I Finally Saw the Lights of Friday Night!

I had yet to be able to attend a football game this season...until tonight. I was determined to attend tonight's game against Canyon High. It was a long day and I wasn't sure how long I'd feel like staying but I really wanted to go anyway. Heather's ankle kept her from performing the kick routine with her dance team, but she did march with the band. She was in pain afterward and had to ice her ankle but she does seem to be getting better.

I'm the field photographer for the dance team and as such have the privelege of being out on the sidelines for the half time show to take pictures. While I'm there, I usually grab as many shots of Heather marching with the band as I can before the dancers take the field and I turn my focus on them.

Sadly, Matadors lost tonight's game but there were still some exciting plays in the game.

Before the game, Marty and I met Heather and her friends at Chili's for dinner:
Ryan, Heather, Megan, Tiffany, and Matt.

Heather is always easy to spot in the band, marching in her dance uniform.

The Starsteppers Dance Team performing their kick routine--sans Heather :0(

I decided to try out my zoom lens from my seat way above the 50-yard line and capture a few shots of the football game.

Heather's friend Ryan is the school mascot. He does a great job!!!

Maybe next time, Matadors!

It's good to see you posting again! Wow, you have great lighting at your football stadium. I tried to take a few photos at our first home game and after the sun went down, the photos were terrible. Hope Heather is back to dancing soon!

I hope Heather's ankle will get better soon! I know it's very frustrating for her, but at least this isn't her senior year! I always feel bad for the athletes who get an injury their senior year and end up sitting out most of it.
