Glenn's Meredith Looks To The Future

The future looks very bright for Kier Meredith. The Glenn High senior, is busy finishing up his prep career with the Bobcats baseball team. He is currently ranked among the top five in

the Piedmont Triad 4-A Conference in six categories – batting (.443), slugging percentage (.714), runs (24), stolen bases (19), fielding percentage (.982), homers (2) and on-base percentage (.560). However, he’s keeping an eye on the upcoming Major League Baseball Draft which will be held June 12-14. Meredith, a speedy 5-10, 177-pound outfielder, is expected to be selected in the first three rounds of the draft. Meredith’s career at Glenn could end any day now.

Blevins has been an employees of the City of Winston-Salem for nearly 40 years and has coached and directed the lives of thousands of youth. Interestingly enough, Blevins’ life and mine are intertwined. We first met at the Red Shield Boys Club more than 50 years ago. We became close friends when the two of us were uprooted from our neighborhood schools of Anderson Jr. and Hill Jr. High during the first-year of forced busing in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system. .....More...

       

About Us

We cover all levels of play - youth leagues, recreational leagues, high schools, colleges and professional sports. Our emphasis is on getting sports news affecting residents of this community to the people. Our motto is “local people, local stories”.

Triad Sports Weekly is currently distributed in a variety of ways. One of our primary distribution outlets is through the local high schools (both public and private) and middle schools. Teachers, administrators, faculty and students look forward to the arrival of the new edition each week. Several of the local high schools have paid circulation exceeding 100 newspapers per week. The 17 local recreation centers also help with distribution. The newspaper is also available at the local YMCA’s.  Most of our advertisers also distribute complimentary copies of the newspaper to their customers.  Another means of distribution is at local sporting venues, where we have an opportunity to interface directly with our readers. In addition, our subscription base is increasing daily.  We have a subscription campaign that recently began and through it we plan to add 200 new subscribers each month. In addition, we recently began mailing newspapers out to selected zip codes in Forsyth County.

Readership:

Triad Sports Report is quickly becoming one of the county’s most well-read publications. To our readers - both young and old - the newspaper is like a breath of fresh air.  Our stories are usually up-beat and positive.  We focus on stories that are uplifting, inspiring and encouraging.  In today’s sports world, that is a welcome relief.  Our readers enjoy reading about young people who are making positive contributions in their communities and working hard to achieve academically and athletically. That’s why our issues are read from cover to cover.  Our advertisers benefit because our readers don’t skip over pages or stories.
