By Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published April 15, 2001

St. Petersburg Times staff writers Antonya English, Darrell Fry and Roger Mills captured first place for Best Enterprise/Investigative reporting and John Romano finished first for Best Sports Event story in the 2000 Florida Sports Writers Association awards contest.

English, Fry and Mills won for their coverage of the racial-discrimination allegations against South Florida women's basketball coach Jerry Ann Winters and the charges of a coverup made against the athletic department.

Romano won for his story on swimmer Brooke Bennett of Valrico winning the gold medal in the 400-meter freestyle at the Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

Sunday sports editor Anthony Perez placed second in page design, and the Times finished second in General Excellence of Section in the Division I circulation category.

The independently judged annual contest recognizes the top writers, designers and sections in the association's three circulation divisions: 175,000 and over (Division I), 50,000-174,999 (II) and under 50,000 (III).
