Diana Chamorro's Sports Information Office at Princeton University was honored by the Collegiate Water Polo Association as the National Water Polo Sports Information Office of the Year
Princeton University can add a national title to its mantle as the Tigers' Sports Information Office garnered honors as the National Water Polo Sports Information Office of the Year. Led by Diana Chamorro (MSAL Alumna) and former water polo contact Yariv Amir, Princeton achieved national exposure for the sport by coordinating the broadcast of the Tigers' game versus Santa Clara University during the men's season on ESPN, while enabling the broadcast of multiple home games from DeNunzio Pool via internet streaming and providing a continuous stream of publicity for the program. Selected from among all varsity institutions around the country for achieving notable national excellence in the field of water polo communications during both the men's and women's seasons, the award marks the only exclusive national water polo award in athletic communications. This award is meant to distinguish offices that achieved excellence across a broad spectrum of areas - including national, regional and local communications - during both genders' competitive seasons, while innovating in coverage of the sport.
