A Rivalry

Here’s a benefit of being a photojournalist in the community where you grew up. Last Monday, I photographed a playoff basketball game involving my alma mater, Algonquin Regional High School, and our rivals, Westborough, for the MetroWest Daily News. (My contract with MWDN has a 1-week digital embargo, hence the late post).

Despite having a hapless ref trip over me in the beginning — an occupational hazard, but still better than that time I had my foot crushed by Glen “Big Baby” Davis — it was a phenomenal game with ARHS coming out on top to advance. They ended up getting knocked out the next round, but it was nice to see ARHS pull off the upset.
