Eastern Athletics Partners With PrestoSports

Eagles launch new site today (July 1)

PrestoSports, a leading provider of technology solutions to athletics departments at the nation's top institutions, has partnered with Eastern Washington University for EWU's new athletics web site at http://www.goeags.com.

Using a custom program, PrestoSports has transitioned content for the NCAA Division I institution from its current provider to the PrestoSports platform. The full site is launching today (July 1).

"We're pleased that Eastern Washington University has chosen PrestoSports to enhance the image and visibility of its athletics department," says PrestoSports COO Patrick B. Summers. "In 2009 we established a goal to extend our services to the Division I market, and we're excited to achieve that goal with another member of the Big Sky Conference."

Located in Cheney, Wash., Eastern Washington University marks the second Big Sky Conference member to partner with PrestoSports. The University of Northern Colorado moved to PrestoSports last summer and launched its redesigned site last fall.

"We are excited about the opportunity to partner with PrestoSports," said Eastern athletic director Bill Chaves. "Presto showed a tremendous level of excitement in wanting to partner with us as our official athletic website provider and that was a key reason for this relationship.  We look forward to helping each other become successful in the years to come."
