'" This was a week of near misses. 'If a few shots had fallen we would have been the champions. We lost :the semifinal to Parkersburg South 'by 5 points on Thursday night, and then a 3-point buzzer beater was the difference in the consolation game vith Princeton on Saturday. We opened on Monday with a '.tough game against Woodrow Wilson. After 1 quarter of play, 'Woodrow held the lead by a score of 14 to 11. By the time the first half ended it was 24 to 23 Summers County. At the end of the third quarter the ,score was tied at 31 apiece. But in the fourth quarter we outscored . :them by 13 to 6 to give us the win by a margin of 44 to 37. Brandi Basham led the scoring for us with 11 points. She had 5 steals and 5 assists to go with her -points. Joanna Mills led the team in rebounding by grabbing 10. The win ,meant that we would play in the isemifinal Thursday against the winner of the Parkersburg South and James Monroe Game that was IMayed on Wednesday.

"These therapies effectively treat glaucoma while at the same time .greatly reducing side effects," said Jack A. McLaughlin, Ph.D., acting director of the NEI, one of the Federal government's National Institutes of Health. Glaicoma, a leading cause of '- irreversible vision loss in the United States, is a disease that affects three ,million Americans, half of whom do not know they have it because of its lack of early symptoms. Advances in *glaucoma treatment are only beneficial when the disease is detected early. By the time people realize they are losing vision, the visionthey have already lost is gone "- forever. Those in higher risk groups "should get a dilated eye exam - in which drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils - at least every two -years. A dilated eye exam allows the eye care professional to obtain a better view of the eye's optic nerve to look for early signs of glaucoma. Higher risk groups include anyone "over the age of 60; African -Americans over the age of 40; and people who have a family history of rglaucoma. Two new glaucoma drugs- latanoprost and dorzolamide-based on NEI-supported research. "reduce ' unpleasant side effects, such as dry eyes and increased risk of retinal detachment,  Dr. McLaughlin said. '"The side effects from the older glaucoma treatments were major "reasons why some glaucoma patients did not take their medications. The new therapies help ,. preserve remaining vision and mark : a significant step in improving the quality of life for people with .  glaucoma.:  ..... Continued next week. Summers County's Brandi Basham shoots a three-pointer in the semifinal over Parkersburg South's Corrie Sizemore, in the Mountain State Coal Classic. Photo by Tom Woolridge 3 pointer from the half court line to end the game with us loosing by 5 points 47 to 42. The ref basically decided this one instead of letting the girls on the floor do it with their play. This loss meant we would play Princeton who lost to Greenbrier East in the consolation on Saturday. In the Semi with South, Mallory Grogg finished with 17 points and 7 rebounds. Brandi Basham had 13 points while Joanna Mills grabbed 13 boards and Kelly Reed scored eight points. On Saturday Morning the game with Princeton was a "crowd- pleaser" if you weren't from Summers County. It was tough and it swung back and forth. Princeton took the lead in the first quarter by a score of 16 to 8. Our shots weren't falling. By the half it was still Princeton but the score narrowed to 28 to 25. By 3 minutes and 52 seconds into the third quarter we took the lead at 32 to 31. We held the lead until the game was tied up at 46 all with 7 seconds on the clock. Then Princeton hit a long buzzer beater for 3 points to win it by a final score of 49 to 46. Mallory Grogg led our scoring with 18 points and Brandi hit 14 including 3-three- pointers. Joanna Mills abbet .10 rebod's' by m unOc l sihtistic $ozals., , ,,,. -- eenbrier "East won the Tournament with a victory over Parkersburg South, in the Girls Division. Woodrow Wilson defeated Greenbrier East to take the Boys Title. Oak Hill Academy beat Coastal Christian Academy in the National Division. In all we showed some real chemistry as a team even though we lost two this week by narrow margins. With a little more improvement we still have a good shot at the States. But we need more fan support for the girls wha work harder then most of us can imagine being a Summers County Lady Bobcat. The next scheduled game is on Thursday Night January 30. Be there.
