Wrestling: Our Summit Eagle wrestlers got off to a great start this season with a strong performance at the Ravenscroft MS wrestling tournament. I was very proud of the boys for their tenacity and grit. Everyone, including our first year wrestlers, won at least one match and we had two wrestlers, Stanton and Jeffrey go undefeated for the day. There were lots of memorable matches including Aidan’s two battles with the wrestler from NC Leadership Academy. They wrestled twice with each match going the distance and decided by one point. Jeffrey had a great come from behind win against his Ravenscroft opponent, Stanton dominated all three of his opponents, and Bobby fought hard to get a win in the team’s very last match of the day. William and Colin had two impressive wins and Noah, Shaheim, Gus and Isaac all notched strong wins. Again, I was very proud of our first year wrestlers who got better with every match. I was also very impressed with our experienced wrestlers whose leadership, on and off the mat, kept the young guys motivated and focused. Overall I could not be happier with the team’s performance!
9th BB: Summit played the second of back-to-back nights which also doubled as their home opener Friday vs Calvary. The Eagles methodically built a 25-10 halftime lead behind contributions from six different players. But the Cougars weren't done mounting a comeback that trimmed the Summit lead to four by the end of the third. The fourth quarter was filled with drama as Calvary eventually tied the game. However, Ben and Davis made some clutch free throws and the Eagles defense got a key stop with seconds remaining to pull out a 44-40 win. Congrats to the team on sticking together through adversity. Davis and Henderson led Summit in scoring with 13 and 10. Thomas added 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks while Hunter added 4 rebounds and 2 steals. Summit hosts High Point Home Monday at 6:45pm.
9th BB: Summit opened their season with a tough road test at Reagan Thursday night. It was a battle of wills and Summit prevailed early jumping to a 10-3 lead. After a Reagan timeout, the Raiders put together several good possessions and took an 11-10 lead. Summit had plenty of good shots in the first half but only a few found the bottom of the net allowing Reagan to lead 27-19 at the half. The teams traded baskets for most of the third quarter but the Raiders bench proved to be deeper than the Eagles down the stretch. Thomas and Davis led Summit with 18 and 14 respectively and Summit found their way to the charity stripe 31 times. Lots of positives to build on. The Eagles host Calvary Day Friday at 5:30.
VB BB: Although the Varsity Boys Basketball team fell to Wesleyan in the Athletic Center Thursday night, the effort, passion and intensity demonstrated on the court by the boys made me proud to be their coach. In a game decided by momentum and scoring runs, the last one went to our opponent. The Eagles could have easily found the mountain too steep based on the Wesleyan's pressure defense and team speed running up and down the floor. We fell behind early by double digits. Lucas and Owen combined for 15 second quarter points to keep the Eagles within striking distance at the half. Wes and Luke hustled, rebounded and battled to help the team survive some early foul trouble. Robert and Grayson provided rebounding and steals off the bench to thwart Wesleyan's possessions. After falling behind by 13 points early in the fourth quarter, the Eagles mounted another comeback. Owen scored seven points in the fourth quarter while Wes and Lucas made huge baskets and Ford hit a big three point basket to bring the team within one. Unfortunately, Wesleyan made free throws after shots wouldn't fall for the Eagles to seal the win.
6th Girls BB: The 6th grade girls basketball team tipped off their season against nearby rival St. Leo’s. The Lions are a tough team to play, especially to open the season, as they defeated the Eagles 22-13. The Eagles discussed in pregame that game speed would be surprisingly fast; and like a rocket launching, St Leo’s was up 11-0 at the end of the first quarter. Summit responded by holding St Leo’s to a single free throw in the second quarter, and outscored the Lions 11-10 in the second half. In particular, during the second half, the Eagles forced a St Leo’s turnover under the basket, transitioned the ball for an easy basket, set up in their half court trap, and forced another turnover! Once everyone got a feel for the game they settled defended better and took more shots on offense. The play of Victoria, Ashley, Caroline, Eliza, and Sienna led the way. Final score 22-13, loss. Today’s scorers: Victoria (6), Caroline (5), and Lindsey (2). Record 0-1.
JVB Green: The JV Boys fell to a tall, athletic squad from Wesleyan Thursday night in the Eagles nest 44-10. Summit moved the ball well early on and got some good looks at the basket but couldn't get the ball to drop.The Eagles played aggressive defense and banged inside with the longer, taller Trojans, but Wesleyan's size and athleticism was too much for the Eagles to overcome. Evan and David did a great job on the boards, while Bouldin made several scrappy plays on defense. Scoring for the Eagles were James with 3, David, Micah, Jack S, with 2, and Bo with 1. The Eagles take the court again Monday night against Burlington Christian.
6th Boys BB: The 6th grade boys played a big, physical St Leo’s team and dropped their opener on the road 40-21. The Eagles lost the battle of the boards on both ends of the floor and gave the Lions openings with errant passing and several turnovers in the first quarter. St Leo’s went up 17-2, as they converted the Eagles’ miscues into baskets. The Lions’ size afforded them opportunities to get the ball inside, keep it high and shoot a high percentage from the field. The Eagles scored in spurts, but were outpaced by their opponents. The boys will look to improve during practice and come out focused and with more tenacity next game.
VG BB: The Lady Eagles lost a heartbreaker to Wesleyan on the Athletic Center court 28-26. The game was tilted toward Wesleyan from the beginning as the Lady Eagles struggled to score in the half court defense of Wesleyan. Yet the Eagles only trailed at halftime 15-12. The second half was much the same as the first and found the Eagles trailing by a many as nine points in the third quarter. Yet, in the fourth quarter the Eagles came alive and finally took the lead with a layup by Lauren to take their first lead of the game with 8.8 seconds. The Wesleyan team took their final timeout and wound up getting a desperation three to fall at the buzzer. Although saddened to lose, it was a game effort by the Lady Eagles once again proving to be the type of team that plays until the very end with a lot of grit and determination. The scoring leaders were Lauren with 13, Lia with 7, Quinn with 4 and Amelia with 2. The next game is November 20 against Sacred Heart in Salisbury.
JVG BB: The Summit JV Girls Basketball team played a very unselfish game Tuesday vs Calvary Day School winning 23-6. The Lady Eagles played tough defense which generated turnovers, some of which resulted in easy baskets for Summit. The team rebounded well and fought for loose balls, which is always a must. Offensive movement for each player was crisp. Eagle guards played North-South which caused Calvary to rotate, leaving a teammate open for some great shots. Scoring for the Lady Eagles were the following players: Maddie had 11 points, Abby added 4 points, while Emma, Allie, Isabella, and Cece added 2 points each. Some players had great shots that did not go in tonight, but shot selection was good. We will get back on the court the remainder of the week to practice on our execution and defense. Congratulations on a great first game. The JV Girls Team will compete again next Monday, November 20, at HOME versus Burlington Christian Academy with a 4:15 start time. Come and cheer on your Lady Eagles!!!
JVB Green: The JV boys dropped their season opener to Calvary Tuesday night, 39-16. Suffering some first game jitters, the Eagles struggled early to knock down shots and missed 13 free throws in the first half. The Cougars, meanwhile, drilled three 3 pointers and scored in transition to build a 19-4 halftime lead. Calvary's full court press continued to bother the Eagles in the second half as the Cougars padded their lead. Midway through the 3rd quarter, the Eagles began to play more aggressive on both ends of the court and strung together several baskets in a row, highlighted by Bo's 3 at the end of the quarter. James and Micah had success driving to the basket while Jay, Evan and David worked hard on the glass. The Eagles were led by James with 5 points, followed by Bo with 3. Bouldin, Jay, Jack S, and Micah chipped in 2 each. The Eagles hit the court again on Thursday against Wesleyan.
VB BB: The Summit Varsity Boys Basketball Team started the 2017-18 season with a well-played team victory over Calvary Baptist 48-32. Early pressure defense led to two consecutive steals by John, and three baskets by Thomas gave the Eagles a lead at the end of the first quarter. Thomas followed his hot start by adding seven points in the second quarter. The Eagles built the lead to 12 points at half time by playing with extreme defensive intensity holding Calvary to a lone basket during the quarter. Thomas, Henry, Noah and Ian pressured Calvary's guards throughout the second quarter to inspire the defense. Great work by the four defenders! John scored seven quick points to start the 3rd quarter, Ford hit a layup and Henry followed up with a three pointer to give the Eagles a 36-17 lead. Calvary made a strong run to cut the Eagles lead to 41-32 with three and a half minutes to play. With the game in the balance, Owen made a strong move to the basket to score and Ian hit a layup to help the Eagles built the lead. Strong ball handling plus fantastic ball movement late in the game kept the Cougars at bay. Congratulations to the team on a great start to the season.
