'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

It wasn't really a banner day for the local teams that participated in the two WPIAL Class AA Boys' Team Golf Semifinals.

However, for players like Yough's Alex Patricio and Charleroi's Gunnar Riley, the day wasn't a total loss.

Yough, Charleroi and California all took part in the semifinals and neither team advanced to the team championships, scheduled for Thursday on the Gold Course at Cedarbrook Golf Course.

However, in the semifinal at Indian Run, while California and Yough finished seventh and eighth, respectively, Patricio was the overall low golfer, shooting a 3-under par 687.

Patricio took medalist honors over Waynesburg's Loren Dukate, who was second with an even-par round of 71.

At Donegal Highlands, Charleroi finished ninth in the 10-team field. However, Riley shot a more than respectable 76 on the par-72 course.

Individually, Riley finished tied for third with Kittanning's Jordan Klodowski, four strokes behind medalist Matt Moore of Winchester Thurston, who shot 72, and three strokes behind Sewickley Academy's Keenan Hickton, who had a 73.

At Indian Run, Burgettstown finished first with a tem score of 417, followed by qualifiers Freeport (418) and Shenango (425).

California, which had a team score of 447, was led by Michael Luketich with an 82.

Yough finished with a team score of 449.

At Donegal Highlands, three teams qualified, including Sewickley Academy (387), Neshannock (417) and Winchester Thurston (428).

Charleroi's team score was 468.

For Charleroi, Chris Schaum had a 92, Mike Kondratik a 95, Steve Iacovino a 97 and Josh Sidary a 108.

Cedarbrook will also host the WPIAL Class AAA Boys' Team Golf Championship on Thursday.
