UVa-Wise launches new athletic website

In conjunction with Sidearm Sports, the UVa-Wise Sports Information Department has just completed a redesign of the school's official athletic website, www.uvawisecavs.com.

The website now features new graphics of former and current-student athletes along with a more user friendly interface.  The site is fully integrated with both Twitter and Facebook allowing fans to interact with other Cavalier fans on social media sites about stories, rosters and results.

Tickets may also now be purchased from the website for the sports of football, volleyball and men's and women's basketball.  For those unable to attend the game, audio and video coverage of the Cavaliers has expanded, along with live in-game statistics.

"In an ever increasingly modern era, we felt that it was important to redesign our website to better interact with our students, parents, supporters, and alumni," said Sports Information Director Darrell-Dingus Ely.  "Without the design work of Sidearm Sports and Assistant Sports Information Mark Dixon this redesign would not have been possible.  The site is also available on tablets and smart phones which will allow supporters to keep up with all 13 intercollegiate athletic teams at UVa-Wise in real time while they are on the go."

The redesigned website officially launched at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 10.
