The Grace College athletic website www.GCLancers.com earned three national top-10 awards at this week’s NAIA-SIDA National Convention.
The newly redesigned website was launched less than a year ago in June 2013. At the national convention in Orlando, Fla., Grace’s athletic website tied for 10th place in the “Outsourced Websites” contest and was tops among the Crossroads League members. The Lancers’ website was designed by SIDEARM Sports and is maintained by Sports Information Director Josh Neuhart.
Additionally, GCLancers.com earned two top-10 results in the “Best Special Event Webpage” contest. The webpage celebrating the men’s basketball team’s 1,000 career victories was fourth at the national level, and the NCCAA Basketball Championship Central was eighth overall.
GCLancers.com posted over 400 articles during the 2013-14 athletic season. The website features live streaming of home contests, extensive photo galleries for each sport, and social media integration. The online presence of Grace Athletics also unveiled a complete mobilized version of the website during the past year.
