just b/ c a girl is in a sport does not mean that they have a great self-image. I was a soccer and swimmer and went from not eating for days to binging on a reg. basis nor was I the only one.
I'd get her into gymnastics/cheerleading class so that she can do better next year, watch to make sure that she continues to eat healthy and let her do excercise if she wants so that she can tone.
Continue to moniter her eating and expose her to as many actually healthy woman images as possible and wait, don't go toooo overboard and/or obsess just stay low key unless she actually starts going to far.
This is a great time for her and the family to learn and study good nutrition and good cooking. Turn it into a positive for everyone.
Nowadays, its almost just a stage of development, but you can twist it into a positive. And stay aler.
