We have liftoff; you have instant access
Sun., Sept. 1, 2013
We launched our new high school sports website on Friday night and the feedback has been tremendous. This joint effort between The Spokesman-Review, KHQ and SWX has produced a site that brings together our collective resources so that browsers can find everything about area high school sports in one spot. On Friday at NWPrepsNow.com, you could watch the Capital at Post Falls football game on live streaming video with Sam Adams and Bill Ames. If you wanted to see results of the Friday night games, complete with boxscores and a game story, it was just one click away. All of our content from the recently published football special section can be found on the site. On the home page you could find an SWX video of University High School coach Rob Bartlett talking about how his staff tries to change up the routine of practice. There is a video of Washington State’s newest recruit, big offensive lineman Jordan Rose of Freeman. If you’re interested in just one school, you can navigate to the school’s link where you will find the schedules for all the fall sports and any story, photo or video that has included that school. This Friday will be our big test. There will be nearly 40 area football games and we plan to get every boxscore and every story. The game of the week will be Ferris at Central Valley. SWX will have the game live on TV and streaming video. We will staff the game with a writer and a photographer and will present a big-picture show after the game. During the week we will feature the Mt. Spokane quarterback making yet another comeback from injury. Greg Lee will have a column on the must-see games of the year and Lee and Adams will make their weekly football picks. We want to be your choice for high school sports coverage. If you have a story idea, please pass them to us.
