By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11)

As we slowly close the book on the 2017-18 school year – well, the past nine to 10 months of coverage, to be exact – I thought this would be a good time to dish out some exciting new content news for Noontime Sports!

As seen in our Twitter poll below, it appears you, the fans and friends of our blog, would like to see some additional D3 coverage that includes some non-New England schools. And yes, I oblige!

So, starting in late-June/early-July, we will begin our preseason football coverage with getting to know some non-New England squads, while still continuing to produce blogs and podcasts on teams from our New England/Northeast region.

We may also sprinkle in some soccer coverage, too, so make sure to stay connected with us on social media as we begin the next phase of our content creation journey!

Finally, be on the lookout for some high school coverage going forward, too. We will aim to have some postseason tournament coverage on the site over the next few weeks in Massachusetts as local teams begin their quest for winning the ultimate prize: a state championship.

As always, make sure to stay connected with Noontime Sports on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and SnapChat!
