Ames, Iowa - An athletic statistics application developed by Global Reach Internet Productions has been selected by the Iowa High School Athletic Association for statewide use by Iowa's high schools. The application, developed for Eagle Grove, Iowa-based Stats & Go (www.StatsAndGo.com), provides a powerful online service that greatly simplifies the process of recording, tabulating, publishing, and accessing comprehensive sports statistics for everyone involved in amateur athletic leagues.
Stats & Go allows coaches to record and publish statistics completely online; reducing the time the process takes from hours to minutes. Stats & Go also automatically compiles and publishes these stats to media outlets, meaning student athletes from all high schools in the association will get the publicity and recognition they deserve. Moreover, students, parents, and fans can track their favorite student athletes and teams from anywhere simply by accessing www.StatsAndGo.com.
"Stats & Go greatly simplifies the entire reporting and publishing process, and provides a much more efficient means of identifying statistical leaders in a given sport, " said Bud Legg, Information Specialist with the IHSAA. "Among the benefits we foresee in adopting Stats & Go is that it affords coaches the ability to promote their players, sports, and schools on a statewide level."
"Gaining the endorsement of the IHSAA is very exciting," said Al Miller, Vice President of Athletic Relations with Stats & Go. "We have registered teams and leagues from across the country, but the IHSAA is the first organization of its type to formally endorse Stats & Go for statewide use. The benefits not only will affect coaches and statisticians, but also players, families, and fans. Members of the media will no longer have to wait for faxes, meaning student athletes will get timely recognition that excellence deserves."
