Summit girls’ hoops tops Alameda

The Tiger girls’ basketball team beat Alameda 45-23 Friday night at the SHS gym for the team’s second Jeffco League win of the season.

Senior Chloe Webber led the team with 10 points, junior point guard Jessica Malknecht had eight, and senior Emmy Anderson went 6-8 from the free-throw line.

“Everybody played really well,” SHS head coach Rachel Dunaway said. ” … Alameda was scrappy. They shot a lot of 3-pointers with a lot of long rebounds.”

The Tigers also got a strong performance from transfer student Sarah Matthews, who recently came to Summit from Australia.

“She played really well,” Dunaway said. “She’s only been a part of the team for a couple weeks now and doesn’t fully know our offensive plays, but she does know basketball.”

The Tigers (6-10, 2-6) played a make-up game with Buena Vista on Saturday. The game was not completed in time for print.

Their next game will be Monday at Golden High School at 7 p.m.

The Summit High boys’ hoops team suffered another narrow loss Friday night, this time at the hands of league foe Alameda.

“We were in the ball game the whole time,” SHS head coach Phil Tronsrue said. “We cut it to four late in the fourth, but turned it over a few times.”

The Tigers wound up losing 59-46, as Alameda knocked down 11 of 14 free throws down the stretch.

Sophomore Markeith McDonald led the team with 15 points, including three 3-pointers, and senior Michael Leopold scored 10.

Coy Coker added eight points for Summit.

The Tigers also had a make-up game with Buena Vista Saturday and are back at SHS on Monday when they close out their home slate with a game against Golden at 5:30 p.m.
