Times wins awards in '03 state contest

Published May 9, 2004

Joanne Korth led a group of six Times writers honored by the Florida Sports Writers Association last week for work published in 2003. The six writing awards were the most among the state's largest newspapers, with circulations of 175,000 or more.

Korth won first place in feature writing for her profile of Martha Nemecek, mother of race car drivers Joe and John. (John was killed in a truck crash during a race in 1997.)

Bucs writer Rick Stroud was a double winner, finishing second in the news category (Keyshawn Johnson's deactivation) and third in event coverage (Super Bowl).

Gary Shelton finished second in column writing.

Antonya English and John Barry won second place in enterprise reporting (coverage of Ron Zook's first season as football coach of the Florida Gators).

NFL writer Roger Mills earned third place in news coverage (interview with Joe and Meagan Jurevicius after the death of their son, Michael).

The Times also finished third for best Sunday section.
