I've been waiting for the medals to arrive and they turned up this week. This group of girls took out the 16 Women Division 3 NSW Country Championships for the second year in a row. Of course most of the players are new but it's back to back for me as their coach. We had a couple of solid victories for the weekend but overall it was a tough comp. We faced 7 games and took out 6 of them including the grand final. Well done girls! Proud of ya'. And thanks to Lee and PC and all the parents that made it a great weekend.

The technicalities; A couple of SB's bounced and a touch of photoshop.
I finally have the equipment to strobe basketball. This could be very useful in some of the dark stadiums I've attempted to shoot in. Even last night at Albury Stadium, which is one of the better lit stadiums around, I found it hard to shoot the first part of the women's game. The 'tv' lights are never turned on until the news cameras arrive, leaving me with slow shutter speeds. However, now I have the opportunity to shoot any time in any dimly lit stadium I choose. The big thing for me is the fact that this shot doesn't even look like flash has been used. Gotta love Nikon!
