  Staying Connected: PTHS 209 Sports Stream Live on iHigh.com  
     

Forest Park, IL...First Proviso Township High Schools connected with the community via Facebook and Twitter, now PTHS 209 sports will stream live on the World Wide Web via iHigh.com.

The Proviso East Pirates and Proviso West Panthers will now compete with the world watching, as PTHS 209’s athletic department works to make free broadcasts available online. The website, iHigh.com, provides schools, colleges and other youth-related organizations with free web tools and video streaming that connect sports and activities to the premier Global Youth Network. Through iHigh, students, coaches, parents and other supporters can easily connect with District 209 teams. They can also connect with other teams and athletes at the local, state and national levels. The new web streaming allows individuals to more easily follow District 209 sport statistics, and activity schedules. The website, iHigh, gives individuals another opportunity to support their individual schools. It also gives students an additional vehicle to showcase their talents.

“We have some very skilled and talented students in our athletics programs in District 209,” said PTHS 209 Board President, Chris Welch. “This extension of streaming sports live on the web will offer our students greater exposure and greater opportunities for college recruitment. Now individuals across the country and around the world can witness how phenomenal they [Proviso students] are. I think it will open a lot of doors for them while also giving parents and the community another avenue to get involved and enjoy our athletic programs.”

To watch PTHS 209 sports online, log on to iHigh.com and go to the Proviso West High School site where the games will be broadcasted in real time.
