Golden Wolves taking long road trip to Vernon

BY BILL KELLY
THE DALHART TEXAN

The Dalhart Golden Wolves will be taking the first of two very long road trips this season as they travel to Vernon today to play the Lions in their third straight road game.

Dalhart is 2-1 on the season so far, and could very easily be undefeated if not for a last-second touchdown by Borger in their opening game. The Wolves have played well on the road so far. The beat Spearman two weeks ago by as score of 36-20, and then defeated River Road last week 36-29, coming from behind with under four minutes to win the game.

Sports are the leading cause of youth eye injuries

Active children have the advantage of being in good physical shape and keeping their weight in check. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say one in five children are considered overweight or obese, but being engaged in a sport or other activity promotes exercise, which can be a good thing for both physical and mental health.

Although playing sports is beneficial for various reasons, there are some inherent risks to participating in them as well. Physical injuries, such as concussions and broken bones, can result from participating in sports. But perhaps surprisingly, eye injuries are quite common among young athletes. Such injuries often do not get the attention with regard to prevention that statistics suggest they warrant.
