HANOVER, Ind. – The Hanover College Athletics Facebook and Twitter accounts have recently reached the 3,000-followers milestone.

The Panther athletic social media accounts have enjoyed success over the past two years, with the Facebook and Twitter pages each earning over 3,000 likes and followers respectively. Currently, the athletics' Instagram page, which is a newer account, has jumped up to almost 700 followers.

D3SocialMedia, which is a website that generates an index score based on follows/likes compared to the institution's enrollment, has Hanover Athletics ranked among the top 25 scores at 7.0249. The HC index score is the highest in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference and trails on Wabash for the top spot in the state of Indiana.

Hanover also sits fourth among regional institutions in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, North Coast Athletic Conference and Ohio Athletic Conference, trailing only Mount Union (Ohio), 12.0429, Wabash, 8.4667, and Olivet (Mich.), 7.2571.

The Hanover Athletics social media accounts have become a one-stop shop to find news releases, score and schedule updates, game previews and recaps, and an inside look at the day-to-day operations of our 20 athletic teams.

Hanover sports information director, Tyler Jester, is grateful for all of the support the social media pages have gained recently, "Our staff is extremely pleased with the way our social media pages have grown since the beginning of the 2015-16 season. We cannot thank our fans enough for all of the positive support they have given us and we plan on continuing to grow our social media presence in the future."
