uphill battle

By jackieo
......the gal with the ball was the star player on the team I was following for a newspaper. I've taken many shots of her jumping to shoot, but never with the stress on her face that's seen here. Her team was behind at this point, late in the game, and it was a very important tournament !
The paper used this shot on the front page with the headline : "A valiant effort..." because alas, the team lost that game. They did very well up to that point, only losing one game all season, until this tournament.
It was a blast shooting them !
