Cross Country Feature Nets MIAA Writing Award

A November feature about Marine Corps reservist and Albion College cross country runner Theresa Hencsie has been judged as the best piece of writing in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Bobby Lee, who has served as sports information director at Albion since 2001, is receiving the league's Robin Hartman Writing Award for the second consecutive year.

A native of Gahanna, Ohio, Lee came to Albion from Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio, where he had been sports information director for four years. He was in charge of publicity for 17 varsity sports with the Muskies, and served as host SID for three NCAA regional and seven Ohio Athletic Conference championship events. He previously was a graduate assistant in the Ohio State University athletic publicity department. While there, he was editor of the Ohio State football, men's basketball and women's basketball programs that received publication awards from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
