While many high school athletes have returned their uniforms and perhaps already participated in 2012 commencement services, a few select teams continue to forge ahead in PIAA state tournaments this week. Central Bucks South Softball is one of those hard-working and talented teams currently enjoying an extended 2012 post-season, and our world of professional image-making caught up with the Titans for a portion of their schedule recently.
First up is one of our HD WebShows containing image highlights from two post-season games: the first being a PIAA District One play-off game vs. North Penn on May 26th; and the second game is last week’s PIAA State Tournament quarter-final game against St. Hubert’s on June 7th, where the Titans’ victory earned them a spot in one of the state tournament’s semi-final games on Monday, June 11th. So turn up the volume, and enjoy our exclusive brand of game-time photography featuring up-close action images and game-action “sports portraiture” — all set to music, David-Nicholas style. Enjoy!!!
Second up is another HD WebShow featuring the District One “3rd Place” game against the Pennsbury Falcons on May 31st, where the Titans defeated the Falcons 9-1. To a large degree, we chose to photograph that game because it was a somewhat “low stress” game for both teams, and it gave us a chance to capture some great “sports portraits” in about as relaxed a competitive environment as we might encounter. True, both teams were certainly playing to win — no question. But the loser of that game still held a secure spot in the upcoming PIAA state tournament.
Well, hopefully both teams learned lots about each other from that game, because — through the fate of the State tournament bracket — the Titans and Falcons will find themselves competing once again on Monday, June 11th. And this time, the energy level promises to be far from relaxed, as only one of these two teams earns the right to extend their post-season one more game on a big road-trip to the PIAA State Softball Championship Final set for Friday, June 15th at Penn State University’s Nittany Lion Softball Park.
So once again… turn up the volume, and catch a sneak-preview of “Who’s Who” for both teams participating in Monday’s semi-final game. Enjoy!!!
Naturally, you’ll want to check back here for another HD WebShow featuring game-action highlights of Monday’s C.B. South vs. Pennsbury semi-final game. Stay tuned…
Note: For softball fans watching the lower portion of the state tournament bracket as well, Bishop Shanahan and Canon McMillan will compete at Carlisle High School in the other PIAA softball tournament semi-final on Monday. So it’s quite possible that two District One schools could compete in this year’s PIAA Championship Softball Final.
