BATON ROUGE - LSU's softball media guide has been voted the nation's top publication, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Friday in the organization's yearly contest.
The 108-page media guide has been rated among the top seven collegiate softball publications in the nation during eight of the last 11 seasons. The No. 1 finish is the program's first after a pair of second-place finishes in 2005 and 2011. It was written and edited by the Associate Sports Information Director Matt Dunaway with editorial assistance from LSU's student assistants.
Covers were designed by Graphic Design Coordinator Courtney Wilburn, while photography was provided under the direction of Steve Franz, Chris Parent and Hilary Scheinuk. The guide serves as a complete source of LSU softball information, including player and coach bios, statistics, notes, records and a summary of the program's storied history.
