The San Antonio Express-News sports department won four national Top 10 awards at the annual Associated Press Sports Editors contest, which concluded Sunday.
The daily sports section was named one of the 10 best in the E-N’s 75,001-175,000 circulation category.
The E-N also won Top 10 honors in Multimedia for coverage of Tim Duncan.
Writers Mike Finger and John Whisler finished in the Top 10 for breaking news and features, respectively. Finger, who was recently promoted to columnist, was cited for his coverage of Charlie Strong’s ouster while Whisler’s story on a boxing cutman was honored. Judges will pick an overall winner in each of the writing categories later this spring.
More than 60 sports editors judged the 2016 entries in Orlando.
