverance and tenacity throughout the match by competing with 100% effort during the day.

V Volleyball: Wesleyan's jump serves were too intimidating for the Lady Eagles, who lost the physical and mental match Monday. In straight sets, Summit struggled to pass, serve and communicate resulting in a 6-25; 12-25 defeat. Donelle enjoyed a bright spot successfully overhand serving for her first time in a match. Emily came in as Libero several times as well in various positions to mix up the serve receive and contributed toward some side outs. The girls meet Calvary on their campus later this week.

V Field Hockey: Summit School defeated Northwest Guilford 1-0 in an amazing game Monday afternoon. The Eagles winning goal was scored by Amelia in the first half off a beautiful insert from Callie to Mariella finished by Amelia. MC Colo showed the development of her skills with Incredible plays on the field and multiple shots on goal. Iris fought the entire game as right midfielder dealing with some tough competition but still was able to bring it up the strong side of our field. Frannie played one of the best games of her defensive career holding down the fort the entire first half of the game. It was beautiful to watch and Annie had another shutout. Summit came out victorious and now look to Charlotte Latin on Friday at 5pm.

JV Field Hockey: The girls played a great game Monday afternoon against a formidable opponent in North Cross School from Ronaoke, Va. Our midfield did a great job supporting our offensive line forcing the ball into the North Cross 25, we just had a tough time converting these opportunities into goals. Emelia M. used her strong dribbling skills in mid field to break up the North Cross push, relentlessly following her ball and forcing forward progress. Sienna A. and Hope A. followed her lead and never quit on their carries up the field. Maggie B. was unflappable in goal making five saves and preserving our 0-0 tie. Thanks to all the parents that came out to cheer us on, this was an exciting game to watch.
