W&L Athletics Announces Web Services Change

LEXINGTON, Va. – Washington and Lee University is pleased to announce that it is partnering with SIDEARM Sports to launch a new version of generalssports.com in the coming days.

W&L makes the move to SIDEARM following a 10-year partnership with Prestosports.  The site transfer will begin on Wednesday, October 16 and when complete, the same url (generalssports.com) will point to the Sidearm hosted site.

The new site will feature stats, schedules and rosters for all 24 of W&L's intercollegiate athletics programs and biographical information for the more than 500 student-athletes, coaches and staff members.

The SIDEARM site will also have its own newsletter function much like the Prestosports site.  If you wish to continue to receive emails with Washington and Lee athletics information, you'll need to sign up for the newsletters on the new site.  An email will be sent from the former email system explaining how to sign up once the change has occurred.

Acquired by collegiate marketer Learfield IMG College in June 2014, SIDEARM Sports is the nation's leading digital provider for college athletics. The company is based in Syracuse, N.Y., and was founded in 2000 by Jeff Rubin, who continues to lead the business. SIDEARM is trusted by some of the biggest brands in intercollegiate athletics, including 250 NCAA Division I programs and 56 Power Five athletic departments.

As a leader in collegiate athletic web solutions, SIDEARM Sports provides the software and technology that powers websites, mobile applications, live stats, social presence and video streaming for its school and conference partners. Clients applaud SIDEARM for its service, reliability and customization, and its easy-to-use interface allows schools to customize their content streams and digital presence.
