2018 Nebraska Girls State Basketball Championships

Our region had one team make it to the finals playing at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb. Unfortunately the Ravenna Bluejays lost a very close basketball game. The Bluejays are one of hardest working basketball teams I’ve ever covered and they’re enjoyable to photograph. Here are some of my favorites from the championship game and over the course of the three-day tournament.
