FARMER’S KORNER – Cheers, stomping and applause thundered through the Summit High School gymnasium Friday afternoon as the students, faculty and community celebrated the successful athletic season.All seven fall teams finished in the upper half of their league and all were involved in state playoffs, school officials said.”I don’t think we will ever be the same because now people know what Summit High School is and we’re not going back,” Principal Jim Hesse announced as he kicked off the Fall 2006 Pride Celebration.Superintendent Millie Hamner spoke to the students, congratulating them on their hard work and recognizing the role athletics play in the high school experience.”In the six years I’ve been working in the Summit County schools this has never happened,” she said, adding how impressed she is.

Dan Gibbs, state representative elect, also came to congratulate the students. “I had the honor to see the football team this year and I swear I was watching Ohio State,” he said.Silverthorne Mayor Dave Koop came prepared showing off his spirit with a Tiger shirt and hat. He talked about the football team and their impressive season, as well as encouraged students to continually challenge themselves to do well.”Win or lose you benefit from competition,” he said. “Winning gives you the drive and desire to stay on top. Losing helps you identify goals… Seniors I want to thank you again. You have definitely raised the bar.”Throughout the assembly, Tiger cheerleaders did what they do best – belted out support, team spirit and creative routines for the crowd. And as the celebration came to a roaring end, school officials challenged the winter teams to continue the athletic successes of the fall.

“It’s been a heck of a ride so far,” Koop said. “Let’s keep the tradition going.”Stellar Summit Sports ShowingMen’s Soccer, 9-4-2 record, finished 3rd in the league
