I was surprised with this category. There were a lot of entries but not many photos that had the wow factor. Most were normal photos that papers run everyday. There were also a lot of photos entered in this category that should have been in sports features. First and second place were good peak action photo of basketball scrambles. Third place was a good photo but we felt that it should have been cropped a lot tighter around the waist of the wrestler to lose the other photographer and ads in the background.
