ATHLETICS | LMU Athletics has launched a redesign of their official website, LMULions.com, offering a sleek design that caters to an enhanced online experience. The fresh look, the accessible and clear navigation, and the responsive design adapt seamlessly to the user’s device, whether desktop, tablet, or mobile.
The revamped website features larger photos and a media wall featuring Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube posts in a larger and easier to view format on both the homepage and sport-specific pages. From the new media wall, fans can instantly follow @LMULions and all 22 sport programs across platforms. LMU Athletics teamed up with industry leader SIDEARM Sports for the redesign.
Student-athlete bios will also feature a new look, including links to related articles, action photos of student-athletes, and quick access to season and career statistics. Fan favorites such as the composite schedule, photo galleries, videos from the LMU Sports Network and team statistics will all be easily accessible and presented in innovative new ways. Live streaming from LMU athletic events will continue to be available for free through a partnership with TheW.tv and the West Coast Conference.
