Photos From The 2016 Girls Wisconsin State Basketball Championships • Wisconsin Sports Photographer

I only shoot high school basketball once a year so when I do it I like to overdose on it. Here are my favorite photos for the 2016 Wisconsin Girls State Basketball Championships at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  I shot 15 games in three days.  I always enjoy shooting this tournament because of the display of raw emotion.  At the end of a hard fought NFL football game the players shake hands and its seems like most of them don’t even care if they won or lost.  It’s just another day at the office for them.  When these girls walk off that court they are wearing their emotions on their sleeves.   

Here are some of my favorite photos from the tournament.

Thanks for looking!
