Tampa Bay Times' high school series honored

The Tampa Bay Times' high school sports staff recently was honored with the Award for Excellence in Coverage of Youth Sports.

Varsity Blues, a five-part series from July that examined the issues — budget cuts, outside competition, exposure — impacting high school sports today, garnered the national honor from the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism at Penn State. Past winners of the award include the New York Times, Boston Globe and author George Dohrmann.

The award recognizes media that display "creative, in-depth and innovative coverage of youth and high school sports — especially larger issues and trends related to those levels of athletic competition."

The Times' Sports department also netted an honorable mention from the Associated Press Sports Editors for the special section dedicated to former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warren Sapp's Hall of Fame induction.
