See the Post Independent’s best sports stories of 2014.

Unlike some small daily and nondaily newspapers around the country, the Post Independent and Citizen Telegram have been blessed to have some very talented photographers in the community whose contributions have helped enhance the storytelling elements of our publications. It’s through these photos that we’re able to help give our readers and local sports fans a memorable, visual element to our product. Great photos help spark a wide range of emotions, ranging from euphoria, sadness, anger and even heartbreak.

The goal was to capture that in every photo we ran in the paper. If we didn’t, I believe we came close.

The following are some of the more memorable images of 2014, documenting some of the moments on the field of play the past year. Kudos go out to photographers Jim Ryan, Darcy Copeland, Christopher Mullen, Kelley Cox and Paul Cloud for the help they have given over the course of the past 365 days.

Here’s to more great memories in the coming year!
