The summer Olympics are now in the rear-view mirror but the local high school sports season is well underway and Naperville Community Television has teamed up with Continental Motors to bring viewers a new web-based sports competition and an opportunity to vote for their favorite Play of the Month at NCTV17.com.
Since it began six years ago, Naperville Sports Weekly has been covering the varsity sports from all six Naperville area schools and giving viewers the weekly highlights and scores. During each show the NCTV17 sports team selects one game changing moment as the “Play of the Week.” Starting in September, it’s the community’s turn to make their voice heard. For one week each month, viewers are invited to go to NCTV17.com, check out the eight Play of the Month finalists and then vote for their favorite. The fans’ choice will be announced at NCTV17.com.
“This is what NCTV17 is all about, bringing sports coverage of our local high school teams right to the community,” said Executive Director Liz Spencer. “We’re excited to kick off this new program with the generous support of Continental Motors and give our viewers an opportunity to get involved and show their support for these athletes!”
In addition to airing on Channel 17 at 5:30 AM, 8 AM, 1 PM, 6:30 PM, 11 PM and 1 AM, Naperville Sports Weekly can also be viewed online at NCTV17.com through simultaneous streaming and the highlights can be watched on NCTV17’s Facebook and YouTube channel. The “Play of the Month” will run throughout the 2012-13 academic school year.
NCTV17 is located at 127 Ambassador Drive, Suite 103 in Naperville.
