Today, girls from across the state begin practicing for the upcoming high school basketball season.

So, it’s fitting that today, the Local Sports Journal is announcing it will publish a 28-page special section previewing all the girls and boys basketball teams in the area.

LSJ’s experienced sportswriters will be heading out to area schools beginning this week to talk with coaches and players as they begin preparation for their prep season. The section will be similar to the LSJ football tab, which was published back in August.

Included in the section will be team rosters, schedules as well as stories on each boys and girls team in the area.

Partnering up with the LSJ will be the Norton-Lakeshore Examiner, which will begin distribution throughout the area on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 28 and in the days to follow.

With the success of the football tab, Local Sports Journal decided to provide area high school basketball fans with that same type of in-depth coverage.

Stay tuned for more information on the tab as well as places to pick up your copy.
