Special to The Hays Daily News

The Fort Hays State University Sports Information department earned national recognition for its 2012-2013 publications. Voted on by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), the FHSU Volleyball and Women's Basketball Media Guides both ranked in the top three nationally within the College Division, which includes all non-NCAA Division I institutions (NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, and NJCAA). The volleyball guide ranked second and women's basketball guide ranked third. Prickett, sports information director, now has six top-five national finishes for media guides at Fort Hays. Prickett was assisted on both guides by former graduate assistant Tim Hanson, now SID at Newman University.

The FHSU Volleyball Media Guide was the best in NCAA Division II for the second straight year, but edged for Best in the Nation honors this year by NJCAA representative Johnson County (Kan.) Community College. Washburn ranked third, giving the state of Kansas a 1-2-3 sweep nationally in the College Division. In 2011, Prickett teamed with former graduate assistant Doug Self, now SID at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, to earn their first Best in Nation honor by CoSIDA for the FHSU Volleyball Media Guide.

This was also the second straight year the FHSU Women's Basketball Media Guide finished in the top five nationally. The women's basketball rankings for media guides were nearly identical to volleyball, with Johnson County at the top of the list, Washburn second, and FHSU third, giving the state of Kansas another 1-2-3 sweep. Prickett has gained a top-five ranking for six media guides in his career, which includes volleyball, women's basketball, and men's basketball. He has also finished in the top 10 nationally for football media guides.

Jennifer Robinson of Fort Hays State University CTELT designed the covers and all photos in the guides are provided by Mitch Weber, also of CTELT. Fort Hays State University Printing Services printed the guides. The entire layout, including writing and design, of the guide interiors were done by Prickett and Hanson.

Prickett, native of Salina and graduate of Fort Hays, will enter his ninth year as SID at FHSU in the fall of 2013.
