    The State freelance writer Isabelle Khurshudyan also was honored in the explanatory writing category for her story on how new regulations have helped prevent sudden cardiac deaths among high school athletes.

The State sports section has won “Triple Crown” honors for the second consecutive year in the annual Associated Press Sports Editors' writing and sections contest.

The State earned top-10 recognition for its daily and Sunday sections, as well as for its gogamecocks.com and thestate.com sports websites.

The APSE awards, voted on by sports editors from across the nation, honor work published in 2013.

Eleven newspapers in various circulation categories won Triple Crowns, including one other McClatchy paper, the Kansas City Star.

“Winning back-to-back Triple Crowns is a great honor,” Rick Millians, The State’s executive sports editor, said. “We’ve got a talented group of writers, editors and designers who consistently turn out excellent work.”

The State is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
