Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Boston.com today announced the launch of a new section devoted to “Boston Public Schools Sports.” The online section will focus on the top student-athletes in the city and include game coverage, statistics and feature stories. Sponsored by Suffolk Construction Company to raise awareness for their Boston Scholar Athlete program, the section will start this fall with complete coverage of soccer, football, cross-country and volleyball.
“We’ve developed a new online section that is clear and simple for readers to navigate so we can more prominently feature all of the unbelievable athletic talent in our city,” said Boston Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan. “The Globe and Boston.com sports staff covers these athletes year after year, often getting the opportunity to see them grow and develop, and now we can share this storyline more closely with readers.”
The brand new “Boston Public Schools Sports” page features stories, photos and video from The Boston Globe and Boston.com award-winning sports staff. Northeastern University graduate Justin Rice and Lasell College senior Mary Pavlu will spread out across the city to chronicle the best games, best stories and best athletes. And it doesn’t end with high school athletics. Middle school sports are also highlighted, showcasing the athletic talent in the city of Boston from youth through adolescence.
The section also features individuals that are true standouts in specific programs; for example, a profile of hearing-impaired East Boston football player Leo Parnell.
