Volleyball earned SOU 73 points with a 5th place finish

Unfortunately, SOU has little chance of ever winning the NAIA Directors’ Cup for an entire year given the way the points are calculated. Standings are based on a school’s best 13 teams. The points are not weighted for things like number of sports or number of teams competing in a given sport. Therefore, schools with more teams and more teams in lower-participation sports (golf, tennis, swimming, cheer, dance, etc.) will score higher when all is said and done. If proper weighting was done (more points for higher-participation sports like softball and volleyball–there are over 220 volleyball teams in the NAIA but only 29 schools participating in swimming so if a school comes in 5th place in volleyball (like SOU did) they’ll score only half as many points as a school that comes in 5th place in both men’s and women’s swimming) and final points were divided by the number of teams that competed, Southern Oregon probably would have come in at #1 in each of the past four or five years. No team that has ranked higher than SOU in the final standings has only 13 teams (like SOU does). Most have 17 or more teams so they get to drop their lowest four or more teams a year. Last year’s winner, for instance, had 17 teams. The runner up had 22 teams!

Welcome to installment #28 in “The Whole Picture” in which I present the uncropped, higher resolution version of photos that SOURaiders.com have published. For prior editions click here. For higher resolution click on the photo before saving. As always, photos are best viewed on a big screen rather than a tiny phone screen.

Some of you may have found your way here through the link on souraiders.com. I have had several people email me asking questions about buying prints or about finding all of my photos for a certain sport.

The photos I post here are a small fraction of the photos I actually have. If you would like to print any of the photos on Ashland Daily Photo, you are welcome to do so at no charge. Be sure to click on the photo to get to the higher resolution size which will print with more quality. If you want to use them on the web (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), you are welcome to do so if you link back to traveljapanblog.com/ashland in the description of the photo. If you are using the photo in a newspaper or magazine, please credit “Al Case, Ashland Daily Photo”.

If you would like me to search through all of my photos and send you photos of the particular athlete you are looking for I charge a reasonable fee for the time it takes me to find all of those photos and to process them for you. I do not normally sell prints. I email you the high quality electronic files in .jpg format, and you can do the printing and framing yourself through a local or online service. My email is on this page or you can comment (leave a reply) to a recent blog entry to communicate.

@SOURaiders @RaiderVB @RinnieThePoooh @nillawafer_8

After a sporting event that I’ve taken photos of, I usually do a quick run through of the pics and delete about half of them. The reasons for the deletions vary, but they usually consist of one or more of the following: subject out of focus, lack of action, awkward face, lighting that can’t be salvaged, lack of eyes/ball in frame, and/or already have a similar photo that is better.

When I first saw this photo, my finger went to the delete key since the potential subject (Nila) is out of focus. Then I paused a bit and looked at Courtney and Corynn. I immediately realized that they were the real subjects. I had prefocused on someone at the net before taking this, as it is extremely difficult to get a decent focus in gym lighting if you try to focus at the last second (especially when you are on the opposite side of the net from your subject).

I don’t know if I have any shots of really good “covering” that were intentionally set up that way, but this one looks like it was. Therefore, it became a keeper. Actually it’s one of my favorite volleyball shots due to its uniqueness. There are loads of great volleyball kill photos out there, but how many good shots of players covering a potential block do you see?
