June 29, 2010
CORAL GABLES, FLA. – Two media guides produced by the University of Miami Sports Media Relations Department have received awards in an annual competition sponsored by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
In the CoSIDA Publications Contest, the 2009-10 media guides for both men’s basketball and women’s basketball placed fifth in the nation.
The men’s basketball media guide was designed by Margaret Belch, who is entering her fourth season as the Sports Information Director for men’s basketball. It marks the second-straight season that Miami’s men’s basketball media guide has earned national recognition, as the 2008-09 edition earned “Best Cover” honors.
The women’s basketball media guide was designed by Etta Schaller, the department’s Coordinator of Publications. Schaller, a 15-year member of the department, has been recognized by CoSIDA on numerous occasions including four “Best Cover” awards. Scott Zavitz, who is in his third year with the department, assisted Schaller with the women’s basketball media guide.
