Goin’ to the Dome! Bulldogs Defeat Quarriers – Madison South Dakota Sports Photography

I love daytime football, but daytime football on the 10th of November is still COLD when the wind is blowing. Hot chocolate was in short supply at Trojan Field as the Bulldogs faced off in third round playoff action against the Dell Rapids Quarriers. The final score did not truly reflect how close the game was until the middle of the third quarter. Check out many images from yesterday afternoon below.

Making the Grade – MHS Bulldogs Win in 1st Round – Madison SD Sports Photography

Sports can teach you lots of life lessons: learning the sacrifices needed to win and how to hold your head up after you lose. Being a part of a team means not letting down your friends and that can help motivate students to keep those grades up more than any parent can. I want to see everyone dressed for the playoff games so I can get them in pictures on the way to the dome. Keep those grades up….stepping off soapbox now…

Last night we had a late studio session which made me a few minutes late for the start of the game. No big deal I told myself – there would be plenty of time. I was wrong. As I pulled up to the parking lot the score was 35 to 0. I must’ve been running later than I thought…New rule when coming to Bulldog games: Be early.

Check out a few images from last night’s game below.

Friday Volleyball – ORR vs Castlewood – Rutland South Dakota Sports Photography

Taking pictures of volleyball is hard…yes even for me. Timing is everything to get that ball in the frame. At the start of the season, I get frustrated by my inability to get the height of the action. As the volleyball season ends, I have got the technique back and my success rate has gone up. I am still irritated with hands in front of the face and images that are slightly out of focus…and yes balls that are just out of the frame. Check out a few images of Rachel’s friends from tonight’s action at Rutland.

MHS Bulldogs vs West Central Trojans – Madison South Dakota Sports Photography

The stands were packed at Trojan Field as the #1 ranked West Central Trojans faced #2 Madison. The Bulldogs took the early lead with a Jacob Giles to Mason Hemmer touchdown. The lead expanded to 24 to 7 by halftime. Our talk on the sidelines between media was that the lead was not great enough for West Central to be out of the game and we were right. The Bulldogs were able to hold off the late game Trojan rally to win by 3 points.
