The Associated Press Sports Editors have announced this year's award winners. It's a contest with lots of winners, but the Enquirer doesn't get much.

In the Enquirer's class -- papers with circulation 100,000 to 250,000 -- there were 30 awards given for writing and 30 awards for sections. The Enquirer won no awards for writing or sections, coming away with three of 30 "honorable mentions" for writing and one of 30 honorable mentions for sections. There are also five awards for investigative sports reporting, and the Enquirer was shut out there, too. That's a decline from last year: In sections, the Enquirer won an award for best special section and two honorable mentions, and in writing, one award.

Overall, Sports is the best section in the Enquirer, and Sunday's baseball section was very good. This awards performance, though, is disappointing.
