As a slow trickle of brightly dressed Eastern sorority and fraternity members walk to Lantz Arena they contrast the softball fans in t-shirts and shorts at Williams field. Dashes of red, yellow and green make their way across campus for Greek Sing.
Part of Eastern’s Greek Week, Greek Sing involves sororities and fraternities singing musical medleys. Lantz Arena was filled with students and family for the event Sunday.
I originally wasn’t planning on covering Greek Sing, but because of another canceled event on Friday I decided to see what I could get. I was happy I decided to spend a few hours of my Sunday afternoon in a stuffy gym. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
I covered my final two Eastern home basketball games Saturday, March 2. Both the men and women faced off against Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Lantz Arena. The men came out of of the game victorious, defeating SIUE 61-46.
The women weren’t able to come away with the victory. Eastern lost 62-70 in overtime.
I’m traveling to Nashville to cover the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament today, so there will be more photos coming soon.
Monday’s women’s basketball game against UT Martin was one of the more exciting games this semester in terms of photography. I can usually come away from a game with a few good reaction photos, but yesterday seemed like a gold mine. It’s always exciting covering a game that keeps you on your toes, and I think I came out of the game with some decent photos. After looking at the photos, it also looked like some lights were replaced in Lantz Arena because the lighting was better than usual. For the full story check out Alex McNamee’s story in the Daily Eastern News here.
With only about three more months until I graduate from Eastern, the job hunt has seized me in its clutches, and I’ve found myself going through some of my photos from the past year. As I went through them I realized a few of my favorites never made it to my blog.
