Entries in this category would benefit from more robust captions. It takes more time but is worth the effort to inform the viewer. Judges were impressed entries ranged the gamut from high school to college and pros. Difficult category to judge with top notch work. 1) Peak action with the split bat and backlit bat matter spraying everywhere. 2) Has good action in a difficult sport to cover because in lacrosse one never knows where on the field the action will take place. 3) the high jump benefits from a clean background so viewers can enjoy a peak action moment. Excellent work on the photographer's part to put themselves in the best place.
