Full coverage | Softball vs. St. Kate’s

Softball sweeps St. Kate’s in doubleheader, captures 30th win.

A good game played by the Tommie women! I absolutely loved taking pictures during the golden hour for this story.

The Locker Room | Tennis

The Locker Room with Terry Peck – April 5, 2012.

My second-ever and last Locker Room. This time I interviewed tennis coach Terry Peck and leading players Dan Cooper and Rachel Wright.

Video package | Varsity crew team

St. Thomas varsity crew team rows into spring season.

This video package was probably the most adventurous story I have undertaken for TommieMedia. Since I was still learning video (and was shooting it with a DSLR for the first time), our video editor Katherine Curtis came along with me. We braved wind, rain, and a very early morning to get these shots, but I was really happy with the way it turned out! I also designed the above rotator for my package.

Video package | Tommie Spotlight

Tommie Spotlight: Sarah Smith.

Even though my first video experience was shooting b-roll for the Locker Room, this one was my first video package! Tommie Spotlight is a feature TommieMedia does to highlight student athletes, and for this one, it was senior and basketball center player Sarah Smith. I actually knew her before this story was assigned – she’s a sweetheart.

The Locker Room | Swimming

The Locker Room with Tom Hodgson – March 1, 2012.

This was my first time ever hosting the Locker Room, a sports talk show where TommieMedia brings in coaches and players to talk about the season and upcoming games/meets. I got to interview swim coach Tom Hodgson and high achievers Emily Punyko and Sam Rauchwarter. It was also my first time using a real camera (and not just a flip cam) to shoot b-roll (the footage of the swimmers in this segment)! I was happy to finally try my hand at that.

Full coverage | M. basketball vs. Bethel

Deberg, Nord lead men’s basketball team to MIAC title game.

Another win for the Tommie men, who were D3 national champs last year!

Full coverage | Hosting Special Olympics

St. Thomas to host Special Olympics Minnesota this spring.

St. Thomas hosted the organization’s spring games for the first time in spring history! The last time we had hosted Special Olympics Minnesota was for its summer games over 10 years ago.

Full coverage | Diving Invitational

Two divers clinch first-place finishes at St. Thomas Diving Invitational.

The St. Thomas diving team is small, but strong! Diving is one of the more fun sports to photograph, in my opinion.

Full coverage | M. hockey vs. St. Olaf

Vannelli’s OT goal leads men’s hockey team over St. Olaf.

Ironically, a men’s hockey game against St. Olaf was the first sports slideshow I ever did for TommieMedia, last year. This year, the game once again went into overtime, but we ended up winning instead of tying. I also had to write the story this time instead of just focusing on pictures. Although I know almost nothing about hockey, I think I pulled it off!

Full coverage | Swimming Meet of Saints

Men’s swimming places first, women take third at Meet of Saints.

First rule for covering a swim meet: wear layers. I found that out the hard way. This was the first swim meet I’d ever been to, but coverage went smoothly. Swimming pictures are probably some of the hardest sports photos to take – you end up shooting 20 frames to get just one that you can use. Take a look at my story to see how I did for my first time around!
