QuinnipiacBobcats.com and Athletics' Social Media Sites Continue To Reach New Highs

 

The Official Website of Quinnipiac Athletics - QuinnipiacBobcats.com - as well as the department's multiple social media websites, hosted record-setting traffic for the 2013-14 academic year. 

"The success of all of our teams this past year, combined with our increased use of all possible digital platforms has shattered our records for visitors' traffic to our numerous sites," Director of Atheltics & Recreation Jack McDonald said. "I particularly want to thank our Sports Information and Information & Technology staffs, as well as our many fans for posting excellent, and timely, content to all our sites and networks. In addition to our excellent teams, our staffs and fans also had a year we will never forget!"

Quinnipiac Athletics enjoyed an incredible year that featured its first season as members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference that culminated in regular-season and tournament championships for Quinnipiac's field hockey, men's soccer and women's tennis teams.
