Hilda Huang (‘13), The Viking sports magazine’s business manager, won first place in the annual Art Rosenbaum Sports Writing Scholarship Awards for her story “Running After Dark,” which she wrote last fall about long distance running.

Huang will accept the award along with a $2,500 check at a pre-game ceremony held at AT&T Park before the San Francisco Giants take on the Washington Nationals on August 15.

Rosenbaum, a former San Francisco Chronicle columnist and sports editor, started the scholarship 21 years ago in the hope that it would encourage high schools to continue to offer journalism programs for students.

Huang will be the third Viking staffer to accept the first place award.  Ian Kelly won for his story “Forgotten Ones” in 2008 and Noah Sneider won it for “Third Time’s the Charm” in 2009.

“I’m very proud to see the legacy of fine sports writing that The Viking puts forth,” Viking advisor Ellen Austin wrote in an e-mail. “It’s also testament to who we are that both our young men AND our young women are honored for the ability to tell strong sports stories.”
