Special announcement to area coaches and athletic directors

August 2, 2013

Next week, as you well know, is the beginning the 2013 fall high school sports season and the Daily Times needs your help.

Please submit rosters, schedules and coaches contact information to the sports department prior to the start of each sport’s season. Once the season has begun, please remember to report scores as soon as the contest has been completed for publication in the next day’s edition of the Daily Times. All scores reported after the deadline for print — which is 9:25 p.m. Monday through Thursdays, 11:50 p.m. Fridays and 8:25 p.m. Saturdays — will be placed online at portsmouth-dailytimes.com and in the scoreboard section of the next available issue.

The Daily Times sports department can be contacted in two ways. Sports editor Chris Slone can be reached at 353-3101, ext. 298, or cslone@civitasmedia.com. Sports writer Cody Leist can be reached at 353-3101, ext. 294, or cleist@civitasmedia.com.

Rosters, schedules and contact information can also be faxed to 353-4676. Please put “Attention: Sports Department” in the body of the message.

Whether it’s football, golf, soccer, tennis, volleyball or cross country, the Daily Times wants to provide the best coverage for all area high school sports and that means help from coaches, assistant coaches, athletic directors and parents.
