Cell: (413) 636-7973
Credentials are issued to official photographers (who have been cleared by the Athletic Communications Office) and members of the working media. Parents and relatives of student-athletes, as well as non-official photographers must communicate with Jon Santer before entering the sidelines for photography purposes.
All requests for interviews must be made through Jon Santer, regardless of previous relationships with student-athletes. 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.
Interviews with Mount Holyoke student-athletes and head coaches will take place following the NCAA mandated 10-minute cooling-off period. All Mount Holyoke team locker rooms are closed to the media both for home and road contests. Jon Santer 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 Jon Santer or the team's head coach in their absence.
