Bremen girl’s track sectional

I rarely cover track and field. Tuesday might have been only my third or fourth high school track meet ever. I’m usually not a fan because the meets often lack numbers that correspond to a roster, making it hard to tell who is who. However, this one – a sectional – didn’t, freeing me up to shoot a larger variety of events than I normally would. Since I haven’t shot it much, I’m not the greatest at it, but it was nice to get out of the big city to go play with some good evening light.
