Montevideo High School, a small high school located in Montevideo, MN, knew they needed to upgrade their decades-old scoreboards. When they were unable to get parts to fix their outdated metal-box scoreboards, they began exploring their options, and ScoreVision became the winning choice for their upgrade.
Since their installation in 2017, Montevideo High School has used their ScoreVision displays not only to elevate their game-day experience for every sport played in their gym, but they have also gotten creative with alternative ways to use the displays. The displays are being used for everything from graduation, practice, and live streaming, to parent meetings, bonding events, pep rallies, and dance competitions.
Activities Director Bob Grey also loves that the ScoreVision jumbotrons support every sport played in the Montevideo High School gym with sport-specific scorekeeping apps and scoreboard layouts. “It’s really nice that they’re custom to the activity that’s going on because we were trying to retrofit things. The basketball boards before were really kind of built for basketball. We used them for wrestling, we used them for volleyball. Now it’s specific to that sport so their scores are just as big, whether it’s basketball, wrestling, or volleyball – they’re all treated the same so they feel like they’re just as important as each other and they’re not just the other sport that uses the scoreboards that are for the basketball team.”
ScoreVision’s integrated digital ad sequencing technology has also played a big role in fundraising for the school’s athletic program. “Selling ads was the easiest ads I’ve ever sold, especially once people saw it,” said Grey. “I was charged by our school board to raise $35,000 in the next three years to help fund the board purchase and that was done in about three weeks.”
Most importantly, the students are excited about how the system has impacted their games, practices, and activities.
