Crosscut's story last week about cricket-playing software engineers attracted interest from readers regionally and even internationally. Bellevue student photographer Jack Hunter attended one of the division finals on Sunday, and the result was a visual feast of the sport's agony and the ecstasy.
Division A, the premiere league, was won by the Microsoft Cowboys at Marymoor Park, and Division B was won by the SouthSide Hunters (no relation) also at Marymoor. Division C was won by the King County Desis at the Tukwila Cricket Grounds.
