The game within the game

In college sports preview photographs, I like to focus on graduates of local high schools because our local readers I think are more interested in seeing them than say a kid from Idaho or Alaska. It takes a bit more concentration, patience and luck to get those locals either in the same photograph or doing something interesting.

So on Friday night when WVC was playing their first games of the season, I attempted to get all three former Eastmont players in one frame.

I was able to get quite a few photographs of two of the three together but it wasn't until the second half that after one of Shaeanna Jones' many moments of taking charges that Bekah Waterhouse and Charity Degman came over to pick her off the floor. It's a bonus that all three graduated the same year too. They are the only local ladies on the Knight team this year.

It seemed to be more of a challenge in the guy's game as the locals weren't teammates in high school and they didn't seem to hang very close to each other. I was able to get them individually during interesting moments though making for some nice action. Here's Austin Chandler formerly of Wenatchee High School.

And finally JJ Jahr who played for Eastmont last year. It's an interesting exercise photographing specific people during a game rather than concentrating on and representing the game and its outcome with a single picture.
