Derrick West didn't look satisfied. The Garnet Valley sophomore seemed unimpressed by the fireworks display he and his team watched in the postgame huddle after the Jaguars' 47-7 home win against Penncrest on Friday night. The show, which Garnet Valley put on to honor the seniors, lasted more than 10 minutes. By all accounts, it should have been a perfect moment for West and the Jaguars. Garnet Valley and Penncrest entered the game undefeated and ranked among the top teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, but by the end, it was clear which was the better team.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Their preseason goals were modest: Just win a pair of district playoff games and advance to the quarterfinals. After failing to win a district playoff game last season, their sights seemed fair, junior midfielder Halley Barnes said. The Garnet Valley Jaguars far surpassed their modest expectations, and instead of ending their season exactly three weeks ago, they played on and on. They captured the PIAA state girls' lacrosse title Saturday, holding off a late rally by Downingtown East for a 17-14 victory at HersheyPark Stadium.

Bishop Shanahan coach Vic Bruno felt his team played its "best game of the year" Thursday in defeating visiting Garnet Valley, 5-4, in a Southern Chester County League game. "They felt like playing today," he said, "and were all fired up. " That hasn't been the case all year. In fact, his team played very poorly in losing, 15-3, to visiting Phoenixville on Wednesday in a nonleague contest. Against Garnet Valley, Shanahan scored a run in the first on a Laura Sullivan single, a groundout and an error on a ground ball to second baseman Angela Billups off the bat of Monica Corum.

Garnet Valley has made considerable noise since moving from the Southern Chester County League to the Central League in 2008. Mike Ricci's football squad has posted a 51-8 mark (.864 winning percentage) in league play, with two outright championships (2008 and 2011) and one shared (2009, with Ridley). This season is no different, as the Jaguars are 9-0, 8-0 in the Central League, and set to enter the 16-team PIAA District 1 Class AAAA playoff tournament as one of the top seeds.

Garnet Valley baseball coach Scott Armstrong said he didn't think his club was a Southern Chester County League favorite this spring. Yes, the defending champions had some experienced players back, and had some pitching depth. But the Jaguars also had lost six starters from the team that had won the league and District 1 Class AA titles. Armstrong was forced to shake up his infield, the big move being the switch of Matt Miller from third base to shortstop. Miller's adjustment has been nothing short of fabulous.

When Garnet Valley's Wellington Zaza received the punt with less than a minute left in the first half, it looked as if he was going to be hit immediately, with his Jaguars headed to halftime trailing Central League rival Conestoga. Instead, Zaza broke a few tackles, made his way to the outside, and let his blazing speed do the rest. His 79-yard touchdown return gave Garnet Valley its first lead, and seemed to suck the air out of the Conestoga home crowd. The air would never quite return to Teamer Field, as Garnet Valley defeated the Pioneers, 28-16, Friday night.

Thanks to Jon Vandenberg's late goal in regulation and Matt Taulane's sudden-death tally, Garnet Valley is returning to the PIAA District 1 boys' lacrosse final. After Vandenberg scored with just seven seconds left in regulation, Taulane's tally early in overtime lifted the No. 5-seeded Jaguars to a 7-6 triumph over top-seeded and host Radnor in a semifinal Tuesday night. "I just saw everybody working the ball around," Taulane said. "The defense must have lost me. I found an open gap and took advantage of it. " Vandenberg assisted on Taulane's winner.

Brooke Harner's fielders must have been getting bored by the end of Thursday afternoon's game, but second baseman Bailey Reigel was ready when needed. Harner retired the first 20 batters she faced, and 18 by strikeout, when her last pitch was lined to Reigel, sealing the perfect game as host Kennett downed Sun Valley, 6-0, in a Ches-Mont American softball game. It marked the first perfect game of the West Chester University recruit's career. Of the three balls put in play by Sun Valley, Brooke Duplicki was responsible for two of them.

Coatesville's Mike Boykin has committed to wrestle at North Carolina State, the senior said Tuesday. The recently crowned PIAA Class AAA champion at 220 pounds said that he had considered Rider and a few other schools as well, but that his future teammates and the friendly atmosphere around the school greatly influenced his decision. "I bonded with the guys well down there, and I liked the atmosphere," Boykin said. "The weather is nice, and it just feels like me down there. I really liked it. " Boykin will leave Coatesville with 142 career wins and two state-tournament medals.

The Abington girls' basketball team just did not care, its coach said. The Ghosts did not care Wednesday night that they were playing the second seed in the District 1 Class AAAA tournament. And they did not care that they were underdogs for the second time in four days. "They just wanted to play," coach Dan Marsh said. That attitude led to a one-sided second quarter as the 18th-seeded Ghosts built a lead before stunning host Garnet Valley, 38-33, in the second round. Deja Rawls scored 10 of her 14 points in Abington's 14-2 second quarter, and the Ghosts clinched a berth in the PIAA state tournament for the first time since 2010.

When Bianca Picard talks about the Souderton girls' basketball team, she uses words like strong , tough , and determined - all while describing the squad's desire to win. Watch the senior point guard play just a few minutes for the Indians (16-6), and you'll see no one exudes those attributes more than she does. Selfless and with an infectious love of the game, the 5-foot-7 Picard best demonstrated her grit in a pivotal conference contest against Central Bucks West a few weeks ago. During the close matchup, Picard sprained her right foot - the same one she broke 31/2 months earlier.
