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 Missouri 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.

MICDS takes Class 4 state baseball title

Fair warning: this post is going to have more photos than usual. The Class 4 state baseball championship was a great game to shoot, filled with action and emotion.

MICDS defeated Boonville to take the program’s first state title on Saturday at CarShield Field in O’Fallon. You can read the story and see my photos for the Post-Dispatch here. 

My top three favorite photos:

Lacrosse state title games

I covered the Missouri Scholastic Lacrosse Association’s state title games for the Post-Dispatch last weekend.

It’s always fun to cover lacrosse and shooting at Lindenwood was a lot of fun. It’s a great facility.
