LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) has announced a partnership with Sportsgram, one of the largest internet sports broadcasters in Texas, to broadcast six of its conference championship events during the 2012-13 academic year.
This past February, Sportsgram produced and broadcasted the 2012 SCAC Swimming & Diving Championships in Rockwall Texas.
“On behalf of the member institutions of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, I am delighted to announce this partnership with Sportsgram,” said SCAC Commissioner Dwayne Hanberry. “We were very impressed with the work that Steve Glenn, Terry Gregory and the entire crew at Sportsgram did for us at the 2012 SCAC Swimming & Diving Championships. With their base of operation being so convenient to many of our campuses, it was a natural fit for our conference to utilize their services for additional conference championships this year.”
“The Sportsgram Network is very excited to continue our partnership and work with the SCAC,” said Steve Glenn, who is part of the ownership team of Sportsgram. “We are happy to provide these video-streamed broadcasts for the families and fans of these quality teams, programs and institutions.”
Almost 2,500 people watched – in real time – at least a portion of the 2012 SCAC Swimming & Diving championships via the Sportsgram-produced webstream.
“That is a remarkable number,” continued Hanberry. “SCAC institutions are nationally-recognized institutions of higher learning and they attract the best and the brightest from across the country. Realizing that not all of our fans can travel to be at our championships in person, these television-quality productions are a worthwhile investment. If all goes well, we hope to broaden the scope of these productions in the future.”
The first conference championship that Sportsgram will broadcast this season is the SCAC Men’s Soccer Tournament, which begins on Friday, November 2, and takes place on the campus of Trinity University.
