Fall and winter sports update

The start of October marked the road to IHSA state finals for local high school teams in Decatur. I mainly covered volleyball and football with some cross country sprinkled in.

Emotions ran  high with many of the athletes as their seasons came to a close, and I think you will be able to see that in the photos.

Recently, basketball has dominated my shooting schedule, so there will be many more photos of that in the coming months.

Here are some of my favorite sports photos since October.

Fall 2013 High School Sports

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.

Weekend of wrestling ends perfect season

I finished the final days of my winter break shooting a few of my brother’s wrestling meets and tournaments before heading back to school on the 9th. Here is an overview of the weekend.

Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012 marked the start of a weekend of wrestling that ended Tyler’s previously perfect season. Thursday was a home meet at Thornwood High school in South Holland, Ill., against Lincoln Way West. The match ended with Tyler getting the pin with a 1 minute and 3 seconds left on the clock extending his record to 12-0.

Friday marked his first loss against Bradley-Bourbonnais. Tyler wrestled up during the meet going from his usual weight class of 126 to 132. The match ended 5-6 putting his record at 12-1.

Saturday was a double elimination tournament hosted by Bradley-Bourbonnais. Tyler lost his first match to a pin in the first period.

Losing the first match put him in the wrestle back bracket with a chance to take fifth place. In the next match he won with a pin.

Tyler eventually took sixth place loosing his final match in the tournament with a record at the end of the meet of 13-3.

First wrestling meet during my break

This is the first of five Thornwood high school wrestling meets of my winter break. My brother Tyler, the one in the yellow and blue head gear that is currently falling off, won the match against a Stagg high school wrestler. Tyler was able to get the pin in the second round. The win moved his record to 10-0 for the season. Since Eastern doesn’t have a wrestling team it’s nice to shoot a different sport over break. Over the course of my time off from school I’m going to try to get a little more creative when it comes to shooting wrestling. Hopefully there will be a few more dynamic photos in the future.
