My latest photos for The Glengarry News

It was a busy sports week for The Glengarry News, as I shot reams of photos, including images of junior boys high school basketball, senior boys high school basketball, peewee girls hockey, and junior ‘B’ hockey.

These galleries, along with my past ones, can be viewed online here. All photos are owned by The Glengarry News. Reprints are available for purchase from the newspaper.

High school soccer makes for a busy spring

The local high school soccer season recently concluded, with the top result turned in by the Glengarry DHS Gaels junior squad, which won the EOSSAA championship. The achievement came a week after winning their league (SD&G) title.

The senior Gaels were also league champs, going on the be EOSSAA runners-up.

Le Relais’ senior girls team took silver at EOSSAA.

The spring season is a hectic, fast-moving one that somehow manages to squeeze 10+ matches into just three weeks. This year, we have no local clubs advancing to OFSAA.

We are very fortunate to have a number of volunteers throughout the county who organize charitable sports events, including hockey tournaments.

Recently, one such event took place in Maxville, the annual AJK Highland Travellers Hockey Tournament. The event raised funds in support of the work of the local branch of the Cancer Society.

I wrote a story about this tourney for The Glengarry News. A photo gallery is available online here.

Just this weekend, we had two more hockey tournament fundraisers, both outdoors.

Kudos to all who do such great work for our communities!
