'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.

The all-state and All-WPIAL boys and girls soccer teams have been released, and Springdale has been recognized for an outstanding year.

From the girls team, which won the WPIAL Class AA title and finished second in the state, senior forward Brittany Loveland and senior midfielder Alexa Sarsfield were named all-state and All-WPIAL.

The other local girls named All-WPIAL were Springdale's Sabrina Adams (Sr., GK), Ally Overly (Jr., MF), Casey Overly (Sr., MF) and Cayley Perrett (Sr., F), Deer Lakes' Paige Prato (Sr., F), and Fox Chapel's Jenny Hall (Sr., MF).

In local boys soccer, Fox Chapel senior forwards Kevin McKamish and Thad Madzelonka earned all-state and All-WPIAL recognition.

The All-WPIAL picks from the Springdale boys team that finished as WPIAL Class A runner-up were Ryan Francis (Jr., MF), Bryan Weimerskirch (Jr., F), and Evan Winklmann (Sr., D). The other local All-WPIAL selections were Burrell's Chad Trozzi (Sr., F), Kiski Area's Austin Lange (Jr., F), Knoch's Kevin Wood (Sr., F), and Plum's Jason Barbarino (Sr., GK) and Lou Ferragonio (Jr., D).

• Kittanning's hockey team has been dominating opponents this season after dropping from Class AA to Class A. The Wildcats are 5-0 and have out-scored their opponents, 57-14. They have won each game by at least four goals.

• Defending PIHL Open Class champion Ford City has found its groove on the ice after a rough 1-3 start. The Sabers have won their past four contests and are 5-3.
