It's Wrestling Season!!!!

After finishing their last game again James Monroe, Derrick immediately took the mat to begin his winter season in wrestling. Taking third in the state last spring at 215lbs, he is starting off his season ranked first in the state!!! In his first tournament in Morristown this past Saturday, Weir High senior Derrick Rovira won the 215-pound weight class at the Doan Ford Invitational by defeating Shadyside’s Brian Kahl. You are off to good start....proud of you!!!

Concord Minutemen vs Mt. Diablo (last game of the season)

Yes, I'm back posting...behind as usual, but just wanted to say congratulations to the Concord High Minutemen football team for a season well deserved. You guys worked hard and wish you all the best!! The team ended their season on November 14th with a win against Mt. Diablo 26-20. I had the honor to meet up with a fellow football mom and inspiring photographer, Nancy Porfirio, to give her a few pointers on camera settings, using Lightroom and was great fun shooting a mid November football game in warm weather....this win gave the Minutemen a playoff birth. They played Friday, November 21st, 7:00PM: 1st Round NCS Game v. Casa Grande @ Casa Grande...and lost:(
Thank you, Nancy!!!
