Angela Roberts, assistant athletic director-communications, was honored by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) for her excellent design work highlighting the rosters for both the volleyball and women’s basketball teams. Roberts netted a ninth-place win in the Fall Posters College-Division category and a third-place win in the Winter Posters College-Division category. Roberts’ designs highlight each player with excellent studio shots, eye-catching white opponent logos juxtaposed against Skyhawk blue, and hand-drawn graphics that give the still images a sense of movement.
It’s no small honor to earn these awards either; CoSIDA is the second-oldest management organization in intercollegiate athletics. The organization provides opportunities to athletic professionals through advocacy, diversity and inclusion efforts, professional development, academic all-American awards, and awards and contests for members.
