5/5:

Girls Lacrosse: The Summit girls lacrosse team finished their season on Arts Day against a very talented Ravenscroft squad. Summit students were treated to an afternoon of musical performances to celebrate Arts Day, and lacrosse fans were treated to a game played at the highest level. Despite the 10-5 loss, the Eagles rose to the challenge of playing an undefeated team. Lynne got the Eagles going with a goal in the first minute of play. Despite a number of opportunities, the Eagles found themselves down 2-1 following a Ravens goal ten minutes into the first half. Two minutes later, Abigail answered by converting an 8M shot to tie the game. The two teams played scoreless lacrosse for nearly seven minutes when the Ravens were able to convert two quick goals. The Eagles still felt good down just 4-2 until the Ravens scored with 45 seconds remaining for a 5-2 halftime lead. The story of the game had to be the play of the Eagles' defense. Kaelin, Molly, Cally, Millie, Abby in the goal, and midfielders Bess, Abigail, Isabella, and E. Marsh, played tremendous one-on-one defense. As a team, the Eagles only allowed the Ravens to convert one 8M shot all game. The Eagles continued to battle in the second half. However, great teams know how to answer. Each time Summit scored the Ravens responded by scoring nearly a minute later. Abigail, Allie, and Kaelin all scored in the second half. A 10-5 loss rarely should feel good, except when two teams play high quality lacrosse. Final score 10-5 loss. Leading scorer Abigail (2 goals). Final record 8-9-1.

5/4:

VB Lacrosse: The Summit Varsity had a good 8-5 victory over Canterbury School in the tournament final. Canterbury came out ready to play. They scored the first goal of the game. Edwin helped Summit to keep pace by scoring the first 2 Summit goals, which brought the score to an even 2-2 at the end of the first period. Ethan scored Summit’s only goal in the second period, but Canterbury countered with 2 more goals and led 4-3 at halftime. Summit got off a number of good shots, but the Canterbury goalie made several nice saves. In the second half Max, Wise, and Jonah ramped up their defensive pressure, which caused multiple turnovers. Combined with Bo’s 4 saves and a terrific defensive midfield stand, the Eagles limited Canterbury to 1 goal in the entire second half. On the offensive end, Ethan took advantage of some one-on-one match-ups, dodged from the X, and finished with some precise shots. Ethan had 4 goals and 2 assists in the game. Ian and Hugh scored the other two Summit goals in the second half. The Eagles will play their final game of the season at home against Ravenscroft.

Baseball: The Summit Baseball team played its final game of the 2017 season riding a 12 game winning streak (last loss 3/21/17) and gave the crowd an exciting game to watch despite coming up a run short in a 9-8 loss to N. Davie. Pitching for the Eagles were Bobby S., Davis H., and William P.; William P., and Wes D. hit dingers for the Eagles. Scoring and providing offense for the Eagles were Davis H., Sam P., Bradley B., Bobby S., Wes D., Wadajo O., William P. (2), Luke P., and Walker H. The Eagles finish the season with an impressive .329 team batting average, 176 runs scored (over 9 runs a game), allowed only 115 runs, and wrap up the 2017 season with a 15-3 record. Thank you to our parents, faculty, staff, and fans for supporting us and cheering us on this season and we look forward to an exciting 2018 campaign.

Girls Soccer: Summit did not have an answer for SW Guilford's speed in the 4-0 loss. Hannah D and Sophia I each had fantastic final games creating multiple scoring opportunities for Summit. When defender Sophie C went down with shin splints late in the first half, SW Guilford quickly took advantage of her absence scoring 3 fast break goals in 10 minutes. Midway through the second half, midfielders Emma Stuart, Maddie S, and Lauren S really came alive offensively and we were able to apply pressure for the remainder of the game but were unable to get it past the keeper.

Softball: Summit erupted for 12 runs on the rain-soaked turf in Clemmons Thursday night, but fell short in their season finale to the hard-hitting Wildcats from North Davie 22-12. The Eagles scored at least two runs in every inning and kept the pressure on North Davie with their aggressive base running, but Summit could not keep pace as the Wildcats rattled the outfield fence all night. Highlights for Summit include Maddie's triple down the right field line that scored two, including Leila, who sped through Coach Fansler's stop sign and slid into home under the catcher's tag. Sarah stole second and came all the way around to score when an errant throw got past the center fielder. Lauren and Lily also contributed hits in clutch situations to help fuel the Eagle attack. Scoring for the Eagles were Reese, Sarah, Jessica, Charlotte, Lily, Lia, Lauren (2), Maddie (2) and Leila (2). The defensive play of the game was turned in by Quin, who made a great catch on the highest pop fly of the season. Lily also made a crucial play running down a pop up in front of the visitor's dugout. The Eagles' final record was 4-6. Congratulations to the girls on a fantastic season. Can't wait to see what we can do next year!

5/3:

JV Golf: This season has been wonderful. Today's weather was terrific, the course was in good shape, and our team was on fire. The JV Golf Team had a cumulative 24 pars and 3 birdies while completing the perfect season 11-0 with a victory at Pudding Ridge Golf Course against North Davie Middle School 161-200. This is our lowest team score of the season and several players saved their best for last, scoring individual match lows. Scoring in the match were the following players for the Eagles: Fletcher 37, Anna and Owen both had 41s, and Merrick and Anders both had 42s. Birdies were recorded by Fletcher with 1 and Anders with 2. I enjoyed watching this group of golfers mature throughout the season. They respected themselves, their opponent, and the great game of golf. I know that they will all continue to play this great game, which is one for a lifetime. Thank you all for the memories. It was the perfect season for me. GO EAGLES!!!!

Girls Lacrosse: The Summit girls lacrosse team faced a tough challenge at home this afternoon against rival Forsyth Country Day School's JV. The two teams dug deep as many players went the distance in a fast paced 10-8 FCDS win. Summit jumped ahead early when Bess scored in the first 90 seconds. Forsyth responded with three goals in 2:30. The two teams traded goals over the next seven minutes and FCDS led 5-2. Summit finished the first half with a 3-1 run of their own as Abigail sandwiched a goal in between Bess and Winborne, each scoring their second goal of the half. The Forsyth goalie ran the clock out with the Furies ahead 6-5 at halftime. The Summit defense led by Kaelin, Molly and Millie, played admirably against a speedy and skilled FCDS attack. All three Forsyth midfielders were a threat to score forcing the Summit defense to do a lot more switching and double teaming than they are used to. Forsyth opened the second half just like the first with another quick three goal run. The 9-5 deficit loomed large as the clock clicked down toward the half way mark of the second half. Kaelin scored on a run from defense with 13 minutes remaining, only to have FCDS push the lead back to four with seven minutes left. Summit closed the gap with goals by Abigail and Winborne in the final minutes; however, FCDS won the final draw control and ran the clock out for the 10-8 win. Final score 10-8 loss. Leading scorers Abigail (2 goals, 1 assist) and Winborne (3 goals). Record 8-8-1.

VB Lacrosse: In the tournament semi-final vs Forsyth Country Day School the Summit Boys Varsity Lacrosse team had an 8-3 victory. Early in the first period Summit traded goals with FCDS. By the end of the period Summit scored 2 more goals. Summit continued to separate from FCDS as the defense prevented FCDS from scoring through the next two periods, which ended with an 8-1 score. Nathanael, Hugh, and Blake excelled at the faceoff X winning 13 of 15. Henry led the Eagle scoring with 6 total points, 2 goals and 4 assists. FCDS scored two goals in the fourth period, but the Eagles were able to secure the win and advance to the tournament final Thurday at 4:30.

5/2:

Boys Tennis: Boys Tennis only gave up one match for an 8-1 win against South Davie in their second encounter this season. Jackson and Michael both won their singles matches 8-0, while Winston, McLean and Christopher each only gave up one game. Frank and Grant teamed up for doubles along with the pair of Thomas and Garrett, both teams dominating their opponent 6-0. Today's victory continues the team's undefeated streak as they prepare for their final match against Cornerstone this Thursday.

VG Soccer: West Forsyth’s size during set plays proved to be the difference in Summit’s 3-1 loss. The Titans first goal came on a corner kick after the ball had bounced around the top of the box. Emma Stuart quickly added an equalizer with a great shot past the keeper. Mary Claire and Sophie C were an amazing defensive duo that helped Summit take a 1-1 tie into halftime. The second half was extremely back and forth with both teams creating a lot of scoring opportunities, but West capitalized on another set play to take a 2-1 lead. The Titans added the third goal with 2 minutes remaining by capitalizing on Summit having numbers forward trying to score an equalizer. Sophia I managed to get the player of the game award in her final Summit home game by making 2 goal line saves while also making a positive impact on the attacking side of the field.

Softball: The Eagles turned in their best defensive effort of the season Tuesday, but dropped a hard-fought battle to Calvary, 6-2. Lightning Leila was in top form as she tossed her ninth complete game of the season, fanning nine and walking only one. The Eagle defense turned in several sparkling plays behind her; Lauren cut down a runner trying to steal third, Lia gunned a runner down at home, Maddie turned an unassisted double play, and Mary Kate snared a line drive with the bases loaded to save at least two runs. The Cougars finally broke through in the fifth inning with four runs to take the lead, but Summit continued to fight. The Eagles put six runners on base over the last three innings, but, despite making solid contact, managed just one run against Calvary's tall, fire-balling lefty. Leila scored twice, had two hits and stole four bases to lead Summit's attack. Lia added a season high three hits while Lauren accounted for the team's lone RBI. The Lady Eagles will take the field for the final time this season on Thursday at Southwest against North Davie. A tip of the hat to these clever, resilient young ladies for not only reviving the Summit Softball program, but raising their level of play during the season to compete against teams with far more experience. In the immortal words of Timmy Lupus, "Just wait 'til next year!"

Baseball: The Summit Baseball team hosted the Tigers from South Davie on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon for baseball. The Tigers wasted no time offensively plating five runs in the first inning followed by an additional six runs in the second inning to take an eleven run lead - yes, eleven. The Tigers appeared to be on their way to a run-ruled victory as Summit's offense managed a mere two baserunners through the first two innings. Despite an unfavorable start to the game, the Eagles never panicked and by the third inning their patience began to pay off. The shift in momentum that Summit was looking for seemingly arrived via an uncharacteristic error by the Tigers that put an Eagle runner on. Summit's batters seized on the opportunity with a tree clearing two run dinger by William P., followed by a massive bases loaded grand slam by Bobby S. With the score now 11-6 the Eagles continued to stay focused and positive defensively and did not allow any Tiger runs in for the balance of the game. In the bottom of the fifth inning Bobby S. drove in the tying run with a towering three run dinger that really got the home crowd going. Facing two outs with two runners on Davis H. sent a three run blast over the trees that was followed by a thunderous two run shot by Sam P. to finish out an exciting ten run rally by the Eagles. With the thrilling 16-11 victory the Eagles have now captured their eighth series sweep of the season and improve to a 15-2 record. Pitching for the Eagles in the winning effort were: Sam P., Bradley B., Garret R., Bobby S., Walker H., and Davis H. William P., Davis H., Sam P., and Bobby S. (2) all hit dingers for the Eagles. Scoring and providing offense for the Eagles were Wadajo O., Garrett R., William P. (2) Sam P. (2), Lucas M. (2), Bobby S. (2), Davis H. (3), and Luke P. (3)

5/1:

Girls Lacrosse; A storm was brewing as the Summit girls lacrosse team took the field against W-S Lacrosse Monday afternoon. Rain would shorten the game only after the Eagles built a 4-2 lead just after halftime. Summit opened the scoring five minutes into the game as E. Marsh took a pass from Lynn while cutting to the goal and buried in the back of the net. Winborne would score two more goals for the Eagles before halftime. Annie made several nice saves and seemed on her way to a shut-out in the first half. W-S ruined the thought with two goals in the final minute of the half coming like a bolt of lightning. Summit was awarded a free possession on the opening draw of the second half. Like a lightning strike of their own, Bess carried the ball to goal line extended, turned back, and found Lynn open in front for a quick catch and shoot goal in under a minute of play. Before much else could happen a real lightning strike was detected and the game ended with the Eagles ahead 4-2. Final score 4-2. Leading scorers Lynn (1 goal, 1 assist) & Winborne (2 goals). Record 8-7-1.
