The University of Memphis Athletics Communications Office has been recognized for excellence in publications by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The office received four publications awards for the 2012-13 academic year including three which recognized the office as having the Nation’s Best in three different categories.
Memphis’ Fall Fact Book was named the No. 1 Multiple Sports Guide at the university level. The publication also received recognition for the Best Cover in the multiple sports guide category.
The office also received Best Cover in the Nation recognition for its Single Sport Programs which were produced with a common theme, “I am a Tiger. Hear me Roar.” Memphis also received a third-place award for Spring At-Large Guides for its women’s golf fact book.
Athletics Communications Assistant Director Brandon Kolditz coordinated the projects and created the design elements of the publications. Assistant Director Mark Taylor and former intern Jaclyn Berschler also played a major role in the creation of the Single Sports Programs. Former Athletics Communications intern Travis Chell served as editor of the women’s golf fact book.
The University of Memphis has received a combined 10 “Best in the Nation” awards in the past four years.
“CoSIDA’s recognition of the University of Memphis’ athletic publications is a direct reflection on the dedication and creativity of our staff to publicize and promote our student-athletes, coaches and the university,” said Ron Mears, assistant athletics director. “It is an honor to see our office’s work acknowledged by our colleagues in athletics communications.”
