Athletics launches ‘Inside St. John’s’ online featurettes

Many athletic programs nationwide have limited the printing of media guides due to impending NCAA legislation to cut costs and “go green.”

Earlier this month, the
St. John’s Athletic Department
unveiled a series of
interactive video features on
RedStormSports.com called
“Inside St. John’s.” Beginning
with men’s and women’s basketball, the video series gave alumni, fans, media, benefactors and others a behind-the-scenes look at all things Red Storm.

“The launch of the ‘Inside St. John’s’ Web sites keeps us on the cutting edge of an
ever-changing medium,” St.
John’s Athletic Director Chris
Monasch said. “The sites will assist us in our efforts to ‘go green’ and contain costs, and will also help us reach an even greater audience by giving these products a permanent online home.”

Each “Inside St. John’s” page contains links to rosters and biographies, schedules,
ticket information, archived
video, athletic traditions and
to social networking affiliates
like Twitter and Facebook.

Featurettes include a tour of Taffner Field House with Quincy Roberts of the men’s basketball team and a walk through Carnesecca Arena with Sky Lindsay of the women’s basketball team.

In the coming weeks, other “Inside St. John’s” pages will be launched, for baseball, softball, lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, cross country, and track and field,
