The only team that made it to the Championship game was the Kirtland Central Lady Broncos. I have always wondered about them being included in our coverage area, as they are only about three miles outside of the Farmington city limits. Still the sports editor here says we cover them , and if it helps us with sales then I am certainly not in any position to argue.
The game was pretty good, and I ended up with some decent action images from it. I got the focus issues of yesterday straightened out and my images looked pretty sharp and clean, even before running the Noise Ninja filter on them. It's amazing what something as simple as wiping down the electrical contacts on the lenses and inside the camera bodies can make.
