SCAC Partners with PrestoSports for New Online Scoreboard

SUWANEE, Ga. - With upgraded technology provided by PrestoSports, the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) introduced today an enhanced scoreboard feature for its fans.

The new scoreboard can be viewed here, or by clicking on SCOREBOARD along the top header of each page.

Events updating live in the PrestoSports Network (either with in progress scores or in progress stats) will update in the new scoreboard.

"We continue to be impressed with the advances that PrestoSports makes available to its clients," said SCAC commissioner Dwayne Hanberry. "We feel like this added value will only enhance the experience for the thousands of visitors who come to our website on a daily basis in search of the latest information regarding SCAC teams and student-athletes." 

The key to the new SCAC scoreboard is its ease-of-use and interactive capabilities. Some of the newest features of the scoreboard include:

  • a filter by sport
  • automatic refresh when events are in progress
  • integration with statistics
  • links to schedules, player stats and team stats
  • a mobile friendly view

"With our new live scoreboard, conferences can now give their fans a truly interactive experience when looking at scores and stats," said Greg Blake, Director of Site Developement for PrestoSports. "When you look around at other conference sites, there is no interactive scoreboard option like this available where all the scores and stats fit perfectly in the body of a site. During site designs, we always stress the importance of making sure users can easily navigate around your site, and this fits right within those standards."

Every event's score and stats will be updated in real time while the stat files are being pushed to the PrestoSports Network. And since it is not flash-based, SCAC fans will be able to follow scores from the scoreboard on their iPad and iPhones.
