WNC Sports Network
WNC Sports Network was founded in July 2017 by Canio Costanzo. WNCSN was started, in part, to give Western North Carolina High School student athletes the opportunity to showcase their on the field talents.
"After streaming the Mountain Athletic Conference basketball tournament this past year, we realized there is a void to highlight student athletes who don't play just football," explained Costanzo. "That's really how we started thinking about creating a regional network."
In conjunction with the AC Reynolds Booster Club, Costanzo created the Rockets Sports Network, audio streaming over 60 Reynolds High School games in the past two seasons. WNCSN will continue to audio stream the Rockets football games this year, along other football games involving teams from the MAC. In all, WNCSN will live audio stream over 65 football, basketball, baseball and softball games.
The MAC includes member schools AC Reynolds, Asheville, Enka, Erwin, North Buncombe, North Henderson, TC Roberson, Tuscola and West Henderson.
"We hope fans who can't attend these games will get the opportunity to root on their home school," said Costanzo. "Especially those who live out of the area and want to follow a granddaughter or grandson or a nephew or niece. This gives them the opportunity to do just that."
The first games will be live audio streamed beginning on August 18.
