It was really fun to see the McMaster University Marauders having some playful fun at Midnight Madness. Although the slam-dunk contest is what initially drew me to the event, the festivities were entertaining. It was like a big pep rally to celebrate the McMaster Marauders athletes who all came out to support. The Mac Football team w'hooping it up, arrived early to ensure front row seats. I notice many athletes that I photograph assist with ticket sales (Men's Volleyball-Austin Campion-Smith)and other tasks. The Marching Band, Verve Dance Team, Cheerleaders and Spirit Boosters energize Burridge Gym. There are many great athletes/teams who are doing well at McMaster and I enjoyed feeling the camaraderie. I'm looking forward to photographing a promising Men's and Women's Basketball season.
Some of the highlights were the Slam Dunk Contest-Rohan Boney | Taylor Black, Skills Competition-Katie Knight, 3 Point Shootout-Joe Rocca, All Star Game and the extreme talent of Jus Fly.
