The North Carolina High School Athletic Association and MaxPreps.com, the online high school sports leader and a CBSSports.com site, have signed a partnership agreement for the next three years, NCHSAA officials have announced. The selection of MaxPreps.com as the Associations “Official Statistician and Digital Media Partner” will give NCHSAA member schools a single location to report all Box Score information.
MaxPreps.com provides schools with a publishing platform which allows schools to keep their statistics in real time along with mobile extensions and easy-to-use stat keeping interfaces for each sport. The NCHSAA will use the data collected from the MaxPreps.com platform to help to manage their regular season standings, post-season qualifiers, state record book, NCHSAA stat leaderboards, media publications, and much more. Schools will need to update their Box Score information on MaxPreps.com after each contest in order to efficiently manage these initiatives.
“The North Carolina High School Athletic Association is pleased to renew its partnership with MaxPreps and expand our existing relationship. We anticipate that the utilization of the various MaxPreps technologies will streamline our reporting and playoff qualification processes and enhance efficiency across many of our Association initiatives,” said NCHSAA Commissioner Davis Whitfield.
MaxPreps.com, the nation’s most visited site for high school sports information and results, has been on the prep sports scene since 2002 and successfully partnered with other state athletic associations.
