The Old Dominion University athletic public relations office was recently recognized by two national organizations for excellence in publications and advertising/marketing pieces.

The 2003 field hockey media guide was selected "Best in the Nation" for single-sport publications in Division I by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The guide was designed, written and edited by Tina Price, athletic publications director, and Kim Zivkovich, assistant sports information director.

The National Athletic Collegiate Marketing Association also awarded the ODU athletic public relations staff with two Best in the Nation awards at its recent convention in Dallas, including "Best Single Display Newspaper Advertising Campaign," and "Best Ticket Sales" piece. Contributing to those publications were Tina Price; Chuck Gray, athletic marketing director; and Mark Benson, director of the Big Blue Club.

In addition, Old Dominion was awarded a silver medal for its "Sponsor Fulfillment" piece, created and edited by Chuck Gray. The athletic public relations office is supervised by Debbie Byrne, associate athletic director.
