Led by La Mesa-Mount Helix Patch with 10 prizes, local Patch sites won 24 awards Tuesday night in the San Diego Press Club’s 39th annual Excellence in Journalism Awards.

Patch picked up nine first-place plaques at a dinner that also honored retired local TV news veteran Hal Clement, public relations executive Barbara Metz, media lawyer Guylyn Cummins and the staff of the Southwestern College Sun, which fended off a college administration attempt to shut down the student paper. Some 400 people attended the sold-out dinner with the theme “Strength in Numbers” at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park. Club executive director
