    Well, my daughter's lacrosse career has come to an end and on a winning note. On Saturday her college team beat their rival and won the conference championship. It was a back and forth game with the "good guys" coming out on top 13-11.

    When she was a freshman most of the juniors and seniors quit on the team and there were a few lean years including many games they had to play an entire game down a player. I'm proud of her for sticking with it and not quitting! Here are some shots from the game taken with either the Minolta Maxxum 200mm 2.8 or the Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8 on my NEX-7.

    Here she is, #9. This year she didn't score as many points as other years but did a great job moving the ball down the field and setting up others.

    She scored her 100th career point this game - I missed it but this is right after.

    #7 is a sophomore and played with my daughter in high school. She will likely be named the Conference player of the year. Tremendous athlete that also plays field hockey.

    The game did get a bit "chippy" at times...

    #1 isanother senior and had a knack for getting the ball in the net.

    Some very nice action photos. You must be proud of your daughter:) That Maxxum 200mm seems like a very good performer!

    Big congrats to your daughter and to her team! A very nice culmination in her senior year.
    And a great set of sports action photos, that big Maxxum serves you well.

    Thanks Dave. NEX-7 is showing signs of slowing down. I'm up around 150,000 shots on it.

    Thanks Mus!

    Thanks Will! The Minolta is an amazing lens - never let me down.
