Championship Games

March 23, 2020

I love covering the emotions of a championship game! I've always been of the belief that athletes are there to preform before an audience, otherwise they'd be home playing in their driveways. Once they step between the white lines it becomes a game. The raw emotion found in the jubilation and dejection at the end of a championship game are just as much a part of the game as the opening tip. That's why they play the game! Once they step off the court they can have their privacy back.

Here are a few shots of St. Henry winning the All-A Classic in January, and Franklin County taking the 11th Region over Scott County a couple of weeks ago...you know, back when life was still normal.
