The first step, say experts at the Better Vision Institute, is to have your child's eyes examined. Vision testing may help athletic performance as well as lessen the chance for injuries. Parents should also talk with an eyecare professional about what type of protection is best for what sport. Experts recommend lenses made ofshatterproofpolycarbonate plastic, fitted with elastic head- bands. The National Society to Pre- vent Blindness warns that glass and ordinary plastic lenses do not pro- vide enough protection for children involved in active sports. Parents should also remember that some outdoor sports may re- quire sunglasses to protect against ultraviolet rays. Dr. John Potter of the Better Vision Institute Advisory Council says that "Given the high degree of eye-hand body coordination re- quired by most sports, every child should have an eye examination once a year. It's simple," adds Dr. Potter, "physical fitness requires visual fitness."

The second ranked Fillies thum- pod Thorp on Friday, January 18, setting a new school record with 88 points to the Lady Tigers 38 points.

Rebounds hurt Lady Bears Waterville-Mansfield stayed within one game of league leading Bridgeport wtih a crucial Central Washington B League win over Brewster Friday, January 18. The Lady Shockers earned a 59-51 win by controlling the inside game. "It came down to the fact that we gave them too many rebounds," Lady Bear coach Patricia SheRon said. "We allowed them to rebound which kept ourselves from getting second shots." Despite the Shockers management of the inside game the contest remained close. Waterville led at the end of each quarter but Brewster wasn't far behind. In the closing minutes of the game the Lady Bears would pull to within four but according to Shelton the Bears' shots weren't going in at the end.

While Waterville-Mansfield stayed atop the Central Washington B League standings with a 12-0 record, the Bears continue to hold the fourth spot with an 8 and 4 mark. "You Just can't give people second and third shots and expect to win," Brewster's coach Jim Frey said of their contest with the Shockers. "They (W-M) beat us up on the boards," Frey continued. "They took the game right to us and took us out of it. Give a lot of credit to them, they played real well." The Shockers built a 21-15 first quarter lead increasing it to 41-29 by half time.
