"UVU's Flint Ray crushes Boise State's Mark Bleuze into the mat in the 133-weight bout in the Shurian Family Activity Center at Utah Valley University, Friday, Feb. 5, 2010. UVU upset No. Boise State."

Sometimes you should listen to you gut instinct. Other times you shouldn't. I don't know why, but I went for the latter the other night.

It wasn't anything major or even worth mentioning, but I should have brought in my 300mm to the wrestling match.

The setup was pretty horrible, not really allowing photographers anywhere but to two corners of the mat. The sides were either blocked by fans sitting right on the mat, huge advertisements and media table or the two team benches.

I've never seen a match so packed tight to the ring. Alas, making my far reaches of the corner a bit too far away for most of the matches.

Don't get me wrong, I had fun, but being pinned away in a corner, with horrible lighting isn't my idea of fun. Next time I'll bring the 300.

This is a nice tight wrestling photo with some great expressions! I have been doing the HS tournaments the last few weeks and have been trying to do the same as you have done here with limited success.
