Morehead State to launch new athletic web site next week

Morehead State, in conjunction with SIDEARM Sports, is scheduled to launch a new athletic web site late next week. The site’s address will continue to be MSUEagles.com.

The newly-designed communications platform will feature eight main categories -- sports, schedules, athletics, facilities, for athletes, for fans, follow MSU and giving. It will have convenient roll-over menu options, so fans can get to information they desire in a more efficient manner.

“SIDEARM Sports is pleased to announce the launch of Morehead State’s new athletic web site,” SIDEARM Sports President/CEO Jeffrey Rubin said. “The Eagles have been a member of our family since 2009, and we are excited to continue that partnership.”

The visually-enhanced site will include integration of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and photo galleries. It will also feature a window shade off the main page, so fans can keep up with events, promotions, camps, student-athlete recognition and other pertinent information.

“Our staff and the SIDEARM Sports staff have worked hard to pull this new site together,” Morehead State Director of Athletics Brian Hutchinson said. “This communications platform is one of the best ways we can deliver news to our fans, and we’re excited about its new features.”

The main page of MSUEagles.com will offer a column with results of previous events and schedule of upcoming competitions. In addition to date, time and opponent data, each entry will include links such as previews, live video, audio, stats, final results and recaps.

“We hope the fans, alumni, student-athletes and staff of Morehead State enjoy all of the features the new site has to offer,” Rubin said. “The Eagles will also benefit from the new Ohio Valley Conference site, which launched earlier this summer. We are thrilled to launch another new OVC site.”

More than 20 pages are being built from scratch for the new site, and links to approximately 20 other relevant pages will be conveniently located off the main headers. The newly-created platform will offer a cleaner design, leading to a more efficient user experience.

“We are excited about the new site as we get ready for the 2012-13 school year,” Hutchinson added. “There are lots of great things going on in the Morehead State athletic department -- and MSUEagles.com is one of the best ways for our fans to keep up with everything.”

MSU’s four-year contract extension with SIDEARM Sports runs through the 2015-16 school year.
