The Saint Ignatius Student Sports Information Department (SSID) is a team of students that follow all Saint Ignatius sports teams at all levels of play. These students update the school website, write recaps of games and matches, and keep you continuously updated on any sport at Saint Ignatius.
In 2010, the Sports Information Department won its first ever gold medal for excellence in Sports Publications from the National High School Sports Publication Awards. The award was granted for the first ever football media guide produced by past SSID presidents, Michael Watts ‘11, and Jacob Corrigan ‘10.
The award, given to less than twenty publications annually, represents the first such prize for the department that began under the direction of Brendan Gulick '09 and Jeff McCormick '83 in 2007.
