Upcoming special sections in The Record

Early April is always an exciting time in the newspaper business, as the winter season is wrapping up and the spring season is just about to begin. It also means that we at The Record have a number of special sections coming your way in the coming days.

Chris Fitz Gerald, our high school lacrosse beat writer, will be publishing his season preview stories for boys and girls lax this Sunday, April 11.

Monday April 12, I will have baseball and softball season preview stories in the paper.

Tuesday, we will publish the annual All-City boys basketball team. The girls All-City team will run in Wednesday's (April 14th) paper. I also plan on shooting some video during our photo shoot.

Our All-Area boys and girls basketball teams will be published in the paper on Sunday, April 18.

Blog posts will compliment the printed stories soon after their publication.

During the spring season, we also plan to have regular feature sections in addition to our daily features and game coverage.

Ryan Kircher will be helping us out on a part-time basis, writing track and field stories and providing a list of things to watch in the week ahead every Friday.

Sundays, Chris Fitzgerald will have a regular lacrosse column and league standings and stats.

Mondays, I will be bringing you baseball and softball standings, columns and features.

As time permits, I will make and post as many videos as I can. We have a new CEO of our corporate chain and a new Publisher here at The Record and both of them are leading our jump into the digital age. You can keep up with The Record's coverage of high school sports here at the blog, on the main web page at www.troyrecord.com, on Twitter at http://twitter.com/troyrecordsport, on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/TroyRecordSports and through the Off the Record podcast, which you can download on iTunes by clicking here.

We're doing our best to get you the news in the quickest and most accurate fashion possible through whichever channel is easiest for you to consume. Our news staff did an exemplary job with the RPI siren story today. You can read more about that here in Jim Murphy's blog.

Whatever you had previously thought about The Record, please think again. This is quickly becoming a brand-new news organization. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me (through the comments or the email address above right) with your questions or comments on how I can improve the high school coverage here at Off The Record.
