Welcome to BLaxFive.NET

2016 Season

Welcome to the NEW BLaxFive.NET web site. With the addition of the GLaxFive.NET site for the girls, we have decided to use SportsFive.NET as the “Hub” for the various sports we may cover now, perhaps more in the future.

 Why the changes? There are a number of reasons. A top issue relates to the change in the way users look at the web site. In the last few years there had been a steady increase in the use of mobile phones and tablets and a decrease in the use of desktop computers. So we have restructured the pages to load faster and look better on the newer, smaller devices.

 We have also studied the way in which the site is used and have kept as much of the navigation to popular pages as we could. We have kept as much of the historical data as we could move, including game data, stories and player pages.
