Today’s photo is the first in a se­ries from the 2010 NCAA Div. III Wrestling Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 5 and 6, 2010. I was hired by Augs­burg Col­lege, Con­cor­dia Moor­head and St. Olaf Col­lege to shoot the event.

Here is the Augs­burg team lined up be­fore the night ses­sion of Day 1.

The Augs­burg Col­lege Wrestling team lis­tens to the Na­tional An­them be­fore Ses­sion II of the NCAA Div. III Wrestling Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 5, 2010. Augs­burg won their 11th team ti­tle the next day.

From left to right: Andy Witzel, Jared Massey, Zach Moli­tor, Or­lando Ponce, Ja­son Adams, Tony Valek and Paul Bjork­strand. Not pic­tured: Josh Roberts, Mark Matzek.

Un­like most the the pho­tos I post here, I have edited this one quite a bit with the burn and dodge brushes, so no ed­i­to­r­ial uses of this photo. Of course, I still have the RAW file. I did no­tice that the flag has been over­burned — es­pe­cially in the web sized file — but that can be worked around, or bet­ter yet, the edit­ing can be redone.

Tech specs:

Canon 30D + 17-85mm f/4–5.6 IS. f/40 at f/5.6. ISO 1600.

Augsburg celebrates Six Decades of Dominance

On Jan­u­ary 22, 2010, the Augs­burg Col­lege wrestling pro­gram cel­e­brated “Six Decades of Dom­i­nance,” mark­ing the six­ti­eth an­niver­sary of the program’s found­ing in 1949 by Edor Nel­son and Oliver Dahl. Be­fore the sched­uled meet with the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska at Om­aha — the num­ber one team in Di­vi­sion II — the pro­gram held a short cel­e­bra­tion with a pre­sen­ta­tion of the wrestling team’s his­tory. Augs­burg — the num­ber one team in Di­vi­sion III — de­feated UNO 18–12. Af­ter the meet, an­other gath­er­ing was held at Sgt. Preston’s bar, but I didn’t shoot that. (more…)
