Racquetball: Double Donut Studios | Racquetball Action Photography

Photos – 2005 Junior Nationals Galleries are Complete

All of the photos from the 2005 Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships have now been posted. From the 5500 shots in the original print gallery, I’ve narrowed down to the 1000 or so “best of the best”.

If anyone is still interested in prints of any of the photos, just use the contact link at the top of the page to send me an email. I just need the filenames you’re interested in (similar to B7AF1234.jpg in the gallery). Prints are now only offered on the 1000 shots in the current gallery.

Photos – 2005 Jr. Nationals

After several requests for photos, I’ve been spending some time re-processing the galleries from the 2005 USAR Junior Olympic Championships. I offered on-site and internet based prints for the parents and players during this event, and never took the time to go back through the 5000+ shots to officially post them to my gallery. Now they are ready :)

As I spent much time shooting action on every court at Multnomah Athletic Club, there are many shots not grouped by match. You’ll see albums for these “misc” shots for boys and girls, for each day of the event (coming soon).

I was able to determine the player’s names and divisions for most of the matches, but there are a few I still need help with before I post the whole event online. Can anyone help me identify the athletes and division for the following shots:

Draws are here to help ..

Match 1 – Boys 16 Doubles – Aldana / Rojas vs. Isley / Sledzik (thanks Adam)(below)

Match 2 – Taken Sunday during round robin play. I’m not sure of the players or division. G10 – Lavely def. Vargas (thanks Adam) (below)

Match 3 – Taken Sunday during the finals. Boy’s 12 – Lee def. Rojas (thanks!) (below)

Match 4 – Taken Wednesday. Not sure of players or division. B14 – John Sanderson vs. Brad Kirch (thanks Kelley!) (below)

Match 5 – Taken Wednesday. I’m not positive about the players or division. B12 – Diaz def. Schopieray (thanks Spidey) (below):

Match 6 – Mixed doubles on Wednesday. Not sure of players or division. X16D – Sharon Jackson / Gavin Bennett vs. Andrew Embry / Emily Melgaard (thanks Kelley!)

Match 7 – Taken Thursday. Not sure of players or division. (below)

Feel free to post any info in the comments!

Online Gallery Posting for Junior Nationals

Thank you everyone for your great support during Junior Nationals. Each day at the event, we have been working FEAVERISHLY to get the photos online for everyone to see. So far, we’ve taken about 5,000 photos and made them available onsite for viewing and ordering. We anticipate having the completed galleries ready Sunday evening soon after the event ends.

As I’ve mentioned to everyone I’ve talked with, the web sale I offered during the event will be extended beyond the tournament weekend. For the next two weeks, all web orders over $75 will receive a 20% discount.

Also, I’m going to need help identifying all the kids in the photos so I can sort them by name. This will help friends and family locate pictures of their players. I’m going to offer some free prints to people who can help me out, so check back for details.
