Wrestling: Coach Daggett and Coach Rimron were super proud of the guys Saturday. An early start to the day ended up with lots of medals for our Eagle wrestlers! We took 7 wrestlers to the Independent MS "championships" and had 3 first places, and a 4th place. Charlie pinned his way through the tournament handily winning his weight class, Jeffery ground out three decisions to win his weight class and William pinned one opponent and major decisioned his other opponent in the finals to win his weight class. Hayden finished 4th losing a tough 3rd place match. JP and Evan had some tough matches but couldn't get into the win column and finished 3rd in their three person weigh classes. Carter won his first match but dropped his next match to the eventual champion and then injury defaulted in his last match. Thank you to everyone who made the trip and provided the snacks and drinks!
9th Boys BB: Summit hosted a talented Piedmont Classical squad in the final game of the season for the Eagles. Summit went into the contest hoping to avenge a 16 pt loss to Piedmont earlier in the season. The Eagles started fast and led 18-5 early behind 12 points from Kevin. However, Piedmont came back with a fury outscoring Summit 23-11 behind many second-chance opportunities and some timely 3's. Summit led 29-28 at the break. The third quarter was a see-saw battle with many lead changes as Jack, Edwin and Kevin kept up the scoring pace. However, Piedmont was relentless in their defensive pressure and attack on the glass and led 49-48 heading into the final frame thanks to a banked 3 pt shot at the buzzer. The final quarter saw Piedmont build a slim lead with Summit closing the gap. The process repeated itself time and again until finally Piedmont was at the line with 12 seconds to go leading by 3. They missed the attempt but Summit wasn't able to secure the rebound and had to foul again giving Piedmont the opportunity to put the game away which they did. The Eagles have much to be proud of finishing the season 17-7. Kevin led the Eagles with 29 points and 11 boards. Edwin added 18 points, 3 steals and 2 assists. Blake chipped in 5 points, 6 boards, and 3 assists. Rounding out the scoring were Jonah and James with 4 each, Bolton 2 and Davis 1.
The Eagles went on their shortest road trip of the season down Reynolda Road to RJ Reynolds looking for a season sweep of the Demons. The first game was a close 3 pt win by the Eagles and the first half of today's game resembled the first. Both teams came out firing as Blake nailed two 3 pt field goals and Kevin chipped in 7 points to knot the score at 14 all. Reynolds gained a slight 2 pt advantage in the second quarter as they pounded the offensive glass and splashed the nets for three 3's to lead 29-27 at the break. Summit continued their trend of playing strong in the second half as 5 different players scored in quarter 3 with James hitting a big 3 and Kevin and Edwin working together for 8 big points and a highlight that was Sportscenter worthy. James and Kevin continued to spark the team in the final frame as Summit pulled away for a 58-49 win. Kevin led Summit with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Blake added 11 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists.

After halftime, Summit extended the lead behind Henderson, Logan, and Thomas.

VG BB: The Summit varsity girls team traveled down Reynolda Road to play RJR JV. The game came down to few close calls but as we have preached all season we have to play every possession to the bitter end. One deep shot that banked in turned out to be the difference. We had our chances but it didn't happen. Leading scorer was Kaelin with 7 and Winborne with six.
JVB Green & White BB: In a celebration of JV Basketball, Green met White in front of a packed house Wednesday night in the Athletic Center. From the tip, both teams played with great effort and passion and combined to knock down a season high eight 3 pointers. Bradley, Austin and Will connected from behind the arc for White, while Thomas, Robert "Klutch", Ian and Hank went deep for Green. Garret and Frank led their respective teams in rebounding and Tim played strong in the middle, scoring on a nice drive to the basket. In the fourth quarter, Eli became the first known Summit player to participate in a basketball game with a broken collar bone. (It should be noted that playing with one arm in a sling did not prevent Eli from immediately hoisting a 3.) White had the last possession of the game and held for the final shot, but Ben's 3 at the buzzer fell just short. Robert "Klutch" had another big night with 16 points and Landon chipped in with a season high 12. Perhaps the highlight of the night was a great hustle play turned in by Will, who ran Ford down from behind to strip him of the ball. Also scoring for the Eagles tonight were Lucas with 9, Thomas 7, Ian 5, Garrett 4, Will 3, Austin 3, Bradley 3, Ford 3, Frank 3, Hank 3, Grayson 2, Noah 2, Tim 2, Shiff 2, and Wes 1.Both teams are to be commended for their hard work, positive attitude, and team first mentality. Thanks for a great season.

Summit showed their grit on their way to a 20-15 victory! Summit shifted some players to new positions and needed the first quarter to adjust. The teams were tied 4-4. Things started to click in the second, as the teams traded the lead early. The Eagles asserted themselves at both ends of the court to build a four point lead (12-8) on Leila's jump shot just before the halftime buzzer. Mary Kate's defense on the top of the 2-3 zone gave the St. Leo's guards fits. Meanwhile, Abby, Mary Price, and Mariella kept St. Leo's center in check. In the second half, the Eagles made the most of their trips to the free throw line going 4 for 9, none bigger than Maddie's two in the fourth quarter. The entire team kept their composure and executed on the court as St. Leo's battled to the final buzzer. Congratulations on a super finish to the season! Final score 20-15.
