Hi RedFox88...thanks for commenting.

Well I'll say my choice was rather than try to fiddle with settings for each and every shot, I chose to set my camera for the worst case scenario(s) that would allow me a fast enough shutter speed to freeze movement (which was constant) and to fire off a few shots in rapid succession from time to time in hope of getting one good shot that was not ruined by the ever changing lighting - this environment is far more challenging than trying to shoot sports in a HS gym with poor lights and managing the recycle factor. I then set it to TV mode (shutter priority) and played around with different shutter speeds to see what they would yield...sure I could have settled on a lower shutter speed and in turn a lower ISO - but what the heck I wanted to see what the max would give me...this was for fun and sort of an experiment so why not? Overall I'm happy and can't really complain about the results.
