The KHSAA Boys Sweet Sixteen is one of my favorite annual events and I know I’m not alone. It’s as high of an energy atmosphere as you can get. From a photographer’s standpoint, it’s a golden opportunity filled with great action, and tons of emotion. It’s also a good chance to see a variety of schools all in one place. The basketball is great, but I prefer to focus on the students, teachers and bands that come to support their classmates.
This year I photographed two games during the quarterfinal rounds at Rupp Arena in Lexington; Madison Central High School against Holmes High School (Covington Independent) and Graves County High School against Hopkinsville High School (Christian County).
