Hawaii Prep World

It is the hot topic of the fall high school sports season and, no, it isn’t a pass-happy quarterback, a high-flying outside hitter or a fleet-footed cross country runner.

It’s a website.

It’s hawaiiprepworld.com and it has fans, parents, athletes – both current and from the past – flocking to it. Since its relaunch in August, the high school sports website run by the sports staff of the Star-Advertiser has taken off.

“We’re getting a lot of feedback. The response has been great and people are really excited about it,” says Adam Sparks, the SA staffer credited with upgrading the web design of an old site and who now helps maintain it. “A lot of people have contributed. Everybody here has had a hand in it.”

The site features current video highlights, blogs, statistics and game stories, and some in sports that don’t get as much play in the newspaper. But one of the most talked about parts of the website is its historical archives that have started with football.
