My son's high school (Curtis, Tacoma) won the Washington State Girl's Championship in water polo last evening. The final score was 4-3 and it was a very close and exciting game. Their opponents, from Gig Harbor, had beaten the girls twice in the regular season ... the only two losses our team suffered.

Our son plays water polo for the high school boy's team (as well as swimming on the swim team) and knows quite a few of the girls, thus I was "volunteered" to shoot some photos of the girl's games this season. I've posted some before ... but here are a few from the Championship Game ...

2 Probably our top player looks for an opening ...


3 Some defense ...

And probably my favorite shot of the night ... talk about being in the right spot at the right time!!

8 One of our girls selected as Defensive Player of the tournament.

I learned a lot and plan to apply that knowledge this fall during my son's games!! I made a lot of pictures available to the team and the girls and their families have really enjoyed them.

Comments?

Cheers!!

Very good, in tough shooting conditions no doubt.
Thanks ... I'm actually quite lucky. Our pool was recently refurbished and is clearly the best in the region. The lighting is several stops better than the other pools we visit.

I shot all of these at 1/500 @f5.6. ISO was set to Auto and most are in the 3,000 - 6,000 range.

Thanks for looking.

Ken
