I am very excited to have one of my photos on the cover of the July 2013 issue of Inside Lacrosse magazine. The won the 2013 NCAA national championship and the photo used is them celebrating after coming back to the locker room. Thanks for the players and staff for letting me to their lives for the weekend. 

There are more photos inside the magazine from the weekend.

During the 2009-10 basketball season I was hired by NC State’s Alumni Association to work with them on a behind-the-scenes story on Kellie Harper, the university’s new head women’s basketball coach. I was given amazing access to the team both on and off the court during this story. 

Yesterday it was announced that Coach Harper would not return for the 2013-14 season. I was sadden to hear that as I had so much fun working for her. She was full of life and such a fierce competitor. She was really kind to me and the writer, Cherry Crayton, as we worked on this story.

More photos posted here. The text from Cherry’s articles are here.
