C.B. South Softball: Titans To Play for PIAA 2012 Class AAAA Softball Crown

By the end of the first inning, softball fans knew that the Pennsbury Falcons had their work cut out for them in Monday’s PIAA 2012 Class AAAA semi-final against Central Bucks South, if they wanted to avoid a repeat of the prior contest where the Titans handily defeated the Falcons 9-1 just 11 days prior. But the Titans came prepared again — both offensively and defensively — to deny the Falcons even the slightest glimpse of advancing to today’s championship game in State College, PA. The Titans overpowered the Falcons 7-0, and Titans ace Haileigh Stocks pitched just one walk shy of a perfect game while also belting a two-run homer that sailed well beyond the center field fence to add insurance runs to the Titan’s unchallenged lead.

Yes, it was a good day for C.B. South fans at Spring Ford last Monday. And today, we wish the Titans all our best as they head to State College, where they’ll compete with District One runner-up Bishop Shanahan for this year’s PIAA Class AAAA Softball Crown. Quite frankly, if both teams perform as they have been up through the semi-finals, this should be one fabulous championship softball game!

Meanwhile, let’s turn back the clock a few days and enjoy a still-image video recap of last Monday’s semi-final contest with our exclusive game-action images and multi-media HD WebShow, David-Nicholas style. Enjoy… and be inspired!!!

As a reminder to everyone visiting our website, all of the images used in our multi-media HD WebShows are also available for viewing at your own pace in the online proofing gallery section of our website. Click this link to go directly to the C.B. South Softball online image galleries.

[*** Championship Game UPDATE *** C.B. South defeated Bishop Shanahan 1-0 in nine innings, securing the PIAA Class AAAA Softball Crown for 2012. Congratulations, ladies!!!]

C.B. South Softball: Titans Enjoying an Extended 2012 Post-Season

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.

PIAA 2011 Post-Season Football: Titans Extend Their Season with An Opening Round Tournament Win Over Colonials

This year’s PIAA Quad-A Football Tournament is shaping up to be an interesting mix of teams. But don’t ask District One teams to give too much thought to their seeding ranks though… ‘Cause in the tournament’s 8 District One opening round match-ups, SIX of the lower-seeded teams advanced to Round #2! And you can count the Titans of Central Bucks South in that group, as the Titans (#13-seed) claimed a decisive 52-24 victory over the Colonials of Plymouth Whitemarsh (#4-seed) last Friday evening.

Our HD WebShow features LOTS of great Titan highlights from the evening — set to one of our favorite music tracks for action sports images. So turn up the volume, and enjoy exclusive game-action highlights the way they were intended to be viewed… David-Nicholas style!

Don’t forget to visit our online proofing galleries, where we’ve posted these and other images in the PIAA 2011 Post-Season Football Playoffs Album for you to browse at your leisure. Enjoy… and if you see some images that call your name, let us know!!! We have some fabulous ideas to help commemorate a great season — especially for Class of 2012 Seniors!!!

Stay tuned for our Post-Season round #2 coverage of the Titans, when they take on Garnet Valley (#5-seed) at Garnet Valley on Friday, November 18th.

CBE Lacrosse: 2011 Marks 2nd Time in 5 Years That Patriots Advance to PIAA State Semi-Finals for Mens LAX

It’s only natural for a team to feel a sense of disappointment when they don’t come up on the winning side of the final score, which is what happened to the Patriots this past Tuesday afternoon at the hands of defending state champion Conestoga. But in retrospect, 2011 marked the 2nd time in five years that the C.B. East Mens LAX program has advanced to the PIAA state semi-final level, an accomplishment that should leave this year’s team feeling extremely proud. Our final HD WebShow this season for C.B. East LAX highlights the terrific effort put forth by this year’s Patriots team going up against Conestoga, one of the top-ranked high school LAX teams in the country. Enjoy, Patriot fans!!!

As always, individual images in the WebShow have also been posted to our online galleries under C.B. East Mens LAX 2011 Season. And families interested in viewing this year’s LAX WebShows on wide-screen, home-theatre TVs are most welcome to contact the studio for a set of DVDs. If you’ve enjoyed the WebShows here on the small-screen, you’ll be truly impressed when viewing our close-up images on the big-screen set to music in a home-theatre environment!

We at David Nicholas Photography & Design have enjoyed capturing some great Patriot moments during the 2011 season, and we extend our best wishes to this year’s senior Patriots in all their post-graduation plans!

PIAA Eastern PA Football: La Salle Outlasts North Penn 38-35 in AAAA State Semifinal

An estimated crowd of over 3,000 attended Saturday’s PIAA 2010 AAAA-class Football Semifinal at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, where North Penn and La Salle varsity football teams pummeled each other endlessly — exchanging the game’s lead for a PIAA record-breaking 7 times. After 48 minutes of truly championship-level high school football by both teams, La Salle outlasted North Penn by a final score of 38-35. The Explorers will now travel to Hershey on December 18th for a well-earned chance at defending their state title.

We’ve chosen 100 images for this week’s WebShow recap, which features a combination of tight, close-up action images along with game-time “sports portraits” of team members from both sides. It’s a great way to re-live the emotional intensity of the game, David-Nicholas style! So sit back and enjoy!!!

We’ve also posted over 250 game-time images — including several complete action sequence sets — in our online proofing galleries, so visitors can browse still-image highlights of the game at their own pace. Last Saturday’s game will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come by all who attended. It was simply that kind of game — in a class all to it’s own. And we’re proud to have captured key moments of it!
