NYS Champions

Last weekend, I spent 21 hours standing in a cold ice rink, photographing the Great Lakes Girls Hockey League championship tournament. Nine teams from around Western New York and Erie, PA converged on the Canandaigua Civic Center to battle it out for the season ending bragging rights.
I never realized how much of a work out standing still photographing is. I was so sore by the time Monday rolled around. The Batavia Ramparts took home the trophy after having a great tournament.

Things went so well with the photos that I got a call on Tuesday to photograph the New York State Championship tournament in Batavia for the Tier III Pee Wee boys. Teams from Northern New York near Massena as well as downstate from Palisades and Bronxville came to Batavia this past weekend. One of the teams participating was also our own Canandaigua Knights Pee Wee travel team. The competition was close with all the teams except Canandaigua. They were like a well oiled machine that would allow nothing to stand in their way. They went through the tournament undefeated, playing a style and intensity of hockey well beyond their 12 years of age. Congratulations boys. It was a pleasure to watch such pretty hockey.
