Southland Softball Championship
Collegiate Athletics Live Game Production 2018
After a week full of thunderstorms, the Southland Conference softball championship was finally about to end at 1 am local time on a late Friday night (or early Saturday morning, depending on your perspective) in May. With the McNeese Cowgirls adding to their huge lead, confusion ensued. Foreshadowing by the broadcast team, followed by the calm manner in which everyone on the production handled the incident, makes this a broadcast worthy of award consideration. Of course, we can only show you a five-minute chunk. The rest of the production was equally well done. The team was able to spotlight some outstanding student-athletes, while mixing in a lot of fun elements that went along with playing at the ridiculously late hour.
