Rihssports.com was launched in March 2002 as a culmination of a goal of mine to serve RI high school sports fans in two primary areas:
It is with mixed emotions that I have made the decision to take a step back and cease the second item above as of the fall 2015 season.
Rihssports.com is a one-man operation run by a fan like all of you. Throughout its decade-plus life, no financial gain was ever derived. The goal of the site was never to make money: it truly was a labor of love by a fan trying to help other fans born out of a frustration involving the lack of historical information online. In fact the cost of hosting the site has made this a money-losing endeavor ;-) but I've gained so much more from the friendships built and the rewards of satisfying a need.
This was not an easy decision for me to make. I would've liked to continue for the sake of maintaining the continunity/original mission of the site as well as for the sake of all of the fans who told me of the value they obtained from the site. Maintaining daily standings is a sizable investment in time especially for one individual. I feel like the time is right for me to take back some time in this busy life of mine: back in 2002 the few online resources that did maintain daily standings were incomplete, unreliable, and erratic. That is no longer the case. Both the RIIL and Providence Journal are but two. A full list can be found on the left hand side of the sports' pages. Additionally, the daily grind was leaving its inevitable impact on me.
However, I remain committed to not only ensuring rihssports.com remains online and not only that existing historical information remains available, but also that at the conclusion of each sports' regular season I will upload the final standings.
My goal is to continue maintaining daily postseason results for each sport for the time being. Bottom line is all information currently online will remain there and for the foreseeable future I will continue to add the latest seasons' info at that season's conclusion.
I don't know what the future holds. The decision to cease maintaining daily standings may be a temporary one or perhaps I may need to scale back further and cease the daily updating of postseason results. However, my passion as a fan remains as strong as ever, matches all of yours, and will keep me motivated in ensuring this site and its content is available.
Thank you to all of you for supporting me and teaching me so much. The passion of the RI high school sports community is something that has touched my life more than you may know. As always, I welcome your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
