Wellsboro, PA - Circle W Sports, the new name in the game for High School sports, and Selinsgrove will be entering into a partnership to build and maintain a website for the school's athletic programs.
The new website will update all of the past performances from Selingrove athletes along with covering current teams with articles, photos, and stats from Managing Editor Brett Crossley.
Throughout the summer Circle W Sports will work to update the site to include all of Selingrove's athletic history.
"The Selinsgrove Athletic Department is excited to partner with Circle W Sports to create an athletic website that will provide a wide variety of information," Athletic Director Justin Simpson said. "Each team will have a separate page with a roster of players, stats, and coaches information to make it easier for college coaches to review players bios and help them play at the next level. We are very excited to have all of our sports teams covered with write-ups about each event to help promote our team and school. By having this website we will be able to show the rich history we have here at Selinsgrove. I would like to thank everyone involved in helping us make this possible. Go Seals!"
Circle W Sports found its beginnings in 2006 when owner Ed Weaver launched WellsboroFootball.com, the flagship website promoting the Wellsboro Hornet Football team. The organization provides the latest up-to-date scores, statistics, and coverage in this region. Since 2006, WellsboroFootball.com has recorded over a half million page views and has spawned other websites including WellsboroAthletics.com, WellsboroBaseball.com, WellsboroBasketball.com, WellsboroXC.com, WellsboroGolf.com, WellsboroSoccer.com, WellsboroSoftball.com, and WellsboroSwimming.com. Each website provides player information, rosters, schedules, statistics, and history about each Wellsboro team.
Circle W Sports also runs and manages websites for PIAA District IV, the Northern Tier League, the Tioga County Sports Hall of Fame, Vaportrail 24/7, and the PIAA District 4 Football Coaches Association, provides statistical data to Pennsylvania Football News, WesternPAFootball.net, EasternPAFootball.com, Home Page Sports, Fox Sports Williamsport, and the Valley Sports Report, and has launched websites for Athens Foootball, Loyalsock Football, Southern Columbia Football, and Selinsgrove Football.
"We are happy to have Selingrove become part of the Circle W Sports family," Crossley said. "We will work hard to keep the site current and updated to include all of the accomplishments by Selinsgrove student-athletes throughout the year."
Circle W Sports Owner Ed Weaver echoed those thoughts, saying "We're thrilled to have the entire Seals Athletics Department come on board the Circle W Sports platform. We have been working with the Seals Football team for a year now to showchase their history and tradition and can't wait to offer that to the rest of Selinsgrove's student-athletes and teams starting this August. We had great meetings with Mr. Simpson and their Athletic Council throughout the fall and winter, and are glad they chose Circle W Sports as their official athletic platform."
