New athletics Web site

Husky fans were treated to the debut of an enhanced intercollegiate athletic department Web site this spring, which provides a comprehensive on-line information resource for all 23 of St. Cloud State’s intercollegiate athletic teams.

The new look allows for more effective use of the many high-quality images produced by St. Cloud State campus photographer Neil Andersen ’96 and provides increased potential for use of slide show, audio and video clips highlighting Husky sports.

University Web developers Linda Carr ’78, Karin Duncan ’01 and Mark Monn ’99 were the main players on the technology side of the Web site transformation, while the Athletic Media Relations office staff of Anne Abicht ’06 master’s, Tom Nelson, Celest Stang ’03 ’05 and Terry Tschida provided insight and input into the shaping of the final product.

“The new Web site has been met with rave reviews,” said Nelson, who has helped coordinate the Huskies’ home page since 1996. “The increased use of images has made a major impact on the appearance of the site, and the navigation improvements make it much more user-friendly.”

“The Web site has become one of the St. Cloud State Athletics Department’s most effective marketing tools,” Nelson said. “The site is constantly being updated with complete team information, results and statistics.”

Features of the athletics Web site include links to live audio and video streaming of select competitions, on-line forms for prospective student-athletes interested in becoming Huskies and complete information on tickets for home athletic events.
