Pause in Play

It's been rivalry time around the Tri-Cities area for the past week or so, with Geneva taking on Batavia and St. Charles East taking on St. Charles North in football, volleyball and tennis. 

Last Friday night, I had a front row seat as the Batavia Bulldogs beat Geneva in football. And Tuesday, I watched a raucous volleyball game between East and North. The crowds were electric, and the student sections were overflowing. I have to admit, I love a good rivalry. 

Amidst all the chaos Tuesday, in the final game of a three-game match, the play got so wild that St. Charles East player Megan Schildmeyer lost her shoe and played some great volleyball with one foot only protected by her sock.
