'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.

Penn State alumni made a statement with a strong show of support for their hockey team at the Three Rivers Classic.

The Nittany Lions, in turn, left Consol Energy Center with a statement victory.

Three first-period goals sparked Penn State to a 5-4 victory Saturday over Ohio State in the consolation game of Pittsburgh's first-year college hockey tournament. Forwards Taylor Holstrom, a junior, and Casey Bailey, a freshman, each scored two goals — and Bailey finished with four points.

Penn State (8-9-0) will join the future Big Ten hockey conference next season. Ohio State (7-8-5) is the first Big Ten school the Nittany Lions had played.

Penn State players gathered at center ice to salute the partisan crowd.

“If you look in the stands and heard the Penn State alumni and fans — how much fun was that to play in front of them?” Penn State coach Guy Gadowsky said.

Sophomore forward Ryan Dzingel turned a hat trick for Ohio State, which neatly transformed a 5-2 deficit into a competitive finish with two third-period markers.

Associate head coach Steve Rohlik lauded the Classic tournament and Gadowsky's budding Penn State program.

“That team's going to be reckoned with from Day 1,” Rohlik said.
