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:

Spiked

Being so busy lately means that there’s no shortage of material for me to put up here. The flip side is that it’s hard to time to post anything in a timely manner.

For example, here’s a few images from last week’s MIAA boys state volleyball playoffs, pitting neighboring rivals Newton South against Needham.

5.27.2010 — NEWTON, Mass. — Newton South's Brooks Remy (20) tries to block a spike from Needham's Ross Burdett in the South Sectional Semi-Finals on May 27, 2010. Newton South won, 3-2.


5.27.2010 — NEWTON, Mass. — Newton South's Josh Horenstein tries to spike the ball past Needham's Sam Rubin (7) and Ryan Hagan (21) in the South Sectional Semi-Finals on May 27, 2010. Newton South won, 3-2.

Outfield Assist

Hectic day running around town for the Herald yesterday, but at least I got to wrap it up with some time at the ballpark, aka my happy place. Sure, I got there late — a stakeout tied me up for much of the afternoon — but it was low scoring, with some good defense to make things interesting for the few innings I did get to see.

Here’s how you perform an outfield assist, by the way.

6.3.2010 — CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Tewksbury catcher Lauren Teixeira tags out Arlington Catholic pinch runner Jessica Cameron at home in Arlington's 1-0 win over Tewksbury at St. Peter's Field in Cambridge on June 3, 2010.

Not really a relevant picture, since Arlington Catholic won, 1-0, but great action, nonetheless.
