Say it ain’t snow!

With most of the NCAA fall sports just getting started with their postseason play, a freak snowstorm from a Nor’Easter isn’t exactly what anyone was expecting for this time of year. For the Tufts field hockey team, Wednesday’s Nor’Easter just so happened to coincide with their first-round NCAA Tournament game. And as always, bad weather usually makes for good photos. Snowfall during the fall sports season is exceedingly rare, so of course I was out there getting some photos.
