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.

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.

A lighting malfunction at Springfield's stadium postponed Friday night's highly anticipated matchup between the host Cougars and reigning Central League champion Garnet Valley until Saturday morning. "I got some sleep, but I was tossing and turning a lot," Springfield senior inside linebacker Adam Krauter said. "It was a rough night. You just can't wait to get out there and get it going. " The 151/2-hour delay proved worth the wait for Krauter and company. With an impressive effort on defense, marking a turnaround from the previous week, the Cougars took a huge step toward their first title since 1994 with a 7-0 victory.

Longtime Garnet Valley football coach Mike Ricci is taking a two-week leave of absence after a sideline altercation with one of his players during the second half of Friday night's 28-7 home win over Central League rival Penncrest. Ricci grabbed a player's face mask in a moment of frustration. Earlier, in a separate incident, he dropped to his knees and briefly lost consciousness while yelling at his players. Garnet Valley athletic director Seth Brunner said Ricci's leave of absence was self-imposed and not a suspension.

" 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.

Before he became the most dangerous player on Shipley's bench, Ronan Higgins was the most promising fan in Shipley's crowd. But coach Thom Schauerman always hoped Higgins would follow in his older brother Conor's footsteps and suit up for the Gators boys' soccer team. So far, the younger Higgins has been everything his coach envisioned. 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.
