Contributing writer/photographer Scott Hopkins earned six awards in the San Diego Press Club contest.

Hopkins awards were first place for Sports Writing: “PLHS Hires New Football Coach”; and Breaking News: “Couple Rescued After Dark at Sunset Cliffs.”

Second place for Education Writing: “New Principal Named at PLHS”; Profile Writing: “PLHS Student Rescues Drowning Couple”; and Still Photography – Sports: “Pointers Slide Into League Title.”
