Game Camera

For last season's state high school baseball tournament, I filled in on the centerfield game camera for OC16 during the Division 2 quarterfinals. One of the schools playing that night, was Maryknoll, my alma mater. Fortunately, I got to see my team pull off a come-from-behind victory.

Carli Lloyd Interview

Carli Lloyd, from the US Soccer's Women's National Team, does an interview with Hawaii News Now prior to their practice at Aloha Stadium. The team was scheduled to play Trinidad & Tobago for an international friendly victory tour, after the team won the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. The night before the match, the USWNT called off the match over concerns over the quality of the artificial turf. 

The larger story turned to be how FIFA had women's soccer play their matches on artificial turfs while the men's teams play their matches on natural grass. The women are seeking equality to play all their matches on natural grass.
