GBK: Kneeland Helping Develop Future Eagles

GBK: Kneeland Helping Develop Future Eagles
SUMMIT, SD - Over the past couple of seasons, the Summit girls' basketball team has become a Class 'B' staple, claiming the title in 2009, and finishing in second place last season. A large part of the team's success can be attributed to returning senior Alex Kneeland's presence on the court.

Kneeland holds state records for most points in a semi-final game with 40 back in 2009 as well as most points scored in championship round play with 104 last season.

"The records are really cool, anybody would think so, but state championships mean a lot more to me and that's kind of what I'm after now," Kneeland said.

Since Summit doesn't have a junior varsity basketball program, Kneeland started playing varsity ball in the 7th grade, where older players helped her develop.

"As soon as you're a 7th grader you're at varsity practice. It's not so much if they have the talent or not, they have to if they want to play basketball it's going to be at varsity practice," coach Mark Amdahl said. "I'm looking for kids who have a great attitude and want to give the effort every day. If they've got a great attitude, I'd sure like to have them on my team."

And now that Kneeland is entering her last season at Summit, she is returning the favor to her younger teammates.

"I really just try to encourage them and help them out with what I know and have learned about the game and pass it along to them so hopefully they can continue on with success after I'm gone," Kneeland said.
