ECC Panther Athletics rolls out new website
Ellsworth Community College’s Panther Athletic Department has rolled out a new athletic website at www.ECCAthletics.com. Affiliated with PrestoSports, the new site has more dynamic statistical reporting features and game updates, as well as lots more game and player photos.
“The Athletic Department and Marketing Office spent several months developing this new website, and we’re very pleased with the results,” says Nate Forsyth, ECC Director of Athletics and Student Life. “PrestoSports is the official statistics handler for the National Junior College Athletic Association and the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference, so it’s a natural fit for Ellsworth. Where game and player stats used to be entered by hand (if at all) on our old athletic website, they’ll be entered automatically on the new site when reporting data is sent by our coaches to NJCAA and ICCAC.”
The new website home page features photos from each sport, a ticker across the top with most recent game scores, a calendar of upcoming sporting events, links to news releases, and a series of ECC ads highlighting upcoming special activities and events.
Each of the individual college sports programs has a set of pages featuring news articles and news photos, a video of the coach, and photos from most of the current season’s home sporting events. The sports pages also include links to game schedules, rosters, coaches’ biographies, statistics, news releases and more.
“The PrestoSports website content management system is designed to appeal to our players, parents and fans on a variety of levels,” says Forsyth. “We hope to hear lots of good feedback on the new site over the summer and as players return to campus in the fall.”
