Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to experience my first fall season covering high school sports. Most of my nights have been spent at either a volleyball, soccer or football game, and with state finals right around the corner I thought I would gather some of my favorite photos from the season so far.
Out of all the sports I’ve covered this year cycling has proved to be the most challenging. Not because I couldn’t get enough photos, but because I wanted to get something different. I covered The Mighty, Mighty, Tour de Nez on Sunday, July 29, in downtown Reno. I wasn’t able to get any of the quirky races that happened earlier in the day because I was on another assignment, but I got downtown with enough time to cover the masters and pro races.
The challenge for me was to get something other than the riders coming at me or the go-to pan shot. After a few hours and a couple of races I was pretty happy with my results. Unlike some of the other sports I’ve covered I think I can find some cycling events around Charleston.
For the first time in Eastern history a student competed in the game show “Jeopardy!” which aired Thursday Feb. 2, 2012. A viewing was held in the Andrews Hall basement were supporters of Anne Rozek, a junior geography major, came to watch and cheer her on. Rozek finished in third place.
Rozek watches the first airing of the “Jeopardy!” episode she starred in. “Everyone has been so supportive. it’s really great that they came out and were cheering and forgave my not so great buzzer skills and brain farts,” Rozek said.
Jacob Deters, a junior music education major, winces as he waits for Rozek to answer a question.
Rozek reacts as she watches herself answer a question.
