'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.

Freeport's boys golfers are back in the WPIAL team finals for the first time since 1994.

The Yellowjackets finished second in their Class AA semifinal tournament Tuesday at Indian Run Golf Course in Avella by posting a 418. Burgettstown won with a score of 417.

“It's awesome for them,” Freeport coach Joe Sprumont said. “They've had such a good year, and they are a part of the school's history now.”

Senior Robbie Miller and freshman Audrey Clawson led Freeport with 18-hole scores of 79. Junior Cole Hepler followed with an 84, and seniors Richard VanDruff and Luke Mariotti each carded 88s.

The top three teams advanced to the finals, set for Thursday at Cedarbrook Golf Course near Belle Vernon.

Freeport, West Shamokin win — Freeport cruised by West Shamokin and Riverview in a Section 4-AA tri-meet, winning by scores of 18-41 and 20-41. Colin Meehan and Caleb Smith took the top two spots for the Yellowjackets.

West Shamokin edged Riverview, 24-31, behind strong efforts by fourth-place finisher Logan Stancombe and 10th-place finisher David Batistig.

Ford City nips Kittanning — Neither Ford City nor Kittanning had an answer for Shady Side Academy, which easily won the Section 4-AA tri-meet. But the Sabers bested the Wildcats, 27-28. Nathaniel Sedlacek took seventh to lead Ford City, and Jason Nolf had a team-best sixth-place finish for Kittanning.

Freeport sweeps — The Yellowjackets secured their second straight Section 4-AA title and increased their section win streak to 24 with victories over West Shamokin and Riverview. Kayla Zboran, Becca Dudek and Rachel Kubeldis had a one-two-three finish for Freeport.

Lizzy Cornish placed eighth to lead West Shamokin, which also lost to Riverview.

Kittanning wins a close one — Kittanning's 26-30 win over Ford City eased the sting of a lopsided loss to Shady Side Academy in Section 4-AA. Emily Kutch led the Wildcats with a sixth-place finish.
