In standings released Wednesday by social media agency Varsity News Network (VNN), Berea-Midpark athletics was rated No. 8 out of over 2,000 schools in a national ranking table measuring several data points to determine digital media success.
We are honored to be recognized as one of the top sites in the country, and are excited to continue spreading the word about Titans Athletics” said Berea-Midpark Athletic Director Adam Howard.
VNN’s goal was to look back at how VNN Network schools performed in the context of their mission “connecting community through sport.” It’s not easy to assign a letter grade on how well an athletic department brings their community together around their sports programs, but through a calculation that combines several of the data points VNN has access to, they created a 2019 Report Card for every school across the VNN Network.
The Titans athletics department, which is routinely in the top 10 page views for VNN’s Ohio network each month, topped more than half a million page views (536,722) for 2019.
“Assistant Athletic Director Jon Adams, our coaches, and the rest of our department take great pride in sharing the good news that’s happening daily with our student-athletes” said Howard. “There’s no shortage of great news to share as our teams and student-athletes continue to represent our community. Whether it be through service projects, academic achievements, school leadership, and of course athletic achievements.”
Temple High School in Temple, Texas finished first in the national ranking table. Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Bethesda, Maryland finished second, while Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland finished third. Hampton High School in Allison Park, Pennsylvania ended in fourth and Arundel High School in Gambrills, Maryland rounded out the Top 5.
