To provide its fans with updated results and information on all Patriot sports, the Athletic Department has expanded its Sports Information Phone Hotline (x34074) to include services for all 22 varsity athletic teams.

The university-sponsored telecommunications tool is available throughout the country for people who want to keep up with their favorite Patriot teams and student-athletes. A prompt menu gives selections for each sport, and the voice mailboxes are updated within one hour following the conclusion of the most recent contest. The content of the broadcast-like sports report includes results, highlights, team records if applicable, some individual accomplishments, and notification of the next competition.

“We are excited about the success and wide use of our phone hotline,” says Tom O’Connor, director of athletics. “We have found it to be essential for family members and fans who do not have access to our web site, and it’s a useful tool that sometimes gets overshadowed by our expanded Internet services.”
