Other sports websites receiving top-10 recognition in the Herald-Leader’s division included fellow McClatchy-owned sites at The Wichita Eagle and The State (Columbia, S.C.). The rest of the Top 10 were the Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette, the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion Ledger, the Knoxville (Tenn.) News Sentinel, the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star, the New Orleans Advocate, the Memphis Commercial Appeal and the Patriot News (Mechanicsburg, Pa.).
