Lacrosse State Champs!

It was a big weekend in Worcester for the MIAA spring sports state finals, namely softball and lacrosse. I always enjoy photographing these events, especially at the high school level where the enthusiasm is genuine and the access is phenomenal. I always get a lot of requests from parents for prints, too, which is just some icing on the cake and little beer money in my pocket.

Beautiful weather, plenty of sun (my farmer’s tan proves it), and good action made for a rewarding, albeit hectic (covered three games for the Herald), afternoon.

Here’s a selection from the MIAA Division 1 Lacrosse championship:
