'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 unbeaten run to begin the girls volleyball season came to a halt after a 3-2 loss on their home court Thursday against Knoch.

The Knights (9-2, 7-1), who now share first place in Section 4-AA with Freeport (9-1, 7-1), fell behind in the match, but rallied with wins of 26-24 and 15-12 in Game 4 and 5. They claimed Game 1, 25-21, and the Yellowjackets took the next two, 27-25 and 25-20.

Celina Sanks hit 33 kills for Knoch, and Mary Zellhart and Schaely Renfrew contributed 11 and 13.

Freeport and Mars shared the Section 4-AA title last year, while Knoch came in third. In 2011, Knoch and Mars shared the Section 2-AA title while Freeport claimed Section 6-AA.

West Shamokin 3, St. Joseph 0 Stephanie Schrecengost had eight kills, and Alecia Calhoun had seven to lead the Wolves to a Section 1-A win at St. Joseph. Setter Sierra Dailey had 20 assists and added five kills for West Shamokin (8-1, 8-1).
