New York Class A state champion Massapequa made the cut for MaxPreps’ Images of the Year, which were published on Thursday, Aug. 7.

The photo shown here, was taken by Dave Anderson, after the Chiefs took their first-ever state title, beating Fayetteville-Manlius 16-2 on June 7 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

The photos were selected among images by more than 1,000 freelance photographers in MaxPreps’ professional photographers’ network nationwide.

Each photographer had the option of submitting three samples from his or her 2013-14 archives.

From the 20 images published here – which were chosen by the photo editor and director of photography from all submissions – three will be selected in an upcoming vote of the MP pro photo network to determine the top three, for cash awards.

New York high schools were represented in six of the 20 images in the feature overall.
