Thirty members of the Electronic Media Department attended the National Broadcasting Society Convention in Hollywood this past weekend. KU came home with two awards. They were the winners of the Model Chapter of the Year Award for excellence in service and the high level of achievement of the chapter. They were also awarded the Grand Prize in the Video Promo Category for their promotion of the 2013 football team. That video can be viewed here. Congratulations to Electronic Media and their advisors, Professors Helen Bieber and Cara Cotellese, for bringing home two more prestigious national awards!

GOLDEN BEAR ATHLETICS
A season-long goal and a lifelong dream came true on Saturday night as Kutztown University's Ziad Haddad can now call himself a National Champion after he won the NCAA Division II National Heavyweight Championship at the Cleveland Public Auditorium. Haddad went a perfect 25-0 this season and is just the second KU wrestler in school history to finish the season undefeated. He has been the top-ranked heavyweight in Division II for the entire season and capped his season with a 5-4 decision over fourth-ranked Jacob Mitchell of California Baptist, who also entered the match undefeated.

The well-known saying of every point counts paid dividends for the 11th-ranked Kutztown University women's bowling team on Sunday. Kutztown finished in fourth place by one pin in the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Sectionals to qualify for the USBC Nationals in Reno, Nev. in April. The Golden Bears finished with a total pinfall of 12,381, just one more than Davenport (12,380) to cap its comeback throughout the 64 baker-game tournament. This is the fourth straight year that Kutztown finished in the top of sectionals and qualified for the USBC National Tournament. Read their story here.
