Site Updates:
 
Hello. I just wanted to let everyone know about a few updates and changes to the site.

1. The drop down site menu has been adjusted, with the addition of two new links: Front Page and My Teams. Consequently, those same button links have been removed from the sport and school page menus.

2. The My Teams part of the site has been updated to give you more control over your account. Here you will find options to change your password, your e-mail address, and the name you want displayed in the heading. You can manage your teams under the 'My Teams' button as you did before. The 'Schedules' function is not available yet, and will be a part of our Premium Account (more on that below.)

3. On each school page there is a new menu item - 'From the AD'. Here you will find important messages that the athletic departments from the different schools want to share with their athletes and fans.

4. The 'Front Page' menu also has a new addition, although it is not functional yet. The 'FAQ' section will provide general instructions on the various functions and uses of the site, as well as answer common questions.

My Teams Premium Account

In the near future you will have the option of upgrading to a Premium Account. For just $10 per year, you will double the amount of teams you can 'follow' to 10.

However, the biggest advantage of the Premium Account will be the 'Schedules' page, which will pull the schedules of all of the teams you follow into one convenient place.

Please be aware that you do not need to create an account to use MAScores.com, and with the free Basic Account you have access to all information on the site and can receive e-mail alerts regarding schedule changes for up to 5 teams of your choice.

Seeking Advertisers:
 
Great news. This fall all 12 schools in the Cape Ann League will be using the site for their scheduling. This means that coaches, athletes and their families, and fans will be visiting MAScores.com (CALScores) not only for varsity scores and standings, but for current and accurate schedules for all levels.

I am looking for businesses in each of the school communities to advertise on the site. For as little as $350 per year, an advertisement can be placed on the school page of your choice. There are options to place an ad on several school pages, as well as across all 12 school pages. You can also opt for 3 and 6 month terms.

MAScores.com is an incredible community asset. If you own a business in the communities served by the Cape Ann League, or know somebody who does, please consider advertising with me. Local advertising will allow me to keep the cost to the schools at a very low rate, as well as providing me the opportunity to continue developing the site and adding new features.

If you would like more information, I can be reached at chris@mascores.com or at 978-257-1545. Please spread the good word about MAScores.com, and consider advertising on the site. I truly believe you will get the most bang for you advertising dollars.

Happy 4th of July!

State Champions!:Lynnfield Girls Tennis & Masconomet Baseball
 
Congratulations to the Lynnfield Girls Tennis Team for winning the Division 3 State Championship. With a 4-1 win over Notre Dame of Worcester on Wednesday, the Lady Pioneers capped off an undefeated season with a perfect 21-0 record. This is also the third time in the last four years that the Div. 3 State title has been claimed by a Cape Ann League team, as Manchester-Essex took the crown in 2011 and 2013.

For the second year in a row the Masconomet baseball team traveled to Brockton to play in the Division 2 State Finals. Today, the Chieftains came home as champs as they thrashed Westwood 10-2 to finish their season with a stellar 22-2 record.

Many other Cape Ann League teams did very well in the state tournament this spring, and there is still the opportunity for the league to claim one more title. The Newburyport Girls Lacrosse Team will travel to Nickerson Field at Boston University on Saturday, to face Bromfield in the Division 2 State Finals. The game is set to begin at 10:30 AM. Best of luck to the Clippers!
