These two local schools always seem to battle for the State Championship in volleyball. County was the state champ in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007. Valley won in 2004, 2002, 2001.
Last night they met up in the Regional Quarterfinal. My neighbor's daughter is on the team, so I though I'd try VB one more time.
It's always a humbling experience. Still has to be my most challenging sport to capture... crowded court, fast action, tons of obstructions, limited shooting positions, the players always seem to be facing the wrong direction, AF always seems to lock onto the net, and of course, dim lighting.
This gym has an elevated platform in one corner. For giggles, I brought my 600/4L and tried a few shots, but it wasn't high enough to give a view of the opposite court over the net. I got a few shots, but did better switching to the 200/1.8L with 1.x4 TC. After the first set, I moved down to my usual spot... sitting on the floor next to the scorer's table with just a 85/1.8 (although I did try the 200/1.8 from the floor too).
