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.
