That squad will play for a world championship Sept. 4-11 in Perth, Australia. And she has signed to play collegiately at Duke.

On a windswept Chester County hilltop yesterday, two long lines of lacrosse players came together, like the interlocking teeth of a zipper, for the postgame handshake. Malvern Prep and Downingtown East, the last two state champions, had whacked, bumped and raced each other for 48 minutes, with Malvern prevailing, 6-3, on its home field, just a short walk from the site of the Revolutionary War's Paoli Massacre. When the opposing blue and white lines finally moved past each other, the weary players and their coaches slowly separated and walked away, their disengagement on this day fraught with symbolism.
