SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, September 21, 2011 Page 8 SMSU Admissions Counselor to visit Westbrook- Walnut Grove High School By Sue Herding Coach The WWG Chargers JV team came out on the losing end of a hard fought battle against the MCC Rebels last Tuesday night, September 13, in Slayton. Both games were close right to the very end. Each team displayed some great offensive and defensive efforts. In Game 1 the Chargers and Rebels basically traded point for point, but MCC's experience and a serving error by the Chargers allowed the Rebels to win by a score of 26-24. Alexa Byers led the team in defensive digs with 7, followed closely by Abby Herding with 6 and Mady Johnson with 4. Shiney Her was impressive in her perfor- mance in receiving serve which allowed the Chargers to set up quite a few great offensive plays. Jordaan Joel provided 2 solo blocks and Liz Woelber had 1 to go along with 2 attacks kills and 1 tip kill. Game 2 started out very much like a repeat perfor- mance of Game 1. Once again each team came out red hot on offense, but in the end MCC pulled away after a 22-22 tie to win Game 2 by a score of 25-22. Alexa Byers again led the team defensive- ly with 7 digs. She also pro- vided some great serving as she went 5 for 5 behind the line. Mady Johnson and Liz Woelber each contributed 5 digs. What do you do when your windshield wipers stop working, your left tail- light burns out, and your brakes give out? Some may opt to fix the problem them- selves, but many turn to the services and handiwork of auto repair mechanics. While most auto repair businesses are honest and forthcoming, consumers need to be on the lookout for those that are trying to make a quick buck. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) advises con- sumers to do their research before choosing an auto repair service. It's important for con- sumers to be on the lookout for scams like overcharging on repairs, charging for labor that was never per- formed, and performing shoddy work. In 2010, the BBB received a whopping 12,682 complaints against auto repair mechanics. This year alone, the BBB has already received nearly 11,000 complaints. "Many times consumers r~alize that they have been ~ed, but they don't ~ve any way of proving it," said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB. "It's extremely important to get all esti- mates for parts and labor in writing before authorizing anything." The BBB recommends the following auto repair service tips: *Get a least three refer- rals. If you are looking for a qualified mechanic, ask friends, family and co- workers for recommenda- tions. Be sure to check with to see if there have been any complaints Chargers vs. RLB Raiders By Sue Herding Coach The Chargers JV volleyball team swept the Round Lake Brewster Raiders 2-0 in Thursday night's, September 15, home match. Serving was a big part of the game against a fairly inexperienced Raiders team. The Chargers fired 17 ace serves as a team in the win. Kaylee Mischke led the team with 6 followed by Liz Woelber and Jordaan Joel with 4. In game one the Chargers never let the Raiders com- plete a full lineup rotation and the Chargers won 25-5. Abby Herding started the game with 7 straight points and Kaylee Mischke came to the line for the final 7. The Raiders struggled in their passing, thus the Chargers never really got many offen- sive situations. Mady Johnson, Liz Woelber and Jordaan Joel each had 1 kill in the game. Again in game 2, Kaylee Mischke ~was impressive from the service line. She finished the game out with 9 straight points. The Chargers had very little opportunity to set the ball up, but Jordaan Joel led the attack game. She was 3 for 3 with 3 kills. Deziree Koenig had a kill as did Mady Johnson. The JV squad is now 4 - 2 in regular season play. filed against the business. Look for shops that display certification. For major work, such as brakes, trans- mission or engine repair, you need to find a shop employing a specialist. *Ask as many questions as you need. Don't be embarrassed to request technical definitions. Don't rush the technician into making an on-the-spot diagnosis of the problem. Ask to be called after diag- nostics have been complet- ed to discuss a course of action and labor costs before any work begins. *Get everything in writ- ing. Before authorizing repairs, get a written esti- mate for parts and labor. Tell the shop to get your permission before making additional repairs. Ensure that you receive notifica- tion by having the service manager write a request on the bottom of the repair order. Give phone numbers where the business can con- tact you and before you leave, be sure to understand all shop policies regarding labor rates, guarantees, and acceptable methods of pay- ment. *Do a walk-through with your mechanic. When you pick up your vehicle, get an explanation of all work that was performed and get all guarantees in writing. Ask the technician to point out any major new parts that were installed. Your repair bill should be itemized so if a problem occurs later, you can prove the item is cov- ered by the guarantee. For more tips you can trust, visit bbb-news.
