Record-Chronicle wins 15 state journalism awards


Recommended Posts

Denton Record-Chronicle journalists won a combined 15 awards for their work during 2020 in honors announced Tuesday afternoon by the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors.

Reporters, editors and photographers were judged against their peers at all newspapers in the state with a circulation under 10,000.

Veteran sports reporter Brett Vito won first place in Deadline Writing for his coverage of the resignation of former University of North Texas assistant football coach Tate Wallis.

He also earned first place in Feature Series for his coverage of how UNT’s athletics program had been navigating the pandemic, and fellow reporter Marshall Reid won third in the same category for his series that profiled area students and their own struggles amid the pandemic.

Never understood why so many of us are against Bert's coverage. Guy has always been consistent and prompt, I enjoy the reads, and the Mean Green coverage is literally the only reason to have a DRC subscription for me

I wonder how many newspapers there are in Texas with a circulation under 10,000 ?

In a town the size of Denton, that is sad.  I know this is a result of younger generations preferring to read online, but I don't know if the circulation has ever been strong.  Doesn't appear to be much effort to grow.

But who has more horse-drawn carriages, icecutters, and lamplighters.

Get out of her with your fancy wheels and modern tools. We only worship monoliths and use bone weapons in new denton. Trying to be all fancy and new age...

      Indeed, the pessimism surrounding the program is rampant. Tech (3-4, 1-2 ACC) is sliding toward its third losing season in four years, an outcome that almost certainly would end Justin Fuente’s head-coaching tenure in Blacksburg, a tenure that began so auspiciously in 2016 with the ACC Coastal Division title.
      The prevailing question now isn’t whether the 2021 Hokies can win the Coastal but whether Fuente can earn a seventh season leading the program.
      With sports gambling all the rage, let’s assess his plight in handicapping parlance: He’s a 17-point underdog.
      Perhaps that’s a harsh portrayal of a coach with a 41-30 record. But big whistles are, and should be, judged on far more subtle facets than overall wins and losses.
      What are the trend lines? Are you recruiting well? How is your game and roster management?

      UNT Athletics: North Texas opens state-of-the-art Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility 
      Loyal donor ‘Bruzzy’ makes key contribution  
      For more information contact: Taylor Bryan, 254-709-4411, Taylor.Bryan@unt.edu 
       
      DENTON, Texas – After nearly two years of planning and construction, Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility had its ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, Sept. 18, prior to the Mean Green’s football game against UAB with both the men’s and women’s teams on hand along with North Texas president Neal J. Smatresk, Vice President and Director of Athletics Wren Baker, members of the UNT System Board of Regents, and the facility’s namesake and lead donor, Jerome “Bruzzy” Westheimer. 
       
      The $3 million on-campus practice facility is located on the east side of the former Eagle Point Golf Course on the east side of Apogee Stadium and Victory Hall, and houses both the men’s and women’s golf team. Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility is 5,047 square feet and features two hitting bays with state-of-the-art swing analysis and technology. Additional features include a virtual putting green along with chipping and putting areas, locker rooms, study space, coaches offices, a lounge and kitchen area.  The North Texas men's and women's golf teams have not had an on-campus outdoor training facility since the former Eagle Point Golf Course was shut down in 2003. 
       
      Westheimer has been instrumental in the upgrade and development of the UNT golf programs and other university educational endeavors over the past several years. He was honored as the recipient of the 2019 Wings of Eagles Award, which is the most prestigious award presented by the president for a person who embodies the true spirit of UNT through engagement, generosity and affinity.  He celebrated the grand opening by hitting an exploding ball filled with streamers for the ceremonial first drive at the facility along with a ribbon cutting by President Smatresk. 
       
      Other gifts for the project came from Ken and Ann Newman, C. Dan and Le’Nore Smith, David and Lynn Riley, Sam and Valerie Golden, Tom Klammer, Ernie Kuehne, Knowles Cornwell, Ward and Joyce White and Brad and Vicki Olson.  
         
      The Mean Green men's golf team has a long history of success, including four NCAA national championships, winning 31 conference championships and making 35 NCAA postseason appearances. Head coach Brad Stracke has won three conference championships and made five NCAA postseason appearances since he took over in 2009. Sophomore Vicente Marzilio won the 2021 Conference USA individual championship as a freshman and advanced to the NCAA Regional.   
         
      The Mean Green women's team, led by head coach Michael Akers, finished last season ranked No. 36 in the nation, the best end-of-season ranking in program history. The team also claimed the first conference championship in program history in 2021, and current senior Audrey Tan won the program’s first individual conference championship. The team earned its first automatic NCAA Regional bid.

      On what is different about UNT this year…
      "Offensively they are high tempo and they run a lot of tempo plays. Their biggest improvement already is their defense. They've had some times that they were good on defense and probably weren't quite as good as maybe they wanted to be the last few years. I see them coming back. You know they made a change at their defensive coordinator spot, I know him. They're going to be better there and they're always tough."
       
      On preparing for UNT high tempo offense…
      "I think one of the things we do and we have been doing for years is we put two huddles going at us just as fast as we can go. I think that is the only way you can simulate them is just practice. You got those two huddles coming at you. Your guys are just waiting for it. It is tough, and I don't care how much you do it. They move fast, and they are going to spread you horizontally. If you look at their splits with their receivers, they are at the bottom of the numbers. So, that really opens up running lanes and you have a quarterback who can make those throws. They have a transfer from North Carolina with a big arm. He can run so it is going to be a big challenge. Last year statistically, they were one of the top teams in the country in the numbers categories."
