'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.

Fox Chapel's girls volleyball team is in no mood to lose. And it's been that way since September.

In the WPIAL Class AAA semifinals at Chartiers Valley, No. 3 seeded Fox Chapel clipped No. 2 North Allegheny, 3-2, on Thursday night to post its 17th straight win and advance to the finals.

The Foxes (18-3) won the second (25-23), third (29-27) and fifth games (15-13) to secure a spot in the title match.

Riley Herrmann led the offense with 17 kills, while Megan Hollingsworth added 15 kills, Sarah Bradley had 13 and Michaela Patsko chipped in nine.

Marcy Meinert led the Foxes with 23 digs and Allyson Hess had 42 assists.

The Foxes, who have beaten North Allegheny twice this season, will take on No. 4 seed Mt. Lebanon at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Chartiers Valley.

They'll be seeking their first championship.

Only one other Alle-Kiski team, Freeport (2010), has won a girls' volleyball title.
