'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 Shady Side Academy girls soccer team advanced all of the way to the state semifinals before seeing their season come to an end last week.

And helping lead the team to all of the success was Maggie Scott, a junior, who scored 39 goals.

Two of those goals came in the PIAA semifinal game, which the Indians led before losing to Greensburg Central Catholic in a shootout.

For her effort, Scott has been named The Herald Athlete of the Week.

Scott said she hasn't yet started looking at colleges, but she knows that she wants to continue playing soccer wherever she goes.

She and her teammates were disappointed with the loss to GCC, but were happy with the season.

“It was a tough loss but we were proud to get that far,” she said. “It was the first time that the SSA girls made it to the state semifinals. It was a fun year.”
