Buffalo News sports wins 'Triple Crown' in national sports editors contest

The Buffalo News sports department won the Triple Crown and three individual awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors during judging in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The News placed in the top 10 in daily section, Sunday section and sports website for newspapers with circulation of 75,001 to 150,000. To earn a Triple Crown, news organizations must be in the top 10 in three major categories.

In addition to the Triple Crown, three News staffers were honored.

Mike Harrington and Jay Skurski placed in the top 10 in beat writing. Harrington was honored for his coverage of the Sabres and Skurski for his coverage of the Bills. Judging is based on five pieces that reflect the breadth of beat coverage, including breaking news, analysis and in-depth features.

Photographer James P. McCoy was named Top 5 for long video (more than five minutes) as he chronicled his “Day in the Life” shooting the Bills game at the Cincinnati Bengals in October.
