Green Knight e-fans get closer to athletics action
Live stats join audio webcasts and Midwest Conference TV as a way for Green Knight fans to stay on top of their teams using the new athletics web site. The redesigned site boasts a structure that is much easier to navigate and also introduces a complete press release database housing game previews and match reports.
The athletics site allows fans one-click access to information about any Green Knight team from any page within the site, making navigation quick and easy.
The addition of live stats
The athletics department has introduced the live stats program so that Green Knight fans can catch live action online from anywhere. The service, currently available for men’s and women’s basketball home games, displays individual and team statistics, as well as a play-by-play rundown of the games as they occur.
The new web site still features Midwest Conference TV and audio webcasts for Green Knight football, volleyball and basketball games. Fans can tune in to live audio webcasts for hockey and football events.
To access these programs online, look for them in the right-hand column of the team pages for which they’re offered.
Consolidated press releases
Visitors to the athletics web site need no longer navigate to the home pages of individual teams to access news and information. The most recent media releases continue to be available on the home page and, in addition, an athletics press release page plays host to an entire database of Green Knight previews and recaps. This page allows users to scan all releases or to zero in on a particular team using a drop-down menu.
From the same page, fans can subscribe to the St. Norbert College athletics press releases RSS feed. To learn more about receiving these immediate alerts, visit http://www.snc.edu/rss/ .
Dissecting a team page
The individual team pages of the new athletics web site offer a consistent layout to make finding information quick and easy. The primary information you will find on each page includes:
1. Fast Facts offer visitors a quick overview of the team, accompanied by a slideshow of Green Knight athletes in action.
2. Next up a mini schedule designed to automatically display the next three matches, games or meets for the current season also offers visitors a link to the complete schedule/results page.
3. The team navigation provides links to the team’s roster, statistics, coaching staff, recruiting information and press releases.
4. Watch/listen online through links to any available opportunities to watch or listen to the team’s live action on the web. You’ll find links in the middle of the right-hand column.
5. Quick links give fans easy access to conference and divisional news, information and standings of the Green Knights and their competitors.
