Fredonia University "Blackhorse" Women's RFC (red uniforms) hosted SUNY Geneseo "Warthogs" RFC on an emotion-filled Saturday. One of the Fredonia players passed on last month due to a lingering illness. Shortly before the game we held a ceremonial burial of an autographed rugby ball under our pitch. The ceremony was attended by fans, friends, family, and our competitors from Geneseo. We will all miss our friend Lauren "Cups" Pronto. She loved her teammates, her school, and her sport (she was buried in her rugby social jersey). The gals wore something pink (Lauren's favorite color) or purple (signifying the medical research done for her disease). Final was Blackhorse 14 Warthogs 7.

I screwed up most of the pictures. I shot the ceremony at 1/640 sec and didn't think to reset to much faster SS until late in the game...so there's some motion blur in many of them. Ah well. Of course C&C appreciated.

D300s, Manual mode, Center-weighted, Auto ISO, 80-200mm 1:2.8D

Cheers,
Dave
