Shasta County Sports covers varsity athletics for 10 high schools and one junior college, serving as the source for local sports news in rural Northern California where sports coverage from the newspaper, television and radio has dropped off due to corporate constraints. Two of the co-founders have a combined 25 years of experience covering sports for a daily newspaper (one of which won an APSE award in the mid-2000s) while the other pair of co-founders bring another 10 years of experience as multimedia industry experts and we aim to accurately connect the community through our coverage.
