Same sports, new locations

I recently took a job with the Herald and Review in Decatur, Ill, and until I graduate I’m only working part time. For the past two months high school sports have been a major aspect of what I’m covering. I can definitely say I’ve grown more comfortable finding my way around central Illinois over the past two months.

Here are few of my favorite shots from the games I’ve covered.
