Tweets have their place in high school sports, especially on busy game nights. With 140 characters, however, there’s only so much abbreviating one can do.
Major content initiatives, such as state rankings packages, feature stories, all-state teams, preseason honor squads and historical features, are extremely important. Those are necessary, fun and sometimes challenging, but they’re hard to produce quickly and we want to keep pace with the quickly changing, social media-driven high school landscape.
In order to do that today on CalHiSports.com marks the debut of the Cal-Hi Sports Insider, our daily blog. This will be the landing spot for those news items that just can’t be condensed into a tweet and those that we want to break quickly and effortlessly.
The first five entries on our new Cal-Hi Sports Insider Blog are below:

Preview of Sunday’s NorCal Clash boys basketball event. CLICK HERE.

The three primary writers of Cal-Hi Sports – editor Mark Tennis, managing editor Ronnie Flores and San Francisco Bay Area associate editor Harold Abend – will all be blogging on the Cal-Hi Sports Insider. It’s the place we’ll use for breaking news, college commitments, injury updates, and just good ‘ol quick comments on the hottest topics. We’ll also use the blog to preview content items and events or tell you if any of our normal content schedules have to be changed.
To longtime followers of Cal-Hi Sports, it’s going to be Prep Notes With A Twist basically every day of the year.
Stockton office assistant Paul Muyskens will aid in the compilation of blog items.
Harold Abend, meanwile, will handle primary blogging responsibilities for the CIF Central Coast, CIF North Coast, CIF Oakland and CIF San Francisco sections. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is intended to be a free-flowing blog, however, so you never know what any of us may write about on any given day!
We hope everyone likes this next step in the evolution of CalHiSports.com. We’re just getting started.
