Excel 2010: Formula Question (Counting Values on Other Worksheets)

Hi Experts!

   I'm having a heck of a time with my workbook.  All I need to do is tally up column B's entries on each worksheet (there are 3 of them) and then enter that count on a Summary worksheet.  

   The worksheet's names are High, Medium and Low.  The problem is, is that my present formula on the "Summary" worksheet i.e. =COUNTA(High!B:B)-8 and =COUNTA(Medium!B:B)-8 and =COUNTA(Low!B:B)-8 doesn't take into account of the multiple headers in column B therefore it's skewing the number count on the Summary worksheet.

    I need a formula that will omit the multiple headers in column B and count only cells that have data in them.  Omitting the blank rows?  The example I have attached is the exact format that I'm working with.  In this example you can click on "high, medium or low" and see the formula used on the Summary worksheet.  I've tried using basic if statements but that doesn't seem to help either.
    Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
