Emory & Henry College has updated its athletic website, GoWasps.com, providing users with a dynamic, interactive online presence that highlights teams and athletes through an increased use of photography, video and feature stories.
The upgraded site, which is the online home of the Wasps, launched Friday, Sept. 2. Sports Information Director Joe Matthews began work on the new site in the middle of May, shortly after his arrival at Emory & Henry.
“I’m extremely excited for the public to see the new and improved GoWasps.com,” said Matthews of the launch. “I believe that it has first-rate design and will be easy to navigate for everyone interested in learning more about the athletic programs here at Emory & Henry.”
The upgraded site is hosted by PrestoSports, a Maryland-based company that specializes in small-college athletic websites. PrestoSports is already home to the majority of ODAC programs as well as the D3 sports site. With this relationship, score reporting and statistical updates after contests feed to those locations automatically.
“The website is the ‘front porch’ for our athletic program, and I’m very pleased that we’re getting this facelift on our house,” said Director of Athletics Myra Sims. “I think this will be a tremendous asset to us in promoting our programs and in publicizing the accomplishments of our student-athletes and coaches. It also will benefit us in our recruiting efforts since the web is the first place that prospects go when they want to get information about a program.”
The site can be accessed at www.GoWasps.com.
