Geneva girls varsity soccer players take cover from a rain storm that involved lightning last week at Burgess Field.

With spring sports, inevitably there’s spring weather. Unpredictable to say the least. This week, while assigned to photograph the Geneva vs. Kaneland girls varsity soccer game in Geneva, a streak of lightning flashed across the sky just as I parked my car. The teams quickly left the field after only one minute of playing and hunkered down in the two sheds available to wait out the 30-minute delay. Since I had the time to kill, I decided to photograph the girls in the sheds. Both teams were giggling and goofing around. It was a carefree moment that quickly dissolved as the teams took to the field after the delay, and the players put on their game faces.
