MAC Volleyball Championship

MAC Volleyball Championship

Last weekend Ohio University hosted the Mid-American Conference Volleyball Championship at the Convocation Center here in Athens, Ohio. 12 teams battled it out over the course of four days and seven games for the MAC Championship title. The opportunity to shoot action-packed and emotional volleyball was something I could not pass up. I probably spent more time shooting volleyball that week than I did in my room or class! The first games started at 5:30pm so I arrived around 4:00pm to set up my remote camera, turn on the strobes in the catwalk, set up my camera and laptop and make sure everything was running smoothly. I shot several of the games for the MAC and the Ohio games for my job with Ohio Athletics.

On Sunday, November 22, Ohio won 3-0 over Northern Illinois University and took the MAC Championship. I had a great time covering the team this season and was glad to see their hard work pay off by winning the championship. Here are some of my favorites images!
