'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.

For the second straight year, Quaker Valley has been awarded the MSA Sports Cup title by MSA Sports Network.

“The MSA Sports Cup offers a quantitative assessment of athletic programs throughout the entire WPIAL,” Superintendent Dr. Joseph H. Clapper said. “The MSA Sports Cup affirms that our athletic department, our coaches, and, most importantly, our student-athletes are performing at an exceptionally high level.”

Point totals for schools in the WPIAL AA classification ranged from 0 to Quaker Valley's 525. The next highest score was 330, earned by Shady Side Academy.
