    The visiting Queens Golden Gaels took on the University of Western Ontario Mustangs today (well, yesterday technically) in both women's and men's volleyball. I shot the women's game as well, but the men's was much more dramatic and had the better shots, so here they are!

    #1 - UWO vs. Queens (3-2)

    I love #2 where he is hitting through that block. #11 also, like the emotion. This has gotten me excited since I start league play on Thursday. Thanks!

    Lots of good captures here: the concentration on the players' faces, the height the players can jump to block and serve, and the raw emotion on that players face after taking the lead over the opposing team. And I love that sequence shot of Eric Simon serving!

    Thanks, LB. Everything was shot with a 17-85, so pretty close ;)

    Great shots. I played in college myself. Just for reference that net is aprox. 8'. So when those guys are getting there bellybuttons up to the top of the tape (pic #2)... that's quite the vertical. I estimate that Matthew Gibson in pic #2 has about a 28"-36" vertical.
