NCHSAA, MaxPreps.com Continue Partnership
CHAPEL HILL – The North Carolina High School Athletic Association and MaxPreps.com, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive provider of high school sports content and information, have entered the second year of their agreement. The contract began with the 2008-09 school year.
The designation of MaxPreps.com as the NCHSAA’s “The Official Statistician and Media Partner” was established to give North Carolina schools a single platform on which to report scores and game statistics, while providing them with prominent regional and national recognition through a variety of MaxPreps.com content mediums.
MaxPreps.com’s nationwide blend of editorial, photo and video content provide hard-earned recognition for the countless hours that both student-athletes and coaches dedicate to their high school athletic endeavors.
“We have been very pleased with the relationship we have formed with MaxPreps.com,” said Charlie Adams, executive director of the NCHSAA, “not only in the area of scores and statistics but also with the photography services which are supplied at our state championship events. The NCHSAA strongly encourages all of its member schools to have the stats of their appropriate teams entered with MaxPreps.com.”
MaxPreps.com, a Cameron Park Calif.-based company that was purchased by the CBS Corporation in 2007, will provide every NCHSAA member school with its own free and easy-to-use schedule and statistical program for football, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, baseball and fast pitch softball.
The MaxPreps.com data system can automatically generate league and conference standings in North Carolina while compiling state statistical leaderboards in a wide variety of categories.
