2015 NIAA Northern Region Division 1 Championships

The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (The NIAA…) held the Northern Nevada Regional Championships at Carson High this week…

On the girls side, both League Champions faced off tonight, Reno vs. Bishop Manogue.  Reno didn’t seem to be able to match up well with Manogue’s pace and press and fell behind early and Manogue never looked back and cruised to a Regional Championship!

Congratulation Girls!  Good Luck in Vegas next week!150221_4639

This is how Manogue dealt with Mallory McGwire… shoot over her before she can approach for the block… I’d guess Mallory holds some shot block record if someone was keeping track, she’s a wicked shot block force in the middle!

 

LOVE the crowd!  What a great atmosphere tonight!150221_4556The boys game tipped off 45 minutes later than scheduled… multiple factors… First was the TV crew… the whole world revolves around TV you know… 🙂  The second and probably larger factor… there were so many people inside that they had to start turning people away that were waiting in line outside… the place was PACKED!!

The two teams that tied for first in the Sierra League were back on the floor tonight, Carson got the 1st place nod due to the tie break but Galena came in with something to prove and very quickly showed that.  Galena’s outside shooting game early in the first quarter was probably the nail in the coffin for Carson.  Galena jumped out to and early lead and Carson tried to claw back but the deficit was too great and couldn’t manage.  Galena will be headed to Vegas next week for the State Championships.

Congratulations and good luck in Vegas boys!

Shots like these helped Galena to the Championship!  Look at the crowd!!  Truly Awesome!150221_4714 150221_4718

2014 NIAA Northern Region Semifinal Football, Carson vs. Reno

I mentioned to someone today that I’m seeing a fire in the belly of these boys that I’ve not seen during my previous six years shooting Carson High Football…

Carson has given up 19 points in FIVE games, all of which were first team offense (opponents) against second team defense… 7 against Douglas, 6 against McQueen and 6 against Reno tonight… October 17th was the last points the first team defense gave up points… against Manogue… They’re on a roll to say the least!

I felt before the game that tonight would be another lopsided score… a lot of nervous parents around, wondering if it would be a close game… NOPE!  Carson got off to a fast start and coasted to the Regional Championship next weekend against Reed.

Here are some photos from the night.
