Rhodes College Athletics Sports New Web Presence


Publication Date: 8/3/2007

Rhodes College Department of Athletics in partnership with Internet Consulting Services (ICS) of Syracuse, N.Y., is proud to announce the launch of its newly designed Web site – rhodeslynx.com

ICS has created a website for the Lynx with expanded marketing opportunities and fan-friendly updates, as well as colors, typography and imagery consistent with the college’s main site.  ICS’ SIDEARM technology powers the site which allows administrators to update content through the internet.

“We are very excited about our new site,” says Rhodes director of athletics Mike Clary ’77.  “The site looks great and our ability to quickly update our results from the road will allow us to keep up with the public’s thirst for instant information.”

Women’s soccer coach and athletics Web administrator, Bobby Lessentine ’98, and Christina Huntington ’96, the college’s Web project manager, have worked on the site with ICS that has a client list including collegiate conferences  and nearly 100 athletic clients from around the country.

Navigational and informational elements of the site include:  

  • Lynx news highlights and photos

  • an interactive events calendar

  • scrolling scoreboard information

  • team schedules and rosters

  • biographical information and photos of coaching staff and players

  • a visitor’s guide

In addition, visitors to the site can respond to polls and sign up for e-newsletters.

Rhodes is a NCAA Division III member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference and sponsors 10 women’s and 9 men’s varsity sports and 10 club sports.
