I was fortunate to spend the past weekend shooting the Oregon 4A Girls Basketball Championships at the University of Portland Chiles Center. It was a great opportunity. Lots of action...lots of good shots...and lots of misses. I learned a lot through the experience. Check out my SportsShooter member page for a few more shots. I'll post a few more shortly. Thanks goes out to SportsShooter member Craig Mitchelldyer, Valley Times Photographer Jamie Valdez and Valley Times Sports Editor Miles Vance for sharing their knowledge and insights.
Congratulations to Southridge High School's Girls Basketball Team on winning their first Oregon State High School Championship title.
