1st This is probably something that happens every year at the state championships, but we all loved the moment of joy along with the faces and peak splash. 2nd Another great peak moment after the big win. When a picture makes you feel something... well, you know the rest. 3rd Not usually ones to applaud net-cutting images, but the humor of the player's facial expression and thoughtful composition made this one too good not to award.
