The Associated Press Media Editors has honored the above photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for October 2013.
Thanks to Dan Marschka and Marty Heisey at Lancaster Newspapers Inc. for judging this month.
Here is what the judges had to say about the winning image:
"This is an excellent group of photos that solved some challenging assignments. We kept returning to the volleyball photo because we know how difficult that sport is to cover well. We often see the shots of the serve or at the net, but to capture action this well composed and unique, at that precise moment, deserves recognition. This photo is a winner from what could have been just another mundane assignment. Producing good work at this type of assignment is probably the biggest challenge we face these days."
