Like Fish

Continuing with this latest theme of high school sports championships, I wrapped up my weekend for the Herald with the MIAA Division 1 Swim Dive Championships over at Harvard’s Blodgett Pool. It was loud, hot and humid in there, so there were plenty of enthusiastic teammates on the deck to liven up the otherwise solitary scenes of lone swimmers in the water.

I had a full slate of assignments ahead of me for the Herald, so unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to stick around for any of the championship rounds. From what it sounded like in that confined space for the preliminary rounds, I’m sure it was crazy!

Soccer Ballin’

So it’s high school sports championship season — usually a time of year when I get to shoot a lot of sports for the Boston Herald. And it happens three times a year!

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.
