I had the pleasure of scoring Boise v. Purdue dual meet last Friday evening. This was a last minute assignment, but no matter. From scratch, setup took about ten minutes and most of that time was spent scouring the Internet for suitable team logos (thank you, Amanda). After the last match, I emailed the scorebook and box score to the team Sports Information Directors and posted the relevant reports to social media. Both officials praised the scoreboard layout and functionality.
