It’s always fun to photograph state championship games – the best teams, crazy fans and emotions running high.  A few weeks ago, I traveled to Mohegan Sun to see the Laurelton Hall girls team beat South Windsor and the Bridgeport boys team come from behind to upset number one seed Fairfield Prep.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day.
