When I was a freshman at Fairfield, sports editor Dan Akeson decided that it was time for The Mirror to add a sports blog, to provide further coverage of Fairfield Stags sports. With men’s and women’s basketball underway, the blog was started in the winter of 2007, with myself and fellow freshmen Keith Connors, Chris Simmons, Frank Romano and Michelle Morrison working on both the print and online staff.

With such a large and dedicated sports staff, the coverage went from good to great. Since the start of the blog, Keith,  Chris and I have expanded its features. We now cover men’s and women’s basketball games using CoverItLive technology, we have done practice updates and have even added video.

With the switch to WordPress, our old blog (www.mirrorsports.blogpsot.com) will serve simply as an archive. From now on this is the place to turn for daily Stags coverage, starting this week.

Each day the Mirror Sports Staff will have a new post online.

Check out the schedule for this week:

Tuesday: A Breakdown of the Columbus Day Weekend for Stags Sports

Wednesday: Coverage of the Women’s Volleyball Game against UConn

Thursday: MAAC Power Rankings (Soccer and Volleyball)

Friday: A Weekend Preview of MAAC Sports and Coverage of Women’s Soccer vs. Rider

Keep checking back with the Mirror Sports Blog as the fall seasons ramp up and the basketball seasons grow closer.
