Madison, Hailey, and Taylor Valerio smiled widely while carrying equipment after their afternoon field hockey practice.

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).

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.

Springfield (Delco) first-year football coach Chris Britton is impressed by Adam Krauter's unselfishness just as much as his aggressive and rock-solid play at linebacker.

" In a battle of unbeatens Friday night in Delaware County, with Krauter putting forth another stellar effort in the middle, the senior-laden Cougars stayed perfect with a 21-12 triumph over Central League rival Conestoga.

On Monday afternoon, the freshman headed home Ian Hamilton's corner kick with 18 seconds remaining in double overtime to send the host Gators to a 2-1 nonleague victory over Roman Catholic.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Haley Warden stood near the 10-yard line, awaiting the referee's signal. The early momentum Garnet Valley had built dissolved in the second half of Saturday's PIAA girls' lacrosse final. The Jaguars' five-goal lead over Springfield (Delco) had dwindled to one. "Let's go, Haley," a fan hollered from the Hersheypark Stadium grandstand. The ref's whistle blew, and Warden charged the net and scored off the restarted play to put Garnet Valley back on track. She scored again three minutes later, and the Jaguars rolled to a 13-9 win. The state title was their third in the last four seasons and the first for second-year coach Jenny Purvis.
