The Salt Lake Tribune’s sports section has once again been recognized as one of the best in the nation.

The Tribune’s sports staff this past week earned five top-ten awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) during the organization’s annual winter conference in Indianapolis. The Tribune was honored as one of the ten best daily and Sunday sports sections for newspapers with a print circulation between 75,000 and 175,000.

Tribune sports staffers won three writing awards.

Gordon Monson garnered his second top ten award for column writing, while fellow columnist Kurt Kragthorpe got a top ten nod in the projects category for his mid-summer "Seven Levels of Angels" series that chronicled different aspects of the Los Angeles Angels and their six minor league affiliates — including the Salt Lake Bees and Orem Owlz.

Staffers Aaron Falk, Chris Kamrani, Tony Semerad and Kragthorpe also earned top ten honors in explanatory writing for their package of stories on the huge impact the state’s growing Pacific Islander population has had on high school and college football in Utah.

APSE winners in each writing category, to be named in the coming weeks, will be honored during the group’s summer conference in Washington D.C.
