Cal State Long Beach Men's Basketball vs Cal State Fullerton

And to think I almost didn't go to this game. I am so happy I did, there was just so much energy with the fans and it was a great high energy action packed game to shoot.

From what I understand they had a record breaking spectators, which really showed with the intensity of the fans.

Really not much to say after that, so enjoy the shots.

Girls Varsity Soccer - Lakewood vs Cabrillo

Two days in a row of perfect weather to be outside shooting sports. Wednesday I was off and covered a soccer game, while Thursday - the day of this game - I had to work. Stuck inside an office with no windows and not seeing the outside until it was time to go home (my usual work day). Once I heard the weather was like the day prior (Wednesday) I decided to use a few vacation hours and leave work early to shoot another soccer game. I am so pleased I did, as it was a great afternoon to simply be outside and being outside shooting action is the perfect day for me.

So enjoy another set of high school soccer.

Boys Varsity Soccer - Lakewood vs Poly

Yesterday I was off and it was such a beautiful day I decided to head out and shoot some high school soccer. After checking the schedule I found a game that I thought would give me some great action to shoot - "Lakewood vs Poly". So I headed to Poly high to enjoy the day.

As soccer games go I didn't leave with many shots. There was a lot of good action, just that when the action occured it was either on the far end of the field or there were just too many other players between me and them, but before you think - What no action! Look below, I was able to come away with some nice action as you really know I could.

Long Beach Middle School Girls Basketball City Championships

I attended and covered this years Long Beach Middle School Girls Basketball City Championships, which were held at Millikan High this past Saturday.

The first game matched the Franklin Wildcats against the Compers Gators who both went undefeated throughout the season. Even though the Gators were playing with only six during the first three periods and most of the forth this was a very close game. I commend the Gators for not giving up and giving it all they got, but in the end the Franklin Wildcats found themselves the victor.

The second game matched up the Hughes Owls and the Jefferson Jaguars who also went undefeated throughout the season.

This game was not as closely matched as the first one with Hughes dominating the game and in the end taking the win.
