The 2015-16 season is here! In case you haven’t heard, MaxPreps is now the Official Statistician and Digital Media Partner for the Louisiana High School Athletic Association. MaxPreps and the LHSAA will be offering a publishing platform across desktop, mobile and tablet that will streamline the process of managing sports information from all member schools. The partnership enables all box score information published on MaxPreps to be automatically provided to the LHSAA for use in managing various initiatives including all LHSAA regular season standings, Power Ratings, statewide statistical leaderboards, post-season brackets, media publications and much more.
Coaches will be required to submit scores to MaxPreps no later 12:00am (midnight) after each game in order to accurately manage these LHSAA data-driven initiatives. You are not required to submit scores to both the LHSAA member site and MaxPreps. Coaches are only required to submit regular season Varsity schedules, please do not submit jamborees, scrimmages, or sub-varsity games on your Varsity schedule.
