Clarksville, Ark. ? The University of the Ozarks Sports Information Office received its third national award of the year after the 2008 version of the softball media guide was voted the third-best in its classification.
The publication earned its ranking in a judging that includes NCAA III, NAIA and NCCAA institutions as well as junior colleges. The 32-page guide was voted on by a panel of media members and is sponsored by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America. The guide was written, edited and designed by Sports Information Director Josh Peppas. Assistant Sports Information Director Daniel Gallegos provided editorial and statistical contributions. The softball guide joins the women’s soccer and baseball media guide as national award winners for the 2007-2008 athletic year.
The judging is based on seven categories, including team information, season in review, program history, general information, conference information, graphic design and editorial.
