2017 CHSAA Volleyball Fruita Monument vs Ralston Valley

2017 CHSAA Volleyball Fruita Monument vs Ralston Valley

On Thursday I headed to Ralston Valley High School to shoot some volleyball. I love the game, but in all honesty, hate shooting it. You just cannot strobe, unless you are in a huge arena and have strobes mounted in the catwalks. Strobes in a high school gym, unlike basketball, most of the time, cause […]
