The Associated Collegiate Press handed The Hatchet a first place award Saturday for best multimedia sports story of the year.
Pieces were judged on innovation, reporting and technical quality. The Hatchet’s Gabriella Demczuk took the top award for her coverage of the Baltimore Grand Prix.
She also picked up a third place honor from the Society of Professional Journalists for the same video in the spring.
The Hatchet was also named a finalist for the Pacemaker award, considered the Pulitzer Prize of collegiate journalism, in best four-year non-daily newspaper category.

The Associated Collegiate Press announced recipients of its 2010 Pacemaker Awards this weekend, and The Hatchet placed in three categories: feature writing, ad design and online.
The Hatchet’s website and Web presence received a nod in the “Large-school Newspaper” category. The ACP does not give out first, second or third places in the online category.
The feature story, which received an honorable mention, was written by former metro news editor Hadas Gold and current staff writer Tamara El Waylly. The story focused on three students who were detained in Ethiopia in 2009.
An ad promoting The Hatchet’s annual student coffee house also received an honorable mention. The ad was designed by former Managing Director Tim Gowa.
The Pacemaker awards are some of the most coveted in collegiate journalism.
