We really like the energy, excitement and composition in the first place image. We were impressed by the crazy moment that was seen and caught by the photographer in the second place photo. Nice job. Third place has peak celebration centered around the hug with lots of faces. Seems to be caught right at the end of the game. Of the many high school basketball celebrations, it stood above the rest. This was overall a very weak category.
