PLATTSBURGH — Cardinal Points, SUNY Plattsburgh’s student-run newspaper, was named to the Associated Collegiate Press’s Best of Show list at the National Collegiate Media Association convention in New Orleans.

The paper came in at eighth in the four-year weekly tabloid division. Other papers named in that division included those from the University of North Florida, University of Miami, Georgia State University and California State University Stanislaus.

The issue judged came out Oct. 18 and was produced by current Cardinal Points staff, including Editor-in-Chief Stanley Blow III, Managing Editor Lara Dufresne, News Editor Brian Molongoski, Sports Editor Zachary Ripple, Fuse Editor Elizabeth Reff, Opinions Editor Brittany Shew, Photo Editor Alexander Ayala and Web Editor Melanie Rivera.

This is the second time the paper has made the Best of Show list. The first was in 2011, when the college ranked No. 1 among four-year, non-daily newspapers.
