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.

Senior attack Sabrina Fusco said the horn was "very exhilarating and lovely. " Senior midfielder Haley Warden called it "a big relief. " "It was like, 'Oh my gosh.

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.

Sam Tomasetti walked to the plate in the fifth inning and roped a two-run single to left field. Reva Alderman followed her in the lineup, just like she has in nearly every game since they were 9 years old. "Outta here" the scoreboard operator for the Garnet Valley softball team said as soon as the ball made contact with Alderman's bat. She was right: The towering fly ball sailed over the fence in left for a three-run shot. A two- to three-minute period Thursday perfectly encapsulated the contributions of the Jaguars' two senior captains.

Episcopal Academy senior Julia Hondros may have noticed that the Churchmen left the door slightly ajar just before halftime against host Penn Charter on Tuesday afternoon. With just 2.3 seconds left in the half, however, Hondros nailed it shut for good. After Hannah Fox notched back-to-back goals for the previously undefeated Quakers, Hondros, a 5-foot-10 Brown recruit, rushed downfield and fired to give Episcopal a five-goal lead, which it parlayed into a 15-6 victory. "Clock awareness," said Hondros, who finished with four goals.

It's been 317 days since Conestoga lost in its first PIAA state final, squandering an early four-goal lead and handing Garnet Valley its second straight lacrosse championship and fourth in the last five years. Last season was nearly perfect for the Pioneers, who finished with an 11-0 record in the Central League and captured their first league title in the tenure of seven-year head coach Amy Orcutt. Although Conestoga's championship game loss is in the rearview mirror with the 2016 season underway, some players still feel the sting of the defeat.

He's just 5-foot-8 and about 150 pounds, so perhaps the element of surprise is Billy Coyle's best friend on the lacrosse field. When all else fails, however, a lefthanded laser also does the trick. The Malvern Prep junior employed both Saturday as the Friars led early, came from behind late, and eventually survived visiting Garnet Valley, 11-10, on Coyle's game-winning goal with 2.9 seconds left. What earned Coyle room to fire was a bit of trickery. After calling a timeout with 16.4 seconds remaining, Malvern coach John McEvoy sent his Friars (5-1)
