After living up to its moniker for most of the day, the Sunshine State showed its darker side this afternoon as thunderstorms rolled in around us. With the safety of the players and referees foremost in their mind, Academy staff called for a suspension of games until the lightning passed. With teams off the field and under shelter, we waited out the worst and are happy to announce that games are back underway.
As for what's coming up, the YNT blog is off to watch the U-17 Men's National Team take on the first of two Academy Select teams. We'll be back after the game with more updates and news as Day 1 of the 2009 Development Academy Spring Showcase comes to a close.
