ORLANDO, Fla. – The Midland University Sports Information Department was honored by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) at the 2017 CoSIDA Convention this week, garnering six Top-10 finishes in the annual NAIA-SIDA Publications & Media Contest.
The six categories in which Midland placed are the most-ever for the department.
"It's always nice to be recognized by your peers. There are so many talented SIDs in the NAIA, and it's a great honor to be recognized among the best in the country," said Midland Sports Information Director Dave Albrecht. "What I'm most proud of is that each member of our staff was responsible for the creation of one of the pieces that received a Top-10 finish."
