'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 Shady Side Academy boys lacrosse team started the season with four losses, including one to Mt. Lebanon, the top seed in the WPIAL Division I tournament.

Sophomores Michael Concordia and Daniel Marous each had three goals to lead Shady Side Academy (9-8), which has won six of seven. The Indians will play No. 2 seed Seneca Valley (16-1) in the championship game at 8 p.m. Friday at Chartiers Valley.
