'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 hockey team heads into its season finale with its PIHL Class A playoff positioning secure, but, as Thursday night's blowout win indicated, the Yellowjackets aren't easing up down the stretch.

With eight first-period goals, Freeport routed Greensburg Central Catholic, 12-1, at the Belmont Complex.

Devin Christy and Cole Hepler each had a hat trick, while Thomas Intrieri earned three assists for the Yellowjackets (16-4-1). Greg Newman also finished with three points (one goal, two assists).

Freeport held Greensburg Central Catholic (0-22) to four shots on goal, and Katie Hill earned the victory in net.

Freeport, which will receive the No. 3 seed in Class A, closes its regular-season schedule at Thomas Jefferson (13-8).

Quaker Valley 5, Kittanning 2 — Kittanning (13-8-1) trailed, 3-0, after two periods, but Christian Miller's goal cut the deficit midway through the third. Quaker Valley (22-0) answered with two goals scored 35 seconds apart.

Eli Johns also scored for Kittanning, and Cameron Langham made 38 saves.

Jonathan Pijar had 15 saves for the Quakers.

Swimming

WPIAL championships — Kittanning junior Morgan Joseph cut more than a second and a half from her 100-yard butterfly time at the University of Pittsburgh's Trees Pool during an event in which she finished eighth. The mark dropped from 1:01.97 to 1:00.25.

Joseph will compete again Friday in the 100 backstroke.
