E&H Launches New Athletic Website

New Home at GoWasps.com

EMORY, Va. --- The Emory & Henry College Athletic Department is getting a new face with the launch of a brand-new website. The new online home of the Wasps will still carry the GoWasps.com address but will now be hosted with PrestoSports, a Maryland-based company that specializes in small college athletic websites.   First-year Sports Information Director Joe Matthews arrived in the middle of May and started work on the project immediately.

“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.”

E&H selected PrestoSports due to its commitment to quality and the fact that the majority of Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) programs, the ODAC conference site and many of the D3 sports sites are already “in network” with the PrestoSports family.  With this relationship, score reporting and statistical updates after contests will feed to those locations automatically.

The new site offers a clean and modern look, while also giving the athletic department expanded opportunities to highlight news, pictures and videos.

“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 will also 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.
