Bearkats take down Houston 5-4

You could not have asked for a nicer evening for baseball, it was warm and clear, and of course a fun close game with the Kats on top. For baseball fans, it just doesn’t get any better than this. Right fielder Jake Arrington even came away with a home run in the seventh inning making his third for the season.

NCAA Quarterfinals, SHSU vs MSU

Yesterday was a heck of a game with #1 ranked Sam Houston State University pitted against Montana State University who just came off a 48-10 victory in the NCAA quarterfinals. MSU started out strong, and no wonder with their reported 750 fans in the stands. Unfortunately, like a steam roller, SHSU built up power and just overwhelmed them on both offense and defense. Taking the game home with a 49 to 13 victory the Kats of SHSU rushed over 400 yards including six touchdowns.

SHSU vs Central Arkansas

Last night’s game while a little one sided with SHSU dominating UCA 31-10, was at least very cool compared to the weather last week which made the game that much more enjoyable. UCA did get us a little worried in the first half with a nice pass for a 73 yard touchdown, but SHSU recovered quickly and led the entire game.

SHSU vs Western Illinois

Football season is back and the Kats started it with style by defeating Western Illinois Thursday evening. This was a defensive game with both sides scrambling to gain just a few yards at a time. Even with our record heat and no significant rain for months, the night was reasonably cool enough to really enjoy the season opener.

Michael Johnson/Dr Pepper Classic Track & Field

This weekend was full of running, jumping, and throwing. I traveled to Waco to shoot the annual tournament for SHSU SID and aside from the sunburn and complete exhaustion after nine hours of shooting and over four hours of driving, it was a blast. Note the three pictures of the little mishap, she was unharmed except for her pride.

Baseball is BACK! Three games in two days, boy am I tired!

One game Friday night, two on Sunday, and the Kats Baseball team is back in action! And action there was!

Texas A&M vs Baylor Hockey

Not one of my usual sports but other than the horrible lighting, it was a lot of fun. Texas A&M showed no mercy with a 10-2 victory making their way to state for the second year in a row. If you have never seen ice hockey before, you should check it out. Boy is it fast!

SPC Swimming And Diving Championships 2011

Swimming is a very difficult sport to shoot. Not only is it fast, and wet, but the water is always between you and your subject’s face. On the other hand, it makes for some fantastic images!
