Miss Consistency

I was especially happy with the way the front page turned out today, and because my story is the featured centerpiece about North Farmington defender Kelsey Shapiro.
Another funny anecdote I learned while chatting with photographer Jose Juarez, who took the art for the story, is that the ball Shapiro kicked in the photo, actually hit Juarez. He was there shooting art for the story before Monday's game, when the Raiders knocked off Farmington Hills Harrison, 4-0.
While chatting with Shapiro, I also found out her older brother, Sean, is a former Oakland Press sports intern from last summer.
As for Shapiro herself, she remains one of the area's best defenders, who, when called upon to lead the Raiders' defense as a freshman, answered the call, leading to a transition between defensive leaders that was as smooth as can be.
