On Friday night I traveled to Indianapolis to photograph former Chillicothe IVC High School standout Zach McAllister pitch against the Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field. Zach pitched a complete game as his Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees won 7-4. His current stats are 4-2 with a 4.03 ERA in 58 innings pitched. There were 26 of his friends and family on hand to cheer him on. It is just a matter of time when he gets the call to go to The Show. Zach was a 3rd round pick in the 2006 MLB June Amateur Draft.

I was in Normal, IL at Illinois State University over the weekend covering the MVC track & field championships.  Southern Illinois University captured the Women’s title while Wichita State University won the Men’s title. Bradley University junior Mary Goldkamp became the first Brave in program history to win the women’s 1,500 meter title, out-kicking Wichita State’s Tonya Nero on the final lap. Her winning time was 4:27.67. It was tough going thru the 1,500+ images to post a few of favorites. These young men & women put everything they had in each and every event.

Bradley University Women’s Softball team and  Men’s Baseball team showed there support for Breast Cancer awareness by playing in special pink t-shirts and jerseys. President Joanne Glasser was on hand for both games and threw out the first pitch prior to each game.

Proceeds from the Komen Race for the Cure Series fund both national research efforts and local breast health education and breast cancer out-reach programs.  A majority of the net proceeds fund community projects related to breast health education, screening and treatment and are based on the specific needs of each community as determined by local Komen for the Cure Affiliates.  (75% of Susan G. Komen Peoria Race for the Cure® dollars supports awareness, education, screening and treatment services in the Central Illinois area and 25% helps fund the national grant program.)

The Peoria Memorial Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® holds two distinctions that no other Komen Affiliate can claim.  They host the second oldest Race in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series – celebrating their 25th Anniversary in 2010 – and Peoria is hometown of Suzy and Nancy. Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister Susan that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer.
