Wow, what fun! That was my reaction after watching and photographing my first lacrosse game today. Hill’s varsity lacrosse team had their opening season game at home when they hosted Wakefield. I didn’t quite know what to expect, both as a spectator and photographer, because Cam was new to the game and a significant number of sixth-graders had been bumped up to varsity. In fact, this morning Cam said he was hoping the team wouldn’t get crushed.
As it turns out, Hill dominated the game, with the final score well in their favor. I was surprised with the intensity and aggressiveness of the play, though, especially after years spent on the soccer sidelines. But it was certainly fun to shoot!
I have a lot to learn in anticipating the action and did delete a significant number of photos. So, I look forward to fine-tuning my skills in tandem with Cameron, although I’m happy that for me the games won’t end with blood and sweat like his did today!
