The Record took home top honors Friday evening at the Southeast Texas Press Club Awards.

Photographer Lawrence Trimm received a first place trophy for his sports photo of a West Orange-Stark sprinter preparing to run a race.

Trimm captured the runner as he was leaving the starting blocks.

Reporter Debby Schamber also took home a first place trophy in the feature story category.

Schamber's award winning story was titled Against all odds: the will to live shines through.

The story told of Adam Doiron who was a passenger in a tractor trailer which was involved in a wreck and burst into flames on Interstate 10.

Doctors gave him a 10 percent chance of survival but his will to live remained strong in spite of the many hurdles ahead of him.
