Both championship games will be fully staffed and produced by students in the Springfield Communications and Sports Journalism program and will feature play-by-play and color commentary, multiple camera angles, and enhanced graphics throughout the broadcast. Stretch Internet will provide the live stream of the broadcasts.
“The NEWMAC is excited to offer our NEWMAC Championships via a live streamed and fully produced broadcast,” NEWMAC Executive Director Patrick Summers said. “Any opportunity to highlight our student-athletes and our member institutions is one that we will embrace. I would like to thank the Springfield College Department of Communications and Sports Journalism, specifically Chief Information Officer, Danny Davis, and Digital Media Coordinator, Ray Laferriere, for working with us to produce the men’s and women’s lacrosse championship games. We hope that we can extend this opportunity to more championship events in the future."
