Sleep deprivation increases risk of athletic injury in teens
I've blogged about how sleep can affect athletic performance. This article discusses a study showing that teenager athletes were more prone to an athletic injury if they slept less than 8 hours. I remember not sleeping more than 6 hours per night for most of my high school years, so I imagine kids get that much or even less nowadays with all the technological gadgets available.
