For the first time in school history, a Seward County Athletics Media Guide has captured a National award. Last week at the College Sports Information Directors of America’s annual convention in Orlando, Florida, it was announced that the Saints Baseball Media Guide was voted second best in the nation in the college division by CoSIDA members.
The college division of the contest was made up of all non-Division I schools in the country and was won by Embry-Riddle University from Dayton Beach, Florida. The Saints guide took second place in the contest and fellow Jayhawk Conference member Johnson County was the third place recipient.
The Seward County Baseball Media Guide was originally designed by former Sports Information Director Scott Lacefield and has been kept up by current Seward SID Roy Allen. The guide, which is now 149 pages long covers every aspect of Seward County baseball including history, records, facilities, season preview/review, as well as information about the college.
Contestants for the CoSIDA publications contest were judged on graphics, design, editorial, team information, season review, program history, conference information, and general information.
