Softball State Champs

Continuing with my high school sports marathon day from Saturday, here’s a selection of photos from the MIAA Division 2 Softball championship between Hudson and Stoneham. It wasn’t exactly a close game, but what put Hudson ahead was their defense, which always makes for good photos.

There was also some interesting backstories on this team, too, from the starting pitcher celebrating her birthday and the catcher hitting her first career home run.

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:

Beef…

So I found these guys chilling out next to my car after I wrapped up covering a brush fire in Peabody. Easily the most interesting thing I photographed all day!

Unfortunately, these guys happen to live about 5 miles down Route 1 from the Hilltop Steakhouse…
