New preps site lets readers get in the game

Talk about giving Web readers what they want... The Salt Lake Tribune has unveiled a bold new site that focuses on local high school sports. The site makes it easy for readers to find the most relevant content quickly, and it looks pretty darn cool. (Note the iTunes-style reflecting graphics.)

Readers can localize the site to their favorite sport, school or team. Eventually, it will feature reader-submitted photos and stories, in addition to staff content. I particularly liked the prominent "GameTracker" feature. (Something we could easily emulate...)More on the site here.

Belo, parent company of our partner WCNC has a big high school sports site.

Check out the WCNC piece of the puzzle.

The CNC page has options to sort by sport, school, staff and reader-submitted photos. Also, options to search for staff or reader content.

Has anyone gone to see what cousin Chris Krewson is doing in Allentown? I'll get there some time, off deadline....
