Website Background

WellsboroAthletics.com was started in August 2010 from a vision by former assistant football coach Ed Weaver and former Head of Athletics, and former head football and track coach Mike Pietropola. Ed always wanted the chance to view his season statistics so in August of 2006, he started WellsboroFootball.com to make statistics, scores, and information available to the local community, college recruiters, and football fans throughout the world. Knowing the popularity of WellsboroFootball.com, Mike pitched the idea to Ed for a district-wide website covering all athletic programs, and the project was off and running.

Booster Club Background

The Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club is a volunteer organization of parents, coaches, and supporters of Wellsboro High School sports. We raise money throughout the year to be used to support our High School athletes and ensure that they have the necessary tools to compete in their chosen sports. One way we raise funds is through the advertising of area businesses.

Previously, we have had Athletic Program books that were sold at all sporting events beginning with the football season and ending with the track and field season. During recent years, the distribution of these programs had decreased significantly. Last year, there were only 50-60 programs sold. With the creation of the Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club website in 2010, there is a new opportunity for advertising and supporting this organization. There are, on average, 12,800 hits per month on this site. There is much more exposure to this site than through the use of the program books.

The Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club is excited to announce our new program for online advertising starting in 2013.
