The St. Andrew’s School (SAS) Athletic Sports Information Department has received two major honors from media outlet Lone Star Christian Sports Network (LSCSN).
The awards, which were announced earlier this morning during their inaugural Sports Media Awards 2019-20, recognizes the best coverage or promotion of Texas private and parochial high school athletics.
Out of 1,888 total private and parochial schools in the state of Texas, inclusive of all 18 Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC) schools, the Highlanders received top billing in the category of Top Athletic Twitter Feeds.
In awarding the social media distinction to the Highlanders, LSCSN Editor-in-chief Jon Walk explained “All throughout the year [@SASHighlanders
] is consistent, professional, clean, informative, and innovative."
This is the second such honor of its kind for SAS after previously placing first amongst SPC schools only in June of 2018.
In addition, the Highlanders weekly podcast titled Horns Up,
placed second in the Top Sports Podcast category, for which it was hailed as a “Quality program.”
The program, which began in January 2019, has recorded 44 guests, and includes conversations with student-athletes, present and former coaches, and alumni athletes.
