Good use of a pole as a seat back - looks like a comfy spot to me!

Cheering and helping the team even with an icepack!

Photographer/dad's note: one thing that I find both impressive and moving at this tournament is the sportsmanship and camaraderie these players exhibit.  After competing fiercely on the field for 90 minutes, they get together in the Spirit Circle and share praise and play games.  The hugs and smiles are genuine and the emotions touching.  I think it says a lot about the character/confidence of these women and the underlying spirit of the ultimate game.

Coach crashing the fun :-)
