I have photographed a couple Ashford University softball games as part of my effort to re-build my sports photography portfolio. This weekend they played right here in Morrison as part of their Spring Jamboree. It was a nine team tournament and all proceeds raised went to the Iowa Care for Yourself Breast Cancer Early Detection Program. Ashford wore special pink uniforms and all teams participated in a ceremonial balloon release in honor of those who have succumbed to breast cancer.
