Every spring the city of Gallup gets clobbered with strong winds. Some days we have 40+ MPH sustained winds, with gusts of 55 MPH or more. Today was like that, and still the tennis team tried to play. Photographing high school tennis around here is hard to begin with - most the the kids are not tennis players as their preferred sport, and they often don't have the fluid and powerful swings you see in the magazines and tournaments. Still, considering the way things stacked against them with the weather today it was amazing they even managed to get the ball over the net and still keep it on the court.
