State Champs

Hartsville won the second game out of three and clinched the State 4A Championship in baseball last night against North Augusta 6-0. You see these guys work so hard all year and it comes to the last game, somebody wins and somebody loses, simple as that. I try to stay unbiased while I'm photographing an event such as this but its hard for me because I've lived here for nearly 20 years and NA is my team. During my time working for the paper, I've seen the highs and the lows of these young men and women during various sporting events and they always show good sportsmanship even in a crushing defeat. After the game, I listened to the coach's speech to his players, and all I'll say is he's a good man and I'd play for him any day.
