SID Download Page
Contains roster and stats files for opposing SIDs. It is the policy of the Stonehill Athletic Communications office to email word and stat crew roster files, as well as an updated PDF copy of combined statistics prior to an upcoming road contest. However, should you need access to those files earlier, the updated files are also available at the link above.

Media and Photography Credentials
Credentials are issued to members of the working media only. Please contact Doug Monson, Assistant Athletic Director, Communications, for credentials. Parents or relatives of student-athletes are not permitted to be on the sidelines for photography purposes for any sport. Passes for credentialed media will be left at will call for events taking place at W.B. Mason Stadium and Merkert Gymnasium. Passes should be requested no later than 48 hours prior to a contest to ensure space availability. On field/court photography credentials will not be issued for parents and non-professional photographers due to NCAA and liability issues.

Interview Policies
All requests for interviews must be made through Doug Monson, regardless of sports or previous relationships. Requests must be made at least one day in advance to allow the student-athlete or coach to be properly notified. If a telephone interview is necessary, arrangements can be made for the student-athlete to contact the media member. Student-athlete phone numbers will never be issued to media members by the Athletic Communications office. 

Practice Coverage
Stonehill College's athletic programs practice at specific times during the academic year. All student-athletes and coaches are available for interviews prior to, or following, practice as long as the media member has made proper contact with Doug Monson or Denise Archetto. Interviews are not granted on game days prior to competition.

Media Parking
There is no designated parking area for media members. The lot in closest proximity to all athletic events is the parking lot behind the Sally Blair Ames Sports Complex, which has ample parking.

Press Box Facilities/Services
The media areas at W.B. Mason Stadium and Merkert Gymnasium are available for only credentialed members of the media. All members of the working media will be provided with game notes, statistics and rosters before each contest. Statistics will be distributed at halftime and complete statistical packages will be provided following the contest. Media members can file stories from the W.B. Mason Stadium press box, Merkert Gymnasium or the Athletic Communications Office located within the Sally Blair Ames Sports Complex following the game.

Postgame Interviews
Interviews with Stonehill student-athletes and head coaches will take place following the NCAA mandated 10-minute cooling-off period. The Skyhawks' locker room is closed to the media both for home and road contests. Doug Monson, Denise Archetto, or a member of the Athletic Communications office staff, will assist in securing media members with post-game interviews. Interviews with opposing players must be arranged with the opposing team's sports information personnel, or through Monson, Archetto or the team's head coach in their absence.
