Abdiel Torre of the Jacquelines Grocery Store team, left, and Yonga Zagarella of Shoe City fight for the rebound in the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill Minor League Basketball championship game. Photographers Take: I picked this photo as a photo of the year not only because of the action, but for the fighting expressions on the young boys' faces. The Boys & Girls Club of Haverhill and local Haverhill businesses sponsor the popular basketball tournament every year. The future high school basketball stars show determination to succeed and win possession of the ball in order to win the game for their teams. More importantly, all the boys and girls involved are winners because they are taught to be respectful and fair in life. A high five to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill for accomplishing that goal every day.
