Keeping track of FCHS sports
Track action at Eastern Montgomery High School Wednesday afternoon as Floyd County’s varsity competed against EastMont, Giles and Narrows.
Keeping track of all the action is often a challenge with high jump, triple jump, shot put and discus action on another part of the athletic complex — and away from the running and hurdle events.
While the greatest challenge comes for the young athletes competing against each other, it can also task a 66-year-old photographer trying to get from one event to the other on a reconstructed leg to make sure he catches each of the talented athletes in action.
For us older photographers, it’s often a hit or miss situation.
