UB production wins a New York Emmy for football series

A production of the University at Buffalo Athletics Department received an Emmy Saturday from the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at the organization's 61st annual awards at The Marriott Marquis in New York City.

UB Football Insider: Training Camp Edition won first place in Sports: Daily or Weekly Program.

It was also nominated in the Sports: Program Series against against competition from Pegula Sports and Entertainment, MSG Plus, the YES Network, and the New York Jets.

"The broadcasting and communications group inside athletics is extremely creative and embraces collaboration like no other staff that I've worked with in my 30 years of storytelling," said Boone Enser, UB associate AD for communications & broadcasting. "To be able to win this award against competition from such well-respected outlets is a testament to content being produced every day here at UB."

The series aired on WGRZ-TV and took an in-depth look at the team's preseason preparation for the 201i UB football season.

Canisius 11, Iona 0: The Golden Griffins (20-11, 9-3 MAAC) stand in third place in the conference after completing a three-game sweep of their Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference series with Iona in New Rochelle. Winning pitcher Andrew Sipowicz started and pitched one-hit ball for six innings. Kyle Warner and Alvin Vega completed the shutout.

Liam Wilson of the Griffs had an RBI single to reach base in all 31 games this season. Christ Conley walked twice to extend his on-base streak to 21 games but saw his streak ended as 12 games.

Canisius swept a doubleheader from the Gaels, 13-4 and 12-3, on Saturday as Liam Wilson and Christ Conley (Lake Shore) hit home runs and Ryan Stekl hit two in the nightcap, including a grand slam.


Western Michigan 5, UB 2: The visiting Broncos snapped the UB men's three-match winning streak on Sunday at the Miller Tennis Center in Williamsville.  Villhelm Fridell won at first singles for the Bulls (10-9, 3-2 MAC).

On Saturday, the UB women (14-3, 7-0 MAC) won their 11th match in a row, 6-1 at Akron, to wrap up the No. 1 seed for the MAC tournament. The Bulls clinched at least a share of the MAC regular season title.
