Last Friday night I caught an exciting volleyball match between Sonoma State and Chico State at Chico. It was a close contest, but Chico State eventually prevailed 25-22, 27-29, 25-21, 25-22. The following night Chico State defeated San Francisco State to remain the only undefeated CCAA (California Collegiate Athletic Association) team.

All shots were taken with a D700 + 80-200 f/2.8. Exposure was manually set a 1/500, f/3.5, and ISO 8000.

Comments are encouraged.


1. As usual, outside hitter #14, here pictured spiking the ball, was the big gun in the Chico State attack. She had 17 kills. The next night against San Francisco State she had 16 kills. On Monday she was named the CCAA volleyball player of the week. Her last name is Shurtz, and I'm sure that to her opponents Shurtz hurts!

This shot and the two following were taken while sitting on the floor near the sidelines.
