June 15, 2017 — Best of GateHouse
2016 Sports section or page: Division C
First place: Chris Easterling and Joe Mitchin, The Independent, Massillon, Ohio
The Independent makes outstanding use of shared GateHouse content resources, combined with strong local-local reporting, to produce a community newspaper section that would be worthy of a metro-circulation audience. Well done.
Second place: Alan Ford and Gabe Whisnant, The Star, Shelby, North Carolina
Third place: Staff, The Shawnee News-Star, Shawnee, Oklahoma
