This is a wrap up of my 2016 UMass Lowell River Hawks hockey series. It’s time to look ahead to future projects.
After my first photo was published in the Lowell Sun on March 13, twenty more pics appeared over a two week period. A couple were published in the Lawrence Eagle Tribune and many in the UML Connector. Eight of the Sun photos were from the Hockey East Finals at TD Banknorth Garden. Nine were from the River Hawks participation in the NCAA East Finals in Albany, NY at the Times Union Center. Here are a few from March 27 on:
My favorite experience in Albany was capturing Gambardella’s game winning goal against Yale. It was up against deadline, and the Sun gave me twenty minutes from the time of the goal to get it to them “print ready.”

After Joe Gambardella’s game ending goal, it was on to the East Final game!
But alas, a trip to the “Frozen Four” wasn’t to be.
And now it’s on to baseball and other things!

and allowing five hits and no runs while striking out five Hartford batters.
