Georgetown - Wed, Jun. 15, 2011
Tiger nation is a far reaching source of pride and dedication to the school and athletic programs Georgetown College has to offer. This large and passionate fan base is very important to the tradition of success.
With that, Tiger athletics is always trying to find the best way to service and reach its numerous fans and followers. A big part of that focus is on being able to allow our fans the opportunity to watch games live or archived, hear what the coaches have to say through coaches shows and check out pictures of various games and events.
Recently, www.ihigh.com/georgetowncollege was named a 2010-11 iHigh.com national top college web site. This award is not possible without the Tiger nation and a huge thank you goes to our dedicated fans.
After many years of radio broadcasting, GC athletics first experimented with web broadcasting through Wazoo Sports before becoming the first college to sign up with iHigh.com this past summer.
GC's decision to link in with iHigh began a new trend for the company previously focused on high school athletics. The two organizations began discussing the options May 2010 and shortly thereafter created a site for videos, games and photos.
Almost immediately this site began to see high traffic, as Tiger fans watched live or archived game broadcasts, checked out coaches' shows and viewed game and special occasion pictures. A year later and the trend is the same.
In 11 months, the college's site got an average of 66,834 views a month. Former media coordinator Steven Young deserves a great deal of thanks for all his work in making the Georgetown games and coaches' shows available to the widespread fan base. He has since turned the reigns over to Travis McGuire, who will not only look to continue what Steven started, but strives to find more ways to make the Tiger broadcasts and coaches shows better - as is the goal every year in any aspect of the athletic department.
