'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.

The debut of Derry's new tennis courts was a short one last week, as rain kept the team's match with Indiana from being finished.

The pre-match festivities did go on, however, including a ribbon-cutting ceremony by school board member Ted Schmidbauer and several of the Derry girls tennis players.

Board President David Krinock addressed the crowd and helped open the new tennis facility.

In the lineup for Derry that day were Jill Orazio, Hunter Hudson and Maria Palombo at singles and Natalie Sarnese/Emma Crocker and Abby Cox/Heather Ramsey in doubles.

The team returned to action later in the week at Mt. Pleasant for the annual Section 1-AA singles tournament.

Fourth-seeded Orazio won her opening-round match, 10-3, over Paige Hertzog from Mt. Pleasant, and then fell to Brentwood's Amanda Lynch, 11-9, in the quarterfinals.

“Jill really battled hard,” coach Tom Tatone said. “She was losing 5-2 and then the rain came through. All matches were halted for nearly two hours. When play resumed, Jill mounted a big comeback, getting behind by one game, 7-6.

“The final games were very competitive, but Jill could not quite pull out the match. She, too, really improved her singles game (that day).”

Hudson lost her opening-round match, 11-9, to Elizabeth Wohar from California.
