Potter, who was named the 2019 Wyoming sportswriter of the year by the National Sports Media Association in January, also finished in the Top 5 in the APSE contest for beat writing and multimedia.

Potter joined the Star-Tribune in September 2018 after a stint at the Oxford (Mississippi) Eagle.

In addition to Potter’s awards, the Star-Tribune finished in the top 5 in two photo categories. Cayla Nimmo placed second in the action photo category and Josh Galemore, who now works for the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, Arizona, placed fourth in the feature photo category.

The Star-Tribune also placed in the Top 5 in the APSE daily section and special section, was Top 10 in the Sunday section and earned honorable mention honors for its website.
