Weekend reporters and editors step it up

Lots of compliments all around for's reporting this weekend, especially the sports staff, which stepped things up to another level with its game coverage.

The most fun and satisfying effort for me were the dual Twitter posts at the end of the men's basketball team's game against UC San Diego, which the Wildcats won on a last-second three-point basket.

Beat reporter Brett Appley captured the excitement on the court with his Tweets, and Online Editor Dan Reidel chimed in by using the Orion sports @-tag to supply additional details in the closing second of the game. Brett did a really nice job, then, of describing the unbelievable finish in his game story.

In addition, Price Peterson posted same-day stories about the rugby and softball games, and Emily Duran pitched in with her coverage of the baseball team's opening weekend series sweep.

Other good moments this weekend:
• Capturing Chico State's version of the Harlem Shake in both video and still photos (including an especially good mini-slide show by Brett Edwards).
• Terrific action shots of the men's rugby match, again by Brett.
• Nice review (by Zach Coyle) and photos (Meghan Silva) of Saturday's performance of "The Love Seat Diaries" posted on Sunday.

As a bonus, all three were smartly featured in the photo rotator on home page.
