Fueled by a collective passion for prep sports, the Star Tribune and TST Media have combined their talents to create the MN Prep Hub Network. Utilizing TST Media’s industry-driving SPORT NGIN Web platform and the editorial expertise at the Star Tribune, sports fans can now follow all Minnesota high school sports at a professional level.
"It's been so exciting to see the reaction to 'the Hub' as it has evolved," said Carson Kipfer, TST Media COO, "People are truly in awe that high school hockey is being covered at such a professional level – with all of the online features thought to be reserved for the pros! It's reactions like these that are extremely rewarding for our design and development staff, as we continue to revolutionize online coverage of the sport of hockey in the state of Minnesota."
The “Hub” provides the prep sports community with real-time scores, standings, statewide rankings, individual stats and more. Teams also enjoy the ability to customize their pages on the “Hub,” with options that allow them to add unique articles, posts, photos and videos. Now, more than ever before, fans, scouts, recruiters and even grandma have a one-stop shop for all things Minnesota prep sports.
“With the Star Tribune, we were able to combine efforts with the region’s most respected and recognizable content creator to bring Minnesota prep players, parents, and fans a series of sports Hubs,” said Justin Kaufenberg, TST Media CEO. “We feel that the combination of their staff, reach and content, along with our technology platform and network has resulted in the best prep sports media properties in the nation…and we’re only just getting started!”
The partnership began with the goal of offering professional-quality and unprecedented timeliness to the Minnesota’s incredible sports community. Because our state’s athletes put so much time and dedication to the team, documenting their accomplishments with the MN Prep Hub is a great way to celebrate and build our rich prep traditions.
