FORT LEWIS COLLEGE TO UPGRADE WHALEN GYMNASIUM WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART NEVCO EQUIPMENT
GREENVILLE, IL, October 15, 2018 – Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado has selected Nevco to bring exciting new enhancements to Whalen Gymnasium, which includes a new Video Display and Scoring Solution.
Nevco will help deliver a new atmosphere to all 2,750 cheering fans with a brand new full color, 6mm LED Video Display and a 10’ full color 6mm LED Scorers Table. The video display, which will span over 9’H and 17’W, features over 387,000 vibrant pixels to engage fans from every angle. The 10’ LED scorers table allows Fort Lewis College to maximize their impact by bringing an additional 57,600 pixels to the Skyhawk’s courtside, offering them the ability to display advertising, graphics, virtual scoring, and more at the touch of a button. Hidden away from the fan’s eye, the video display and scorers table will be operated through Nevco’s proprietary Display Director™ Software, allowing the Skyhawks game-day operations to be easily managed through, one, universal operating system.
“We’re excited to be presented with the opportunity to help complete Fort Lewis’ vision for Whalen Gym,” said Eric Light, Nevco Director of Sales for Sports Video. “The new Nevco equipment will transform the facility and produce an exciting, elite game-day environment for players, fans, sponsors, and the surrounding community.”
Fort Lewis College will outfit Whalen Gymnasium with more upgrades, including a Nevco Model 2700 Scoreboard, locker room clocks, end-of-period back board lights, and SSC-T5 single-sided shot clocks to bring a professional experience to players and fans alike.
The 2018-19 season marks the 2nd straight year that Nike’s N7 program will partner with Fort Lewis College during their Native American Heritage Month activities. Nike’s N7 program is committed to helping organizations provide sport and physical activity programs to Native American and Aboriginal communities in order to help them lead healthier, happier, and more successful lives.
The Skyhawks basketball programs will sport N7 inspired uniforms and debut their new scoring upgrades at the home openers against New Mexico on Nov. 14. Check out the winning rendering photo below and be sure to check out nevco.com to see the live install photos!
