SabreAthletics.com Relaunched with New Look, Features

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (SabreAthletics.com) – The Marian University Athletics Department, in cooperation with PrestoSports, is pleased to announce the redesign and relaunch of SabreAthletics.com, the official website of Marian athletics. The partnership will provide Marian alumni and fans with the most comprehensive coverage of Marian athletics.

The new website will contain the same content previously available to fans, but with a fresh new look and added features that will make being a Sabre fan even more enjoyable. Fans of Marian athletics can count on SabreAthletics.com for their news, statistics, schedules, bios and historical information needs, while looking forward to a new viewer-friendly navigation system to go along with added video and photo features that will showcase their favorite student-athletes and teams.

“We are thrilled about our new partnership with PrestoSports and the opportunities going forward to provide more content and features, such as videos, photo galleries and mobile alerts, for our alumni and fans,” Director of Athletic Communications Luke Pattarozzi said. “The new look is sure to delight our fan base, while some new features will certainly make it easier and more exciting for fans to follow Marian athletics.”

The most noticeable difference in the new-and-improved SabreAthletics.com is the graphical redesign, which displays a headline slider feature that is one of the first of its kind among the 475 clients among the PrestoSports family. In a day and age where social media and video are prominent among sports coverage, PrestoSports has helped integrate these tools, such as Facebook and Twitter, in an easy-to-locate layout for Sabre fans.

Fans can also look forward to a fully functional mobile site that is compatible with any smart phone. The brilliant new feature can be accessed on the lower right-hand side of the website or from any mobile browser. The mobile integration also gives fans the ability to sign-up for Marian's weekly E-newsletter and frequent text message alerts.
