'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.

Seton-La Salle graduate Emma Simmers, a midfielder on the Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team, continues to receive accolades for a spectacular 2014 season.

Her latest was being honored as an ECAC Division II women's lacrosse first-team all-star selection.

Simmers, a redshirt junior, is the first Seton Hill women's lacrosse player to earn an ECAC postseason award.

Earlier this month, she became the first Seton Hill women's lacrosse All-American when she earned second-team IWLCA All-American honors.

Simmers was a first-team all-region selection as well as an All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference first-team selection this season.

As a sophomore, she was an All-ECC selection.

Simmers led the Griffins' offense with 61 goals and 81 points in 2014. She also had 20 assists on the season.

The Seton-La Salle product also led the team with 80 draw controls and 63 ground balls.

Simmers scored two game-winnners and added 35 caused turnovers. She led the PSAC in ground balls, was third in goals scored and finished tied for fourth in points.

The voting for the ECAC Division II women's lacrosse all-star teams was completed by the head coaches within the ECAC Division II membership.
