Brenda Bogle began her first year as sports information director for Florida National University in August 2022.
Since taking over SID responsibilities, Bogle revamped the FNU athletics website and social media platforms. This undertaking included recaps for all 13 varsity sports and a heavy focus on incorporating sports photography into graphics and other gameday-related posts.
“I want to showcase FNU student-athletes as much as possible,” Bogle said. “My job is to highlight the amazing group of students here at the university that dedicate so much time to their respective sports.”
Her first year saw men’s soccer advance to the second round of the NAIA National Tournament as women’s soccer finished third in the USCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship. Bogle provided graphics and social media posts during both championships for the Conquistador faithful. In the spring, Bogle traveled with the Conquistador softball team to the USCAA Small College World Series providing postgame recaps, photography and wrote a feature story on FNU softball’s connection with a local little league softball player called ‘From DuBois with love: FNU softball’s special bond with little league standout at SCWS’.
During her time at the University of Florida, she worked for The Independent Florida Alligator as a sports writer. Her primary coverage centered around Florida women’s basketball, softball and tennis. Through her work at the paper, she covered various major sporting events, including the women’s March Madness tournament, the Women’s College World Series and the NCAA Division I Tennis Championships.
She also wrote feature stories on Gator athletes, including Florida tennis star Emma Shelton. Bogle also followed Ben Shleton’s journey to becoming the 2022 NCAA DI Singles Champion. Her last piece on staff focused on Florida Soccer’s new head coach, Samantha Bohon, and the culture change under her tenure.
Bogle was born and raised in Hialeah, Fla., and graduated Magna Cum Laude from UF with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism specializing in sports and media.
