Marisa Latzman captured first place in the spring 2019 Drew Gyorke Memorial Fund Photo Contest for her image of a cemetery superintendent.
Rebeca Moreno took second place with a photo of a young girl helping her family sell Girl Scout cookies, while Lexi Horsey finished third with an action shot of University of Arizona women's basketball star Aari McDonald.
