'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 Gannon softball team swept the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division weekly awards recently. Senior Kirstie Cortazzo (Jeannette) earned PSAC Western Division Player of the Week honors, while freshman Olivia Gumbita (Latrobe) secured PSAC Western Division Pitcher of the Week.

Cortazzo had six extra base-hits for a .900 slugging percentage in seven games during their recent trip to the National Training Center Complex in Clermont, Fla. The senior hit .400 (8-20).

Gumbita pitched in two games; she struck out nine batters and had a 2.62 ERA in eight innings.

Bearcats off to slow start

It hasn't been a good start of the season for the St. Vincent baseball team.

After going 2-4 in Florida, the Bearcats lost all four games this past weekend in Newport News, Va. They were beaten by Castleton State (Vermont), 16-8, Tufts University (Mass.), 3-0, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 10-3, and Newport News Apprentice School, 4-3.

Jordan Britcher has collected 10 hits and scored seven runs, which leads the team.

St. Vincent sweeps Penn State-Fayette

The St. Vincent softball team brought out the bats and swept a doubleheader from Penn State-Fayette, winning 11-3 and 10-0.

Ally Vrcek and Laken Lyon combined on the shutout.

St. Vincent improved to 7-3.

Becky Deane had three RBIs, and Lindsey Daniels had two RBIs.

Andrejcik earns PAC tennis honor

St. Vincent junior Chris Andrejcik (Hempfield) has been named the first Presidents' Athletic Conference men's tennis player of the week for the 2014. Andrejcik helped the Bearcats open the season 1-0 with a 5-4 victory over Penn State-Altoona on Sunday.

He began the match by teaming with Sean Malone at first doubles to earn an 8-3 victory, the Bearcats' lone win in doubles competition. In singles action, he lost the first set at the second position, 6-3, and found himself behind 4-1 in the second set. He then won six of the next seven games to take the set 7-5 and force a match-set tiebreaker, which he won, 10-5, giving the Bearcats the season-opening victory.

Turner, Stith get postseason honors

St. Vincent seniors Dillon Stith and Isaac Turner were named to the All-Great Lakes Region basketball all-star teams.

Stith, the Presidents' Athletic Conference Player of the Year, was named to the first team and Turner to the second team. Stith averaged 19.5 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. He had 18 double-doubles.

Turner reached double figures in 28 of 29 games and averaged 17.2 points per game.
