'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.

Elizabeth Forward's Luke Padezan accomplished something many have failed to do this year — keep South Park's offense in check.

But it wasn't enough to hand South Park its first loss of the season as the Eagles clinched the outright Section 4-AAA title with a 5-3 win at Evans Field.

Padezan tossed a nine-hitter and limited the heavy-hitting Eagles to five runs, their second fewest this year.

Randy Dobnak earned the win, going the distance and striking out eight. Adam Thompson knocked in a pair with a double and a single.

South Park (17-0, 10-0) received doubles from Carter Grote, Nick Yobbi, Justin Dilla, and Shane Fetsko.

Elizabeth Forward (11-5, 5-4) got a double from Matt Diehl and a home run from Ryan Wardropper.

Norwin 9, Latrobe 7 — Norwin took a big step toward claiming a playoff spot in Section 2-AAAA with a win over Latrobe (6-7, 5-4).

Noah Smith tossed a complete game, striking out six and walking three.

Dom Farina had three hits, and JJ Matijevic a double for Norwin (8-5, 7-3).

Frazier 17, Clairton 2 (3 inn.) — Clairton's faint playoff hopes took a hit with a Section 2-A blowout loss.

Frazier had 16 hits to make a winner out of pitcher Travis Sanner, who allowed only a double to Robert Boatright.

Zach Lorea picked up the loss for the Bears (3-9, 2-6)

Yough 10, Greensburg Salem 0 (6 inn.) — Josh Sterner went 3 for 4 with an RBI and two runs, Eric Borkovich added two hits and two RBI, and Yough (8-7, 6-3) won in Section 2-AAA action.

C.J. Vargo struck out five in six innings for the win.

Softball

Norwin 6, McKeesport 3 — Nikki Ingel had three hits, including two doubles, and Norwin (8-5) won the nonsection game.

Dom Clark had two hits for No. 5 McKeesport (13-3). It was McKeesport's first loss to a Quad-A team this year.

Penn-Trafford 5, Yough 1 — Lex Ryan knocked in a pair of runs with two hits, and Penn-Trafford (10-5) won the nonsection game.

Nicole Smith earned the win, allowing only a pair of hits.

Macy Mularski (7-8) was saddled with the loss.
