CGA Polo vs. Atlanta

This past Friday night, I ventured out in the snow and cold to watch the CGA Polo Team as they hosted a polo team from Atlanta. The CGA girls played hard, but they were a little outmatched by the team from Atlanta. Though CGA lost, the game was still fun to watch as there was lot of action and excitement.

I’ve posted some of my favorite photos here. Additional photos are uploaded at the CulverPhotos website at:

CMA Football Sectionals vs. South Bend’s St. Joseph

A few weekends ago, Culver Academies varsity football played their second Sectional game against South Bend St. Joseph. The Eagles fought hard and held their own for the first half of the game. At one point, Culver Academies led the game. At some point though, mistakes were made and South Bend got into their groove. I’ve posted some photos here.

CGA Senior Portrait Session:Tesia Janicki

2011_Tesia_Janicki027c

Ginny and I have never been able to photograph a CGA drill team member. This year, we got to take pictures of Tesia, one of CGA’s drill team members and also a great piano player. Tesia is someone Ginny had met during the CGA 40th celebration. She was thrilled to find out that her mom contacted us to take her pictures, as Ginny was so impressed with the presentation Tesia did over the celebration weekend. We had a great time with Tesia and her mom. Tesia had great ideas for pictures and did a great job humoring us. 

CMA Varsity Football vs. Knox

 I’m posting these pictures late, but the CMA football team played so well at their first sectional game that I think you’ll agree that it’s better late than never. Ginny and I shot this game on a cold night, and what was the most fun was being on the sidelines with the team, as they really seemed to bond as a team. All of the players were upbeat throughout the game, encouraging each other and playing as if they knew they were going to win. It was a fun game. The final score was 44-12 with the Eagles being the victors.

CGA Varsity Volleyball Sectionals vs. Jimtown

You would have never guessed it was so windy and cold outside with all the excitment and heat inside the Plymouth High School Gym Thursday night.  The Culver Academies CGA Varsity Volleyball girls killed it against Jimtown at the Sectionals with three amazing victories to bring home the win and conitnue their advance in the Sectionals. The first win was a close call for the Culver Academy girls with a score of 25-20, but not to be dissapointed, the fans got two out of the park (or should I say gym) matches with scores of 25-14 and 25-12. GREAT WIN LADY EAGLES.

As you look through the photos, please take notice of the determination and teamwork that the girls showed. The girls played really well and always had each others’ backs on the court. It was one of the funest volleyball games that I’ve watched.

CMA JV Football vs. Fairfield October 15th, 2011

This past Saturday morning, the CMA JV football team played a home game against Fairfield  The weather was nice but a little cold. If there hadn’t have been any wind, it would have been a nice day for a game. (I was wearing long johns. Last year, I learned my lesson at one of the late Fall Saturday morning games where I froze.)

If you’ve never witnessed a Saturday morning football game at Culver Academies, I’d highly recommend watching one sometime. The campus looks great, but what caught my eye were the horses. I’ll explain. Every Saturday morning, the Horsemanship Department lets the horses out their pens to run and get some exercise. Culver is very unique in that these exercise pens are right behind the visiting team’s bleachers. From where I was on the Eagle’s sideline, I had a perfect view of the opposing team’s fans and the horses. At the start of the game, one or two very young children were brave enough to venture over to the fence to talk with the horses and pet them. By the time the game was over, there were at least a dozen young kids doing the same thing. As I drove home from the game, I realized that those kids probably had more fun at this weekend’s game than any other in the season. I imagine that those kids will think back to the game with a smile.

In true Culver Academies form, there is always something going on. Saturday was no different. If anyone had wanted to take a break from the football game, within a few hundred yards, they could have watched Cross Country Regionals or a CGA Polo game. Or, if nothing else, they could have explored Culver’s beautiful campus and walked along the shore of Lake Maxinkuckee.

The Culver JV Football team played hard and tried. Unfortunately, their opponent, Fairfield High School, has an undefeated JV team. I’m told that this group of young men has been undefeated together for a couple of years. Watching the game, this was very obvious. The JV Eagles lost. It was still fun to watch and there were some great plays. I managed to get a lot of photos that I hope you will check out. (Football photos on a sunny day always turn out better than the ones taken under the lights.)
