I caught myself humming pomp and circumstance yesterday around my house as I got ready for work, so I was glad that today was my last high school graduation of the year. From Grace Prep’s graduation, with a moment of hugs and prayers for each student, to State College in the Bryce Jordan Center and Penns Valley’s outside just beating a storm I tried my best to capture the personalities of the 2015 graduates.
Centre County softball teams keep battling the bats to continue in the PIAA softball tournament. This afternoon I traveled to cover Philipsburg-Osceola take on Beaver at St. Francis University. I had never photographed at the Red Flash stadium, and I spent most of the game wondering around the field looking for the right angle and location to get clean images. I did this as the Lady Mounties started on a high note, fell apart for several inning then came back in the seventh for the win.
Today I traveled to Hershey for the first day of PIAA State wrestling. After covering wrestling all season I was ready for the 8 mats that cover the Hershey Giant Center’s floor for the first round. This year we didn’t have as many wrestlers for me to keep track of and I’ve learned the ropes of the tournament after my three day stay there last year.
