Summit girls basketball team hosted Nantahala last week for the Lady Bears’ season opener and ended up victorious with a final of 32-20.
Summit Caitlynn Couch said the Lady Hawks made them work for the win.
“It was an aggressive game, hands and arms everywhere, but I think we did pretty good for the first game,” said Couch. “We need to work on our offense and passing, but we went out there and gave it our all.”
Summit Taylor Robinson scored 16 and Sidney Sinclair put 9 on the board. Robinson you never know how the first game is going to go.
“We communicated well and we gave it our all,” said Robinson. “I’m very proud of us.”
The Lady Bears have several players new to the game and thinks everyone did a great job in the season opener.
“I think we did well, especially for a team with a lot of new people,” said Sidney Sinclair. “We had a lot of nerves before the game, but we got through that. And the more we play together, the better we’ll get.”
Summit played Eagle Ridge on Thursday on the road and won 44-26, beginning their season with a 2-0 record. Robinson was on fire scoring 23 against Eagle Ridge, including knocking down 6 three-pointers.
