'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.

Plum graduate Adam Stawski shot a second-round 2-over 74 on Tuesday to complete a fifth-place finish at the United States Collegiate Athletic Association men's golf championship at the Blue Course near Penn State University's main campus.

He ended with a two-round total of 152 (78-74).

The Penn State-New Kensington junior also captured the Penn State University Athletic Conference individual title contested between golfers from eight schools in the Penn State University system.

With the fifth-place national finish, Stawski is one of eight golfer to earn 2012 USCAA Golf All-American status.

Stawski's final round on Tuesday included an eagle on the par-5 18th.

He adds this year's PSAUC title to the championship runner-up finish from 2009.

Stawski also was fourth at the 2009 USCAA tournament, and he earned All-American status that year as well.

In addition to his golfing success, Stawski also was selected to the USCAA Academic All-American team.
