Penn State Altoona launches new website
Penn State Altoona Athletics recently announced that it is launching a new website to act as the central online presence for its varsity sports program.
Penn State Altoona Athletics has partnered with PrestoSports, a Rockville, Md.-based company specializing in college sports websites, to create www.psaltoonalions.com, the new official internet home of Lions and Lady Lions varsity sports.
“This addition to our Athletics program has been a long time coming. I am happy that we can now offer this resource to our student-athletes, their families, and our fans,” Penn State Altoona Director of Athletics Brent Baird said.
The new website offers the same content as Penn State Altoona’s previous Athletics site, including individual homepages for each of the school’s 14 NCAA Division III varsity teams that feature releases, game recaps, rosters, photos, video, statistics, records, and schedules.
In addition to those, the new website also allows for many new features, including a more user-friendly navigation of the site, a sport-by-sport e-mail list that lets fans sign up to receive news about their favorite teams, and improved prospective student-athlete forms to aid in the recruitment of new varsity athletes.
In addition to the new features and improvements that many people will see, there are also quite a few “behind the scenes” aspects that that will make Penn State Altoona’s Athletics Communication efforts more efficient.
As of now, www.psaltoonalions.com will be the official site of Penn State Altoona Athletics, while the previous site (sports.altoona.psu.edu) will no longer be updated or supported.
