Sunday, June 29, 2014 | 6:51 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA – This week Missourian photographers captured images of screaming soccer fans, young basketball players, a posthumous award ceremony and a wild goose chase.

In this photo by T.J. Thomson, former Missouri basketball standout Kim English encourages one of the attendees of his basketball camp on Friday at Hickman High School. While training for NBA summer leagues, English also leads three camps in Missouri

Linda Mitchell, 56, sits in her Oak Towers apartment in this photo by T.J. Thomson. Her two favorite holidays are Mother's Day and Christmas, she said. She keeps two miniature Christmas trees in her apartment, so she can enjoy the holiday year-round. Mitchell stays positive as she regains her ability to walk after years of illness.

Each goose is identified by its sex, assumed age and whether it was previously tagged. 

 

In this photo by J. Evan Arnold, Leigh Britt and her daughter, Stormy, accept the Firefighter Lifesaver Award from the American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter on behalf of her late husband, Lt. Bruce Britt, on Tuesday in Jefferson City. Lt. Bruce Britt died after a walkway collapsed at MU's University Village apartments on February 22. In her acceptance speech, Leigh Britt encouraged all audience members to hold local officials accountable for enforcing building codes. 

J. Evan Arnold captures Jon Whitaker as he celebrates the second U.S. goal against Portugal at International Tap House, where he is the general manager, on Sunday. "When soccer is played perfectly it really is a beautiful game," Whitaker said. "The intensity behind one goal is incredible."

A woven mask hangs in Michael Marlo's office in MU's Tate Hall, in this photo by Kylee Gregg. The mask is called “Ingolole” in the Tiriki community of western Kenya where it was made. It is made for boys who are undergoing initiation rites, the most important of which is circumcision. They wear the masks as part of the ceremony. Marlo is a linguist helping to preserve and study threatened African languages
