Jenny Purvis, the Garnet Valley girls' lacrosse coach, hopped on her toes as the last few seconds elapsed from the clock. The horn at West Chester East's stadium finally sounded.

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.

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.

Maggie Stetson hasn't always been the most confident player on the lacrosse field. So when the Conestoga senior dropped a few balls early in the game Tuesday night against defending state champion Garnet Valley, Stetson used her inner monologue to boost her morale. "I was like, 'I don't know what you're doing right now,' " she said. "And then I was tearing up, and I was like, 'Don't tear up, you got this!' And once I scored my first goal, I was like, 'OK I got it.' " That's because her first goal proved to be the game-winner.

It must have been like music to his ears. Michael Bonaddio was desperately trying to defend Garnet Valley's one-goal lead over Ridley on Thursday night when the ball slipped past him. Fortunately for the junior goalie, he heard the unmistakable ping of the goal post. "That's my best friend," he said, smiling. "I heard the ding just as loud as you did. It's just that in my head, it's a little bit louder. " Ridley fans heard it also, emitting an audible groan of disappointment as Garnet Valley retrieved the ball with about 2 minutes, 30 seconds remaining in the game.
