Northridge Soccer and Softball Media Guides Named Best in the Nation
Northridge Athletic Media Relations had a pair of its 2005-06 media guides honored as the nation's best in this year's CoSIDA Publications Contest, with the soccer and softball guides each earning Best in the Nation awards.
Under the design of Athletic Media Relations Art Director Braden Villanueva and the editing of AMR Director Ryan Finney and Assistant AMR Director James Ybiernas, the men's and women's soccer combined media guide was first among 19 entries in the Multi-Sport Guide contest. The Matador softball media guide beat out 51 other entries to also garner Best in the Nation honors.
The awards for the soccer and softball media guides give the Athletic Media Relations Office nine Best in the Nation awards over the last five years. Along with numerous regional awards over the last five years, the Matadors have received Best in the Nation awards for the 2002 track and field poster, the 2003 men's and women's soccer media guide, the 2002, 2004 and 2005 men's volleyball media guides and the 2005 softball media guide cover.
