GW introduces new web site

The GW Athletic Department introduced its new official Web site last week. Previously, the GW site was on a domain and run by members of the Sports Information Department. The new site’s address is <a href:http://>> and will be maintained by Total Sports of Raleigh, N.C. This commercial arrangement will last at least two years.

The site will feature TotalCast, which means selected men’s and women’s basketball and GW baseball games will be broadcast on the Internet.

The new site will give us a truly professional and up-to-the-minute presence on the Internet for all Colonials students, fans and alumni to access and enjoy, Sports Information Director Brad Bower said in a University press release. There is no better way to follow GW athletics than to visit this site, other than being there in person.
