2013 NCAA Basketball Stanford at Colorado

This started out being a good night and ended a bad night.  I started out going out to shoot some pregame stuff, and I ended up over by the Stanford bench, and asked one of the ball boys who had been with the team the longest.  I was hoping there was a trainer or a […]

A day after the loss to the Ralston Valley Lady Mustangs, the A-West Lady Wildcats were at it again, hosting Bear Creek.  Hope was the home team would bounce back from the shellacking they received from RV and take it to Bear Creek. As you can see in the photo above, it was not going […]

2013 HS Girls and Boys Basketball Double Header - Ralston Valley at Arvada West

Since shooting high schools in the Denver area this school year, I am learning a lot about the histories and rivalries.  In 2000 Ralston Valley opened to alleviate the student/teacher ratios at Pomona and Arvada West high schools.  Almost immediately, Ralston Valley started winning the League Championships and would go to the State Playoff many […]

I headed up to Boulder on Saturday morning to shoot the Bruins and Buffs game.  After beating USC a couple nights before, I knew this was going to be a tough match up for the Buffs.  UCLA has always been a tough school.  But, the Buffaloes have a great record at home and a great […]

This was the 4th time I had seen Pomona, and in the first 3 games they were not looking too good. Going into this game, the Panthers were […]
