What started as "it won't stick" became close to 11 inches in parts of West Cobb, Georgia ... including in my own backyard.

All school activities were canceled Friday, December 8th and school didn't resume until Tuesday, December 12th. As things began to finally defrost during the week of December 11th, Allatoona Wrestling and Allatoona Swim became my focus.

First up was Allatoona Wrestling Senior and Alumni Night on Wednesday, December 13th. Allatoona Wrestling took on River Ridge and Sprayberry.

Hoop Dreams http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/12/hoop-dreams Thankfully, I only had one event to shoot since I was still full on turkey and pie from the last few days. Since I decided to be just a "parent" during Saturday's Allatoona swim meet (yes, sometimes I do put the camera down), I only shot Allatoona Men's Basketball during the week of November 27, 2017.

On Friday, December 1st, Allatoona Men's Basketball had a non-conference home game against Etowah High School

Black Friday Football http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/11/black-friday-football The week of November 20, 2017 was Thanksgiving week and school was out. Playoffs continued for Allatoona Football which meant 8:30 a.m. football practice every morning including on Thanksgiving Day.

Practicing on Thanksgiving Day isn't anything new to the Buccaneers. Although Allatoona is only 10 years old, they've practiced on Thanksgiving Day five out of the past eight years. Instead of Black Friday shopping, Allatoona headed to Adams Stadium to take on 11-1 Tucker High School, number one seed from Region 4-AAAAAA.

1 Sport, 2 Sports, 3 Sports, 4 http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/11/1-sport-2-sports-3-sports-4 Typically my Week in Sports starts on a Monday but last week, I started the week shooting Allatoona's Basketball and Dance Team Seniors on Sunday, November 12th for their senior posters. Since they haven't revealed the posters yet, will keep all of those images a secret. Although, I am loving this dance image that I can't help but share!

The rest of the week was action-packed! I shot four Allatoona sports during the week of November 12th which included Men's and Women's Basketball, Varsity Football, JV and Varsity Wrestling and Swimming.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/11/the-most-wonderful-time-of-the-year It's the most wonderful time of the year ... high school football playoffs in Georgia! For the week of November 6th, I only had one sport on my schedule to shoot and that was Allatoona Football.

Hello, November http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/11/hello-november First week of November and football is still in action. Allatoona had their final regular season game at Dalton High School, 60 miles away. Allatoona went into this game with a guaranteed playoff spot but most importantly, a win would give them home-field advantage for the first round.

The last time Allatoona played Dalton was nearly a year ago on November 4, 2016 where Dalton pulled away with a win with a final score of 24-22.

This time was different.

No Place Like Home http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/10/no-place-like-home With Allatoona Fast Pitch Softball playing in the GHSA State Championship in Columbus, GA, the only Allatoona sport on deck for me was Allatoona Football.

Friday, October 27th was the last regular season home game for the Allatoona Buccaneers and they were taking on River Ridge High School. Playoffs start November 10th and because seeding has yet to be determined, every game matters. There's no place like home and Allatoona would love to have home field advantage for the playoffs!

The Buc Nation in Full Swing http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/10/the-buc-nation-in-full-swing The week of October 16th was an exciting one! I was fortunate to be able to capture Allatoona Fast Pitch Softball, Freshman Football, Varsity Football, Varsity Competition Cheer and Cross Country. It makes me tired just typing it up.

It all started on Wednesday, October 18th. Allatoona Fast Pitch Softball competed in the GHSA second round playoffs against Dunwoody HS. Allatoona had home field advantage and it was a best of three series.

Homecoming Season http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/10/homecoming-season It was an exciting week at Allatoona High School during the week of October 9th. It was Homecoming week. Daily themes, senior superlatives and a pep rally all leading up to the weekend events ... homecoming game against Sprayberry and the homecoming dance.

Hello, Fall! http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/10/hello-fall It was Fall Break which means it was an extremely quiet week for sports in Cobb County, Georgia. Fortunately, there was one sport that I had the opportunity to shoot, Allatoona Fast Pitch Softball.

It wasn't a home game but since the opponent was Harrison High School, I didn't have to travel far. Harrison is actually closer to my house than Allatoona.

Last Week of Summer http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/9/last-week-of-summer It was the last week of summer but with temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s, it was hard to tell that fall was on the horizon. On deck for the week was Varsity Volleyball, JV Football and Varsity Football.

Blue Skies http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/9/blue-skies As Hurricane Irma was approaching, Cobb County schools made the decision to cancel school and all activities Monday and Tuesday during the week of September 11th.

This means Varsity Softball's game against Harrison on Tuesday was canceled and unfortunately, I wasn't able to make the Wednesday rescheduled game.

After Irma passed us by, we were blessed with blue skies for the remainder of the week but continued to keep victims from both Harvey and Irma in our thoughts. Allatoona High School is also pulling together to collect donations through the end of this week for Houston.

A Week of Wins http://www.chrystalmoore.com/blog/2017/8/a-week-of-wins Another full week of sports consisting of volleyball and football games! I had the opportunity to enjoy Senior Night with both of my HS Seniors and remembered every single moment (mostly because we captured it on our GoPro camera).
