QR codes replace team rosters, save paper
For those who remember the old saw “You can’t tell the players without a scorecard,” well, now you can. At least, you can if you’re a Gryphons fan.
That’s because Lisa Hogan, assistant to the athletic director at Greenhills, has created a QR code fans can scan to get the latest team rosters. The girls basketball team was the first to use the new system, but Hogan plans to use QR codes to publish rosters for all athletic contests moving forward.
“This is so much better than printing programs that just end up getting recycled,” Hogan said. “It’s a lot less wasteful.”
All that’s needed to use the new system is a QR scanner app. Several free versions are available for both smartphones and tablets. After fans scan the code, Hogan said, the roster saves to their devices.
“I’m still coming up with good places to post them,” Hogan said of the QR codes. “I’m just glad to be able to find such a good use for them.”
