Inside Athletics

 

The new FM Raiders athletics website has arrived!

 

Welcome to the new FM Raiders athletics website.

This is the official, first-ever website of Fulton-Montgomery Community College athletics. Its purpose is to give fans, players, potential players, and all other FM family and friends current and thorough information about the Raiders. 

The FM Athletic Department has joined with webhost PrestoSports to create this website. FM staff provide the content, and PrestoSports provides the mechanical aspects of the site.  FM staff have been uploading content for the website from the beginning of the 2013 fall sports season. Thus, viewers can look into the fall sports’ sections of the site to find thorough coverage of the volleyball, men’s soccer, and women’s soccer seasons. Likewise, viewers can visit the women’s and men’s basketball sections to catch up on full coverage of those seasons to date.

The site is not 100% complete, but we wanted to launch now in order to give site visitors much of the information they seek.  We will continue to complete and enhance the site during the final weeks of this semester and throughout the holiday break.

 

Sport Sections

Each sport has its own section. You will find the most current stories about each sport on the sport’s home page.  Near the top of each of the sport’s pages you can find links to that sport’s roster, schedule & results, news (all the news stories for that season), coaching staff, and multimedia.

The multimedia pages will feature photo galleries (photos that you can download) and videos.

There will also be a link for that sport’s archives. When the sport’s 2013-14 season ends, its roster, schedule & results, and news stories will be made available in the sport’s archives section.  As the years go by, the news, roster, and schedule & results for each year will be available in the archives sections.

 

Schedules and Results                                                                                    

The schedules for each FM sport are posted in this site. You can see them in each sport’s section within the site.  They are also incorporated into the main calendar that appears on the site’s home page. The schedule & results pages for each sport include the scores of each game and links to the game stories (“recaps”) and box scores for most games.

 

Rosters and Bios

The site contains rosters and player bios for the fall and winter sports. It will include similar information for the spring sports as soon as those teams are set. Bios of the athletics/coaching staff are also posted in the site.

 

Game Coverage – Scores

You will be able to see the scores of all games soon after they are completed. The scores will appear in the main calendar on the home page. They will also appear on each sport’s Schedule & Results page.

 

Game Coverage – Writeups

Most games will have a game story.  Usually the stories will include game photos, and some will include, or link to, videos.  It is our goal to post the game stories within a day after the game is played.

 

Website Staff

Content for the FM athletics website is provided by the Athletic Department.  Kevin Jones is FM’s Director of Athletics. Jay Holcomb is the FM Athletics Website Manager. He came to FM this year after serving as the athletics website manager for Herkimer CCC for the previous three years.

The site’s primary writer uses the pen name “C.J. Bonny” as a salute to the name “Raiders.” “C.J. Bonny” is an amalgam of the names of two real-life raiders who plied their trade in the early 1700’s: John “Calico Jack” Rackham and Anne Bonny. 

We think this website will give you more enjoyment of FM athletics than ever before. Enjoy the website.  Root for the Raiders!
