Tennis: State championships in Springfield

Galleries from Day 1 and Day 2 can be found at STLhighschoolsports.com.


I photographed the state tennis championships in Springfield this weekend. It worked out well since I was in town for┬áMissouri State’s homecoming and alumni association meetings, so I got a chance to photograph a new sport.

It’s not really new to me, but the last time I photographed tennis was in high school. Nonetheless, I feel the results turned out pretty well.
