MHS Basketball Tournament

edge
Another great MLK weekend basketball tournament. Moline really pulled off the last game with a come from behind win. Way to go Maroons. Check out some photos from today.

MHS Girls Tennis Sectionals

edgeIt was a blustery day and the girls played tough. I stopped by Moline High School and grabbed a few photos of Sectional Tennis. Even though the title says “Moline”, there are some photos of girls from Geneseo, Alleman, and Galesburg. Take a look!

MHS Football

edgeQuite the brisk night and Moline got off to a slow start falling behind 49-0 at the half. They did come back and scored 28 unanswered points in the second half. Made it a good showing .... great character. Here are a few photos of the game and photos of the homecoming court.

MHS Homecoming Parade

edgeThe annual Moline Homecoming parade was held in brisk conditions. The overcast sky did make for good lighting though. I captured quite a few. Take a look.

MHS Volleyball

edgeI finally made it to a Moline Volleyball game. This was a hard fought meet and Moline was in the first game at the end and way ahead in the second game. Unfortunately they lost both :-(. Take a look at some of the photos I captured.

MHS / Alleman Football

edgeIt was a heartbreaker for Moline. They dominated Alleman for most of the game, but somehow let them escape at the end. Check out the photos I captured.

Moline Girls Basketball

edge
A slightly abstract photo of the Moline High School Girls Basketball team charging down the court on a fast break. They played a hard game and came back from behind to almost pull it out in the end. Good game girls!!

I used the game to try out some new lighting and a remote camera. I now have four Strobelights (Canon 580EX), one at each corner of the field house, with extra battery packs, and triggered with Radiopopper PX’s. My main camera is a Canon 1DmkIV and I’m using a 50mm f1.4 lens for most shots. I’m typically shooting at 1/500th of a second shutter speed, f/2.8 aperture, ISO 1600 and using ETTL for the fill in flash. This game I also used Radiopopper JrX’s to remote fire a camera on the baseline. That is my new “travel camera”, a Canon SL1 that I set up with a 16mm lens on the floor under the basket. It uses the same 4 flashes as well and I was shooting at f/4 for a little more depth of field. There are a few good photos from here, but the flashes didn’t fire all the time ... still a few kinks to work out.

Take a look.

Moline Volleyball

edgeStopped by Wharton Field House this morning to grab a few photos of Moline Volleyball. Take a look.

Moline vs UTHS Homecoming Game

See my photos for shots of:
I hope you like them.

Moline Homecoming Parade

edgeI guess I must be getting old when I know as many of the drivers in the parade as I do the kids …
Moline had their Homecoming Parade this afternoon and the whole town came out. Here are a few photos.

Moline vs Alleman Football

edgeIt was a beautiful night in Augustana’s new stadium as Moline took on Alleman. Or should I say Alleman took it to Moline? I did get a few photos … check ‘em out.

Moline High School Football! This is one of the few moments of celebration from Friday's game as the Maroon's just recovered a fumble. I uploaded a ton of photos. Enjoy!

Regional - Moline vs Rocky

edgeMoline advanced to the second round of the Regional Playoffs to meet Big 6 Champion Rocky. As you can tell from the photo above, it was a pretty physical game. Here are a few photos of the evening.

Regionals - Moline vs UTHS BBall

edgeThe scoreboard is a little confusing as Moline is the home team and UTHS are the visitors in this first Regional Playoff game. So … as the cheerleaders and students celebrate the score is 50 to 47 Moline over UTHS with 20.1 seconds left to play. Moline came out victorious in this very competitive, exciting game. As a result Moline advances to play Big 6 champion Rocky next … now postponed to 2/27/2013. Here are a few photos of the Moline / UTHS battle.

Moline vs UTHS Basketball - Senior Night

edgeIt was Senior Night at Wharton Field House for the Moline vs UTHS Basketball game. And … ofllowing the theme, it was “Senior Citizens” Night for the SuperFans!

Browse through my photos of the game, cheerleaders, and seniors and their parents.

Moline vs Rocky Basketball

edgeThe Moline Maroons take the floor of Wharton Field House to take on Rocky. Moline was dominating for most of the game although they somehow let Rocky tie it up in regulation and go on to win it in overtime. It was a heartbreaker for the Moline crowd, but it was a great game. Here are a few photos.

Moline vs Alleman Basketball

edgeOne of my favorite basketball photos of the year …
Moline takes on Alleman at Wharton Field House. I also captured a few shots of the Dance performance at half time and a few cheerleaders. I hope you enjoy these.

Moline MLK Tournament

edgeMoline is hosting the Martin Luther King Tournament this weekend at Wharton Field House. Here are a few photos of Saturday’s games. And … a few photos of Monday’s games.

Moline vs Rocky Basketball

edgeFriday Night Basketball in the Quad Cities. Moline takes on Rocky at Rock Island. The Sophomore game was a great game with many lead changes and was decided by a basket as Rocky came out ahead. Rocky dominated the Varsity game. Still, a fun evening and an opportunity for a few action shots. Check ‘em out.

MHS Freshman Basketball

edgeMy friend Ricky is coaching the Moline High School freshman Basketball team, so I thought I’d stop out and take some photos of tonight’s game. They pretty much dominated the game and I came home with a few keepers … I think. Here’s a few shots of the evening.

Moline Football Homecoming

edgeJared Requet makes a good gain early in the Moline High School Homecoming Football game Friday night. Moline scored on their opening drive and then had some challenges until late in the game. They almost pulled it out. Here are some photos of the evening.

Moline Homecoming Parade

edgeThe Moline Homecoming parade winds it’s way down 23rd Avenue (oops, I mean Avenue of the Cities). The highlights include the kids, bands, board members, and of course Ray’z Barber Shop VW Microbus. Here are a few of the photos I captured.

Moline Maroon Football

edgeThe Moline Maroons took on the Dunbar Mighty Men and dominated in both the Sophomore and Varsity contests. While the Sophomores had the offense going from the beginning, the Varsity turned a 1st half defensive struggle into a second half offensive display. Unfortunately the reporter from channel 4 missed all the action as he had to leave to make deadline by 9:10 PM.

The highlight of the evening were the Superfans … they were Off The Hook.

Here are a few photos of the evening.
